Belated Birthday Wishes…

St. Pat’s Fact: What's good luck on Saint Patrick's Day?: Finding a four-leaf clover (that's double the good luck it usually is). Wearing green. (School children started this tradition of their own -- they used to pinch classmates who don't wear green on this holiday). Kissing the blarney stone.  AND hugging me on my birthday!! Okay, that’s lucky for me ;) I’ve always thought I was lucky to be born on this day :)

belatedbirthday

…are something you won’t have to send me if you’ve already mailed my card or are planning on popping by the old blog on my birthday ;)  lol   Today’s card is for a new challenge, CR84FN, I found through Jean Martin’s blog.  I discovered Jean through Stacey’s Curtain Call Colour challenge while she was part of the design team.  I LOVE her vintage/shabby style and the way she rocks Waltzingmouse Stamps as part of their Mischief Makers design team.  She has inspired me to crack open my WMS binder and start using them!!  Labels 10 is a tricky shape, but when used with the Waltzingmouse Labels 10 stamps it becomes divine IMHO.  So this card uses the CR84FN colours this week.  I haven’t made a quilted background for awhile so dug through my blue patterned paper bag to find a few pieces to use.  I usually stamp my sentiments in black, but the SU bordering blue was open beside my black stamp pad and I accidentally stamped in on that!! LOL  I didn’t want to start over, so left it…but I think it works :)  Hope you are having a fabulous day…only 2 more till St. Patrick’s Day…how will you celebrate?  Hope you come by…there may be a little celebration here {wink,wink!}
