Happy St. Patrick's Week!


Here's another card that I made for Midnight Madness MMSC44. I decided to go with the more elaborate sketch this time, and made a larger card to accommodate all of my embellishments!

This fun St. Patrick's Day image is a digi stamp from Tracey at The Stamping Boutique. How fun it was to color! I used plain ol' dye ink markers along with a gold ink pen and a glue pen and some blue glitter.

The 3 small images are from a backgrounder stamp made by Cornish Heritage Farms. I layered them on top of flowers that I punched from gold shimmer paper. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up--and it's been in my stash a looooong time--what a blast from the past.

Now, on an unrelated, yet no less important note--who knows what today is? (Here's a hint--I'm still a lab geek, and today is 3/14.)

It's Pi Day!

Here is an instructable on how to better appreciate the amazing Pi:

Happy Pi Day!! :) Who doesn't love a lab geek? I am a lab geek wannabe.

Your card is so beautiful. I love your image and that it is a larger card. It is always nice to see all of the detail added to a creation. That sheer ribbon is just gorgeous. Thank you so much for playing with us at the MMSC this week. Hope you will play again!

Lisa, wonderful St. Patty's day card. Love the pot of gold and the rainbow. The images on the flowers are cute too. Thanks for joining us this week for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Great take on the sketch. Wish I had know about Pi Day sooner, my son in law is a math teacher and I would have called him and wished him a happy pi day, he would have been impressed that I knew that!!! Darn.
