About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

A wee bit of Irish luck

I created this beauty for two different challenge blogs.

First up is BBTB2
Their challenge this week is National Old Stuff Day.....
to use a cartridge that you haven't used in a while. 
I chose 3 birds on Parade. 
This bird cage already had the vine....I just added a four leaf clover image in several places 
and added it on top of the existing vine and welded it together. 

The next blog is Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.
Their challenge theme was, can you guess???
Yep,  it was St. Paddy's day. 

I used Sour Apple Cricut pen to write the sentiment. 

After I had it all together I thought that it needed something extra.
So,  I used a MS heart punch and created the large 4-leaf clover to put in the corner. 
Added some jewels and call it done.

Until later, Paddys and Lasses..........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!

Crystal, your card is fabulous! You are truly an artist when you can create something as lovely as this. I hope you don't mind if i share a short story with you. A local institution does an annual fundraiser where they ask for donations from local artists and then auction them off. The other day I was saying to somebody I needed to get my donation of packages of cards ready for this year's fundraiser. The person I was talking to says, "But only artists donate to that!" I guess she thought an artist only painted lol. I have since "schooled" her on the many creative contributions "Artists" make to our world! Thank you for joining us at our challenge this week at BBTB2!
