Luck of the Irish Blog Hop

Are you looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Well, you’re in luck being at this blog hop!! We’ve got great projects from very creative designers today! So if you started at Janet's Creative World, then you’re in the right place. If not, please make sure you stop at all the blogs and leave a comment. Janet is giving away a Close To My Heart Cloud Nine Cardmaking kit valued at $45.00. Now there’s some gold you’ll want to have a chance on!
How’s that for blog candy?? 

Without further ado.. here’s my project:

This cute Shamrock card came from SVG Cutting Files.  Normally you need to resize these to 80% for them to cut at the appropriate size.  I forgot to do that this time around...but I used my precious and expensive Bo Bunny polka dot paper so I was not going to let this go to waste!!!  I made it work!

 The nuggets didn't fit quite as snug as they should...but it was fine..and as a bonus it fit 6 nuggets instead of 5!!  That was really the only difference.  I also put a sheet of clear acetate in the opening so the nuggets wouldn't fall out.

The cute St. Patrick's Day sentiment came from Jaded Blossom...but it was special free set with a purchase of a release bundle!!!! Sorry to say you can't buy this separately!!!  They have freebies like this all the go check them out!!


Now do an Irish jig to the next blog: Lori ~
Here’s the line-up should you get distracted by other Leprechaun trying to trick you! Thanks for joining us today and be sure to wear green March 17th so you don’t get pinched!!
