St. Patrick's Day!

Hi, Friends!

It's a gloomy rainy windy day here.  I thought for sure my dog wouldn't want to go out into the mess.  But, he did and when he came in I had the paper towel ready before he could shake the wet all over.  He's such a good dog!  One of his favorite spots is guarding our front door.  He's so protective and we are so lucky(blessed) to have him!  Here is a pic of our sweet, Shadow...

And, speaking of lucky(blessed) the other males in my life are my husband and my son!  I made the above card...two of the same...for each.  I made it last weekend when crafting with my friend, Nancy.  I can't tell you what company the stamp is from since I borrowed it from my friend and forgot to note the company.  The border die I used is from Die Versions.  The embossed shamrock folder is from Darice.

My son is visiting my sis-in-law in Phoenix right now...so jealous...lol!  But, we did visit with her last September.  Anyways, I thought I'd send him some happy mail that will be waiting for him when he returns home.  I placed a lotto ticket inside the card.  I hope he's lucky!

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a wonderful day!



  1. Love the orange and bright green combination and the embossing on your card! Your husband and son will love it. Hopefully that lotto ticket will pay off! Your Shadow is adorable...

    Love your fun St. Patty's card, Maria! I love that bright green you used. Looks amazing mixed with orange. And what a cool embossing folder! Your son and hubs are going to love it!

  10. Great pic of Shadow! My dog Rafa (a schnauzer) doe not enjoy the wet weather too much but we do go to walks anyway... I think he hates the weather because he knows he has to go to shower for paw washing afterwards! ;) Great card. We don't celebrate this holiday in Finland but I think it's a fun one!

  11. What a fun card and I love all the texture from the embossing. Shadow looks a lovely dog!
