Lucky You

 St. Pat’s Fact: One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock. And this stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity. He used it in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day.

Good morning!! Another week, but a lucky one if you are in Ms Plut’s class!! HA!!  You see, being a St. Patty’s Day baby, she has a leprechaun that comes to visit and the tricks kick into high gear the closer it gets to St. Patrick’s Day!!  Heavens knows what fun we may find first thing this morning!! ACK!!  In celebration of my birthday week (yes, I take a week!), I made a fun Irish card with some LOUD patterned paper and a sweet little Verve shamrock :)  I’m using Kasia’s sketch from this week’s Retro Sketch challenge.  Kasia is another CAS Queen…really, you should check out her work HERE!  I was so tempted to put some ribbon on here somewhere!! HA!  But that’s not CAS!! LOL  I hope you have a lucky day!! Watch out for those silly leprechauns!

Oh I wish I was a student in your class =) If you only take a week, you're conservative - I took a whole month last year ;) Gorgeous card - love your take on the sketch and those beautiful papers.

Fantastic take on the challenge Maureen, enjoy your birthday week sounds like your students will. We are on March Break here in Ontario this week. Do you get a week off in the spring?

Great card Maureen and the Kraft card base really shows it off well. Have a great birthday week!

Kraft and green - can't get any better than that :) Great mix of greens too. Can I come and be in your class this week - sounds like great fun :)

I bet the children are jumping for joy...and those not in your class likely wishing they are :) I didn't know that about the father, son and holy spirit. Such a wonderful bit of trivia. Your card is lovely! Hope the week got off to a great start. Went back to the doctor for my cough again! He thinks it is allergies now...hhmmm...picked up some new medicines!

I love that you used a mat stack and a frame for this card instead of the square in the sketch, it looks awesome :)

The 2 different greens go well together and I love the shape of the frame! Thanks for playing with us at Retrosketches Maureen!

Oooooh, Maureen I absolutely LOVE this card. :)
that patterned paper is gorgeous. I always find it so hard to use patterned papers.

You totally rocked this sketch. That combo of frames is awesome.
