St.Patrick's Day Cards + Free Darling Image+Challenge #4

How are you?  I've seen Lauren twice in one week (they stopped last week on their way to New Orleans and stopped again on their way back), so I'm feeling pretty lucky!   I hope you're feeling as lucky as me!   

I've got a couple of St.Patrick's Day cards to share today.  I just finished all the pre-orders for St. Patrick's Day this weekend and will be mailing and delivering them next week.  

I really like the look of this shamrock.  At first, I wasn't sure about all the different green hues, but I decided to go with it.  I just gathered old papers that I've always liked and cut hearts.

What really makes this shamrock cool, is the folding and rolling of the hearts, which adds a lovely layer.
I used a heart die, but if you don't have one, I've got a pattern for you below.

If you would like a pattern for the hearts and stem, you can get it HERE.

Oh, she makes me smile!  She's so sweet collecting Shamrocks in her apron.  

If you would like to create a little something with this darling girl, you can download her HERE.  

How about a new challenge?

Link up any project related to St. Patrick's Day or has the color green.  Link up by March 16th.  One winner is chosen by random selection by InLinkz.  Prize is a $20.00 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink!

Find the challenge HERE or scroll down one post.

Are you feeling lucky?  You might win the prize - link up now!

Have a lovely week...

  4. Hello, Lori! These are so cute! I love the little retro shamrock girl - thank you for sharing the image with us! I like all the different patterned papers for your shamrock! Such a clever way to make it with the hearts! I love that each card has a sparkly shamrock too! I don't make any cards for St. Patrick's Day as it's not a card-giving occasion around here but I love seeing them! Your challenge sounds like fun and hopefully I can make a green card for you!

  5. What adorable cards Lori.
    Sounds like you have had a lovely family time recently - how wonderful.

  6. So sweet Lori - do you realize the images you use are all from my wee childhood! I really don't feel that old - well my mind and heart doesn't feel that old - my body? Now that's another question!
