Luck of the Irish....




Today I wanted to share with you the card I made for my MIL, every year on St. Patrick's day she has a big feast with prizes and only green food, green fruit and veggie platters, green pineapples on the ham, green dessert and even peanut butter and green jelly sandwiches for the fussy kids. We all dress up and have a great time all getting together. Tilda is coloured with prismacolour pencils, I stamped the lucky and shamrocks from the CTMH March puzzle set, Flowers are a mix of dollar store and wild orchid. I am entering my card at....
