The wearing o' the green!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Remember to wear something green today so you don't get a pinch.
Can you believe that I've LOST my new Luck of The Irish stamp set that I bought last month from Papertrey Ink? *pout* I've looked everywhere in my studio...
So I dug out an old Studio G $.88 set and used that instead. *shrugs*

Thanks for all the birthday wishes here on the blog and on FB too! I felt so loved! And among other things, my hubster bought me tickets to see Tom Petty and Crosby, Stills, and Nash in concert! Whoo hoo! Does he know what I love or what? Actually, as wedding present my best friend bought us tickets to see CSN 7 years ago, so this will be the second time we've seen them! I LOVE multiple harmonies...makes me giddy.

I made this small 3 1/2 square card for my mom this morning using the same set of $.88 stamps, a small heart punch and some floss that I colored with a Copic to match Ripe Avocado. You can't tell in the photo, but the tiny shamrocks are all glitttery and sparkly.

Thanks for stopping by today! Gave a good one!

Cute cards, Dana! I love the mini one...I need a heart punch!

That Luck of the Irish set is little, it's probably tucked in between a couple other sets or something. What a bummer though!

I love the little Studio G sets! Your cards are perfect.....I remember when I couldn't find one of my PTI sets, made me so angry.....I eventually found it (I had actually overlooked it when I was looking!)

I love the shades of green in the first card, and (because simple is my thang...) the little 3x5 is adorable. Good idea using hearts for leaves.

Happy Saint Patrick's day to you all!!

Just checking in on some of your latest creations again. You are doing a beautiful job. I see you like buttons...a lot! I think you have one on almost every card. Is it your signature touch?! lol. Thank you for the inspirations I get from your cards!

Pretty cards! I love how you used the heart stamp to make your shamrock.

Top 'O' Th' Day to you Ms Dana, and Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Your cards turned out lovely, the second one is especially cute with the tiny shamrocks - I love tiny things! But I can't believe you lost your Luck Of The Irish set - tsk tsk!

I like these just the same, even if they aren't PTI stamps! Great creativity.
