Fairy Irish!

I hope that you are having a fabulous weekend!
We're celebrating Ken's 7th birthday all weekend and later this week, I have something to share with you all... I can hardly wait :)

In my last post, I showed you a sneak peek of my Irish Fairy Jolinne.
Here's another look at her... isn't she so sweet?!

You can find different Jolinne stamps over at MFT.

I Dream of Stamping has a new challenge for March! It can be for St. Patrick's Day. Or perhaps you think green is the most awesome color. Maybe you live green and want to incorporate that into your project. Whatever your reason is, we invite you to make a card that is "GREEN".  

I combined this challenge with a new sketch from The Sweet Stop.
Here's the sketch for SSS47:

Here is my card!

See that little clover in the corner?
I put it together on a button with 4 petite hearts.
I used the Heart to Heart punch (SU) to punch out the hearts.
Then I found a teeney green button and added a glue dot to the top.

Then I used the four holes as a guide for my teeney hearts.

After adding the third shamrock leaf, attach your stem (if you want one).

I swear I have the Bermuda Triangle thing goin' on in my craft room. A few weeks ago, I misplaced my Crop-A-Dile. A few days ago, I misplaced my CD holder of Circle Nestabilities. Both are still missing. Tonight, I misplaced the shamrock that you see in the picture above. My husband helped me search all over my craft room and it's nowhere to be found! My youngest came out, shook his head, and said (with hands on his hips) "Those Leprechauns!"

Okay! Now it's YOUR turn to show me!
Hop over to I Dream of Stamping for the details of this challenge!
