Luck of the Irish!

Hi there!

Just thought I'd share a St. Pat's card with you that
I made recently for a challenge over at Crafter's Cafe.
I wanted to do some sewing on this card, but decided
not to because of the glitter.  I love the delicate detail
of the shamrock stamp from Inkadinkadoo.  Lots of
layering, lace, ribbon and buttons for this card to
celebrate "going green" day!:-) 

One of my co-workers decided to have a little contest
to name the leprachaun hanging on her door.  Some of
the names were quite comical.  Anyways, the one with
the most votes won a couple of lottery tickets.  Our
Xray tech won.  I'm not sure if he got lucky with winning
on the lottery tickets or not.  I'll have to ask tomorrow.:-)

Ok, that's it for now.  I do have some very exciting
news to share in a couple of weeks.  So, please do
check back for the details.  Thanks for dropping by
today!  Take care and have a wonderful week, hugs!
