Good morning! I did get a little bit of play time in yesterday afternoon and I made about a dozen of these little lucky St. Patrick's Day cards.

The image is Shamrock Wreath by Lynne Stansbery. I really love coloring this wreath. I used Copics of course and added a bit of sparkle with some glitter on the ribbons.
The sentiment was computer generated and printed at the same time I printed the image. I sponged a little around the image while it was still in the die. The designer paper is from Papertrey Ink. I finished the top off with a green and white gingham bow.
On the inside I printed the I'm So Lucky To Have You image from Squigglefly , but I erased the four leaf clover and added my own!

It's a little green shamrock I crocheted and attached a pin to the back so the person who gets this card can remove the shamrock and wear it on St. Patrick's Day for luck! Here are instructions for crocheting your own little shamrock.
I used embroidery floss and a size 7 hook.
crochet 4 and slip stitch to form a circle
inside circle do a triple crochet , double crochet, a triple crochet.
Chain 3 and slip stitch.
repeat twice more for remaining petals.
For a stem you you now chain four and crochet into the 2nd chain from
hook, slip stitch in next chain and finish off.
These are very quick to make. I hope you enjoy making a bit of your own luck! I'm entering this card into the Corrosive Challenge which is to use a form of distressing. I distressed my edges with the ink.
Today I'm going to get some of this week's meals prepared and get a few things ready for the work week. It looks like it's going to be about 70 degrees today so I'm sure Riley and I will be getting outside some too. But I did a lot of work around here yesterday, so I know I will be treating myself to some crafty time today too!
I hope you have a fabulous day, and thanks for looking!
