St. Pat’s Fact: The harp is the symbol of Ireland. Perhaps the legends of its magical powers come from the time when the bards would sing and tell stories of famous events to the Irish kings and chiefs. During the early 1500s, under the rule of Henry VIII, the harp was first depicted on Irish coins. That tradition is carried on today and the harp is also used for other official duties such as the Irish state seal, official documents and uniforms.
Good afternoon! It’s a gorgeous sunny and warm day out and I’ve got a coffee in the studio while I create some cards and watch the men’s Canadian Curling :) Pretty good day to say the least. I’m using the Waltzingmouse Sketch this week to create a fun Cowboy Shabby card…haha…that’s what I’m calling it…kind of like my Cowboy Glam card a few sketches ago ;) I’m am still quite in love with my WMS Back in the Saddle set. It’s still in my “use first” container on my desk. I haven’t put it in my WMS binder yet. This sentiment fits perfectly into a square nestabilities die. I was also excited to use some new Authentique Free Bird paper. It must be a special collection as the cover of the pad is different from the other ones. The papers are amazing and I can’t wait to use more of them. I love the colours and think this card would easily cheer up a friend :) Hope your day is going well. As always, I so appreciate you stopping by for a few minutes :) Hugs!
