Happy St Patrick's Day

Happy Green Day yall! I don't have any new projects to share tonight but I at least wanted to stop by & say hello. With 2 boys each playing soccer & baseball I haven't had much time to make anything, but I hope to work on something soon. I'm not sure exactly what project I will tackle next, but I did buy several digital images from Dustin Pike this evening & I wanted to shop Lettering Delights' Dollar Days sale, but their website is having issues due to too much traffic. Have a great evening & thanks for coming by!

Jacey's birthday card

We went to Jacey's 7th birthday party last weekend & I forgot to post a picture of the card I made for her. I also put her name on the bag in matching letters, but forgot to take a picture of it.

I just love pop-up cards but don't always take the time to make them. I'm glad I made time on this one because I think it turned out really cute.

Happy Easter box

This evening I bought some new SVG files from Lettering Delights, including one that makes awesome boxes. I decided to start with one of the boxes.

This box, which is basically as large as I could make it & still fit on a 12in x 24in piece of paper, is 7 inches wide, 4 1/4 inches deep, & is 3 1/4 inches tall up to the fold.

I put a yummy chocolate bunny on one side & Happy Easter on the other. This group of files has several boxes that are basically the same except the handles vary.

I decided to go ahead & make the fancy scalloped handles first & I'm glad I did. I think it goes well with the floral paper I used for Happy Easter. I'm so excited at what a large box this ended up being. It would be perfect for filling with goodies for a birthday present.

Happily Ever Challenged #15 - Tribute to Saint Patrick

Good evening! This evening I made a card to play in another challenge. Most of the bloggers I follow will have one card that fits several challenges. I just don't see how they do that! I have a hard enough time with one challenge at a time. Today I decided to play along with Ted at Happily Ever Crafter. This month's challenge is a tribute to Saint Patrick.
Not only did you card have to feature a 3 leaf clover, it also had to be primarily green, white, & orange, which are the colors of Ireland's flag.

I like how this turned out, but boy was it hard to come up with! The card base is made with A Child's Year cartridge and the flowers are from the Pooh & Friends cartridge. The base was too plain just white so I embossed it with the script folder. Why the script? Because I didn't know what I wanted it to say :)
