Finally...St. Pat's Cards made


Everytime I go in my craft room I spread out different green dps and embeilies and no mojo. I end up making something else. Last year I used my QK alphas and coordinating Bazzill cs and die cut "Lucky to have you". I also made a few tag cards with K&Co. products and a "Lucky" tag. I didn't want to do the same cards as last year, but I was stuck. I pulled out my DCWV box which had an abundance (11 cards!) of this green color. Obviously difficult to match. The dp is by Reminisce...good match! I cut this 12x12 sheet into 4x4 squares. Now I had difficulty matching cs. No cs I owned matched to my satisfaction. On to scrap bags. Can you believe I used a 6x6 square of green cs and a 6x6 square of yellow from my scrap bags? Now for a design...I was inspired by a card Tracy sent me (see it here: http://smallsmackerels.blogspot.com/2008/01/another-warm-day-here-in-burg-oldie-but.html) The cards still needed something; I pulled out a bottle of green glitter glue (I prayed it had not dried up...it is probably at least 10 years old!) I made 9 of these cards total (and ran out of Reminisce dp). Only 2 of these green cards left in my DCWV box :) Phew! I took them over to the coffee shops this morning. Now to find some Easter card mojo...
