Some Lucky Charms

This week's DRS Designs Challenge is to use Lucky Charms on your creation.  That can be your lucky color, theme, image, paper, number or a charm - anything that shows your lucky charm.  I used green which is my favorite color (and lucky) and a four leaf clover (you can see it on the right bottom of the flowers in the hat - it is the bottom right of the popped up clovers).
The bottom base of my card was made by stamping the new Small Shamrock Group on the panel using two different Distress Inks.  Then I took those same colors and sponged then on the bg to color it up. 
Next, I stamped a few of the Hat full of Shamrocks image.  I cut one panel out using a Spellbinders Die and sponged around the edge of the die.  On the other ones, I just sponged the images using the same two colors of TH Distress Ink that I used on my bottom panel.  I then fussy cut them out and glued them over the die cut panel.  This way, I didn't have to really color anything!  I stamped and sponged a few of new Tall Shamrocks and then fussy cut them out. 
It all needed something so I added some glitter to all the panels in some way or another.
I think this may be my first St, Patrick's Day card.  It was so fun, I am going to make some more!
Hope your day is wonderful and full of good luck!  Hugz


  1. You know what is on my kitchen counter, snow shoveling gloves trying to dry off, so your counter looks a lot better than mine. LOL This is a great St Patty's Day card and I love the way you did it. Nice change from regular coloring. Enjoy your day.

  10. Adorable....We are channeling each other! I like this image, and love the glitter of the gold on the little shamrock groups on your background. It's a really cute image, and I like the way you've edged with the more blue shade instead of more green! (must remember it creates a nice 'glow' to the hatfull of shamrocks! TFS & have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
