Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Super quick post tonight because it's late and I'm exhausted!! The initial inspiration for this card came from this one by Mary Fish - so cute! Here's my take on her heart-y clover:My friend Sarah stopped by tonight so we could get our craft on for a few hours and while we sat here talking story, I inked up my much-neglected PTI Heart Prints set and paired it with the sentiment from A Year of Sweet Sentiments by Taylored Expressions. The 4-leaf clover is actually 4 heart punches with a Basic Grey button center. I used Kiwi Kiss ink along with Very Vanilla CS, Kiwi Kiss textured CS and Muirfield DP. The sentiment is cut out with my Double-ended Tags nestabilities die and I finished up with some hemp twine.

When I showed this card to Joel, he responded with his usual unenthusiastic "that's really nice", but first gave me one of his "looks", a chuckle and said "when the s&*t have you ever sent anyone a St. Patrick's Day card?" (he is often amused at the holidays and events I will create a card in celebration of). Sarah got a good laugh out of this. I will say that later he sheepishly took another look at the card and gave me a slightly more enthusiastic "that's really nice". Ya gotta love him.
