Feeling Green

It's time for the new Sentimental Sunday's challenge. This week we are challenging you to "Go Green!" You can interpret however you feel, St. Patrick's day, the color green, or even recycling, but be sure to include a sentiment.

I decided to make a card for St. Patrick's day using a new, precolored digi from Meljen's Designs and a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs. Using a precolored digi made putting a card together really quick. These papers are out of my stash. I bought them a few years ago when a local scrapbooking store went out of business and they have just been sitting there waiting to be used.

I am looking forward to making my Guinness-Braised Beef Brisket & Quick Cook Cabbage and cracking open a Guinness while listening to my Celtic playlist on Thursday. What do you do for St. Patrick's day?

I hope you will join us in the "Go Green!" challenge at Sentimental Sundays. Thank you for stopping by!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
