Happy St. Patrick's Day and Winner!

Hi, and let's do the important stuff first:

Random Generator picked a lot of people. When I checked that number & went to the blog, there was no  blog candy picture posted. Or, the number was for a person who had not visited in a long time so obviously no posted candy either. For other numbers, the blog had not been updated in many, many months or years, so again, no visits or pictures. A few followers don't have blogs, so I knew they couldn't post a picture, and that would not have prevented them from being a winner IF they had visited. Just about decided to forget about the picture requirement, (which didn't seem quite fair to those who _had_ posted the candy picture) and finally got a blogger name who had the picture in the side bar AND has visited regularly.

Lisa, please contact me with your info by next Saturday, March 24, so that I can get these goodies mailed to you! And thanks for being a follower, and having that picture posted. (Comment moderation is on, so no one should see your private info).
 
Now for the last of the St. Patrick's Day cards. One is for the Mr. ( he's not Irish either! The only green he likes is the spending kind and cute frogs too)..
 


When I saw this cute little set, I just had to order it. These little Stamping Bella Irish chicks made me happy and were a hoot to color. There are lots of snippets from other cards on these 2 - and now all the stamps, papers, and green stuff have been picked up and put away for next year! (aren't you glad?!) On to Easter - Bunnies, eggs & Jellybeans.


Last one for the year. This may be a CC Stamping image called Teddy, but I can't remember. I can look it up if someone wants to know. This last one was for Mr. and he liked it.

We tried a little play last week doing dirty pour acrylics. I'd seen a couple bloggers whose work I love show this technique, of which I'd never heard. Youtube searching  commenced, and after looking a quite a few, had DH come in an look at one. He agreed it would be fun to try, so I gathered the supplies, and finally on a rainy afternoon, we gave it a go. Can't say we had stellar results, but it was fun (and messy). I'll share the results of our canvas when I get a chance to photo it.

In the meantime, congratulations to Lisa, hope you will contact me by March 24 (next Saturday) so I can mail the package to you. Thanks to you all for stopping to visit today, and Big Hugs.

  4. Congrats to Lisa on the win! Yay! It's such an awesome prized - enjoy your new goodies!

    Your cards are so cute, Mary! Those chicks are adorable, and that little bear is precious! I look forward to seeing what you made with the dirty pour acrylics - I remember seeing Jennifer McGuire do a faux acrylic pour so I'm eager to see the real thing. I hadn't heard of it before I saw it on her blog but she said it's all the rage.
