My Friend

St. Pat’s Fact: The actual color of St. Patrick is blue. Green became associated with St. Patrick's Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals, and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.

Good morning!  Well, it seemed taking a night off from stamping worked last night :)  I feel refreshed and a card sketch popped into my head as I got home from work :)  The colours are from the colourQ challenge this week and I’ve made sure I followed the colours to a capital “T,” including not adding a 5th colour from the picture (I have a habit of doing that! Sorry! ;)  I will confess to this card having a “blooper” though…see if you can find it and let me know in a comment!! It’s always fun to have a game going!! LOL  And no, it’s not that it’s NOT a St. Patrick’s Day card!! LOL  I thought I’d throw you all and make a CAS friendship card :)  It could also be a little birthday shout out to blog buddy, Heidi, for today is her birthday :)  Happy Birthday Girl!!  Thanks for stopping by…have you figured out the blooper?

Well, it looks perfect to me! But I guess the clock is sideways! I do love it though and probably wouldn't have noticed the clock if you didn't point it out! LOL!

Your "blooper" must be inside the card, because I don't see anything remotely wrong with the front! :) That is such a fun ribbon treatment and a great CAS design. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at the ColourQ!

Marisa said...

Too early in the morning for me to find an error, but I think I agree with Dee in that the numbers on the clock seem to be upside down - not that I would have noticed all on my own LOL! Have a great day :)

Gorgeous, Maureen - I love that ribbon treatment! So COOL! And the layout is really terrific, too! Thank you so much for playing with us at the colourQ this week!

Sylvia said...

Maureen, this is fabulous! I love all of those gears, what a great stamp. Love the ribbon/button treatment too. :)

I've been enjoying your cards and the St. Patrick's Day trivia. The 17th is our anniversary...actually, that's pretty common among my teaching colleagues who married during Spring Break.

Thanks for the shout out girl, I have had fabulous weather this year- it hit 70 degrees.

The card is wonderful and honestly no one would have noticed the clock if you had not told them. You are too funny.

Have a fab day!
Heidi

Oh, I always love what you do, even if the clock is stamped upside down! It looks better that way anyway...just consider it creative license! Thank you so much for sharing this with us at the CQC!

Lynn said...

You are such a goof :) I had to stare for a bit to realize the clock didn't have the 12 at the top. I love this...the ribbon with the button at the top and the three on it are awesome. What a great way to get in the shades of green and I love the soft, soft gray stamping.

Aimes said...

Simply stunning, Diva! I saw no bloopers at all on this CAS beauty - must be that gorgeous green ribbon and those buttons distracting my eyes!
Aaaah OK so I've cribbed the answer from Lynn....well I prefer the clock on its side! Especially if the time it tells means I can catch a few extra winks LOL!
Hugs!
