I’ve often been asked if I’m Irish… dark eyes and hair, first name Kelly. Well, nope, I am Ukrainian on both sides! ha ha! I guess my mom was pretty easygoing about choosing names when I was born.
I’ve always enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day and the festivities, especially hiding chocolate gold coins in my kids shoes. I know they’re a little old for that now (and their shoes are pretty stinky! lol!) but I still pretend the leprechauns show up at night, and the kids are always happy to have some chocolate.
Today on the Crafty Power blog, I am sharing a really GREEN shamrock card. Click HERE to visit the Crafty Power blog and see a photo tutorial on how I made the shamrock.
I used Core’dinations Spotted card stock in 2 shades of green for the card base.
I am feeling VERY lucky because we found our own pot of gold yesterday …. a puppy!
He is a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier, an Irish breed. I honestly didn’t even think about the significance getting him now so close to St. Paddy’s day! He is a sweetie and very laid back, and we love him! We named him Finnigan….and are calling him Finn for short.
Isn’t he a cutie? Of course one of my close friends said, “And now you’ll be able to make lots of doggy scrapbook layouts!” lol
I hope you have lots of luck coming your way on March 17 … or at least a day filled with sunshine and rainbows!
