Happy St. Patrick's Day!!


In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Suzanne Dean has issued a challenge for the Susana’s Custom Card & Art Design DT to create a card/project using shades of green with one neutral. Yikes! I had to really think about that one. Thought about making a St. Patrick's Day card, and decided against it because . . . I don't know any leprechauns? Smiley from millan.net
LOL So I made a "Just Because" card using one of my most favorite Karen Lockhart images called Apples In Chintz Bowl. Isn't it just too yummy?!! I used some Kiwi Kiss DP, and a sketch from my new favorite book from Amazon called "CardMaker's Sketch Book". It really has some fabulous sketches and saves a whole lotta time - you really need to get yourself one!




Stamps: Apples In Chintz Bowl, Floral Frenzy (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper: Kiwi Kiss CS, White CS (Neenah), Kiwi Kiss DP
Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Quickie Glue Pen, Circle Classic & Scalloped Nesties, Cuttlebug, Tags Trio (Spellbinders), Buttons, Glue Dots, Scalloped Edge Punch (EK Success), Copics, Ribbon (SU), Karen Foster Scrapper’s Floss

Thanks for stopping by!
