We could all use a bit of Irish Luck!

I could use a little Irish luck this year.  What I've gotten so far is a bunch of  malarkey!!  I'm tellin' ya when it rains it pours.  Now I realize how blessed I am.....  I have wonderful children, grandchildren, friends and family.  I have a roof over my head and Lord knows I don't miss many meals HOWEVER I could use just a wee bit of a break from the continuous breakdown of household items and the continous flow of cash OUT of my bank account.  I need money to buy scrapbooking supplies! NOT repairs and bills haha.  Last Saturday we found out we have to pay Uncle Sam an INSANE amount of money.  Now I don't know if I've mentioned what a tight wad my husband is but lets just say he still hasn't recovered.  Oh well it's just money and as the saying goes... "You can't take it with you".

Today I am posting a card I made using a digital stamp called Bagpipe Patrick, from Sassy Cheryl's.  You can look at all the fabulous stamps at this site HERE.

I used a small rubber stamp and Versamark in "Champaingne" to create the small shamrock watermarks on the background paper. For the Large Shamrock cutout, I used my Cricut. It was an image from Paper Dolls Dressup cartridge.  I cut it out of green cardstock and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Lucky.  I also used some Lettuce colored Flock for the grass under his feet.  I plan to give one of these cards to each of my kids along with some sugar cookies.  WE WILL SEE if that happens.  I just don't know if I can get it all done.

OH... I almost forgot.  For those of you who like to check out daily deals for scrapbooking supplies.  I have found several that you may want to check out. These are my favorite

Flowers to Flourishes and Peachy cheap have great deals and usually I find that they are great even when shipping costs are added in.  Crop Chocoate is a great site because even though they have smaller priced items, you can add them to your cart and hold them there until you build up a large amount and then ship it all at once.  They even offer free shipping after a certain dollar amount.  I have ordered from these sites on many occassions and have not been dissappointed.

Happy Friday.
