Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite days of the year.  I have wonderful memories of my mom making corned beef and cabbage.  The last time I was able to enjoy it was before we moved south from Ohio in 1989.  My niece, Bridget has carried on the tradition most years since.  The years pass too quickly, but I hold on to those cherished moments.  I have dreamed of going to Ireland since I was a little girl.  We are planning for next year to be the one!  I have a few things on my bucket list while there:  to hike Croagh Patrick, golf, research family history and to see Northern Ireland. 

I love this sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I thought he would be perfect for a card for my Aunt Dorothy.

May you know
that you are ever embraced
in the kind circle of God.

Lawn Fawn Goodie Bags

Happy New Year!

This die from Lawn Fawn was one of many crafty Christmas gifts that I received from my sweet hubby.  This die makes the cutest little bags and they are so easy to put together.  I love the detail of the stitching around the handle and the "lunch bag" type top.

Can't Sleep - A Day for Daisies

I love this sweet little image from A Day for Daisies.  Their new challenge is Traditional Christmas Colors and I thought that she would be perfect and just adorable in her red and green jammies. I'm pretty sure she can't sleep because she is waiting for Santa. Isn't the teddy bear sweet as can be?

I know that after Christmas, I won't be in the mood for making Christmas cards, so I am going to enjoy it for now.  This card will be donated next Christmas.

Sugar Nellie - I Like To Be Pretty

Good Morning!  I finally got caught up with housework, so I am making some more Christmas cards.  This adorable image from Sugar Nellie reminds me of my sweet niece, Bridget.  I kept this very clean and simple.  I thought the image was so sweet and not too much more was needed.

Betty Ice Skating

This is one of the first digi stamps that I bought years ago.  I was testing the waters over whether or not stamping and card making would be something I would enjoy.  Yes, I love it! It definitely has been fun.  Slowly (okay, maybe not), I have made an investment with many crafting tools, papers, glues, copic markers and way too much more to mention.

On this image, I used Crayola colored pencils. I thought about redoing her with Copics, but I just thought she was too cute not to use.  This is the last card for the November/December, I Feel the Love Project, which completes my goal of ten cards.  I wish I could do more, but I am not good at mass producing and it takes me a while to find just the right sentiments for inside and out.

I have so many cute images left that I would love to color and make a few more Christmas cards, but I really have to clean the house!  :)
