Luck Of The Irish

Good morning and welcome!
Can you believe that it's Monday...again?  I don't know where the weekend's gone!  But that's ok, Mondays aren't all bad, because Monday means another great Challenge Me Monday over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  This week's challenge is called "Luck of the Irish".  Here are the guidelines for this fun challenge:
* Create a project using a shamrock or the color green
* Your project must include at least one Cricut cut

Let me show you my card for the challenge...


* I used "Art Philosophy" to create the white frame.  The bottom portion is stamped with the background stamp "Script" by Pink By Design.  The top layer is covered with Crystal Fine Glitter by Martha Stewart
* The pot of gold and rainbow are from the "Simply Charmed" cartridge.  This cut is made at 2.5 inches.  I used Golden Rod Stickles on the pile of gold.
* The shamrocks were in a little bag of buttons that I picked up from Hobby Lobby
* Ribbon is from "Celebrate It"
* Sentiment mat is cut from Spellbinders "Ribbon Tag Trio 3"
* Sentiment is from Joy's Life "You're So Punny"

And, here's the inside of my card...

(I am also going to enter this card in the challenge going on over at Bitten By The Bug 2 which includes using a shamrock and the color green.)

That's it for me, but I hope you will pop over to FCCB and see what the other Design Team members have created.  I had a little sneak peek and I'm telling you, they have created some fabulous projects to share with you!  After you check them out...go get creative and join in on this fun challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you create!

Until next time,

  19. Wonderful card. Love the window and of course the shamrocks. Thanks for joining the Shamrock challenge at BBTB2.

  20. Hi Tanya! So glad to have you back on the team!!! Yay! I've ALWAYS loved your work and this card is no exception. I love the clean look of it. Very sharp! Every time I look at that gorgeous owl card and cupcake card you sent me, I think of you! They are both in my craft room. I also believe I don't think I sent you anything in return and if that's the case, I am soooooo sorry! :( I promise to make up for it this term! I feel just terrible about that. I really can't remember if I did or didn't send you a thank you even. It was so long ago, but I do still think about it and want you to know how much I appreciate both of the lovely cards you sent to me. Again, so happy to have you back as a teammate again and I can't wait to see more from you! :0)
