Lucky...



There are quite a few things that I feel lucky to have but right about now I'm feeling so very lucky to have so many great online friends in "blogland." :) I love to hang out on the PTI forums - they are filled with so many caring, thoughtful, and creative souls from not only all over the US but from all over the world. I made this card for a recent swap on Papertrey Ink and sent it to Monica in Florida. I really like these tall (or long if you turn it on its side!) cards; this one is 4" x 8".

The inside is stamped with a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps and says:
For each petal on the shamrock
this brings a wish your way,
Good health, good luck, and happiness
for today and every day.
-An Irish blessing

Stamps: Luck of the Irish (PTI), brackets (unknown), clover (WMS)
Ink: Ripe Avocado (PTI)
Paper: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist (PTI); stripes (MME); polka dots (MM); vintage book print
Other: twine (PTI), scalloped border die (PTI), ribbon, button, flower punch

I have one more St. Patrick's Day card that I'll post later. Later, gators! :)
