St. Paddy's Day

Hello again & I hope you've had a pleasant day. I spent part of it doing some house chores; then getting some chili in the crockpot, fixing sides of cornbread & cabbage slaw ...all ready to put on the table. And cleaned up the kitchen too. I feel so organized! (I never have a meal prepared this far ahead unless we're planning for guests. I'm breaking my arm at patting myself on the back!). When I worked I used to do things in this fashion, but since retirement, boy - did I ever get lax (and love every minute of it). We've had another dreary gray day, and it's a bit on the chilly side, so what better night for a chili crockpot dinner? On to the card:

- image is Our Daily Bread Designs (Simple Things). The cling rubber stamped out wonderfully well using my stamp press.

- image stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy, a very pretty & versatile green

- C/bug plus Emboss folder Elegant Ellipse diecut the oval on green Recollection cardstock

- Reimbossed with C/B EF Kassie's Brocade, because I thought the card front looked too plain with just the Ellipse embossing.

- Trim...ribbon from stash, border trim cut from a border pattern paper in the stash, shamrock diecut with Impression Obsession Die; used versamark & Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, 3 coats for a nice effect

- sentiment was computer generated with a font downloaded from Dafonts, one of the Celtic themes, printed with green ink...diecut with S/binders Grommet Tags (#2), sponged with DI Peeled Paint

- green rhinestones.

Have a great evening, and as always, thanks for popping in for a visit. Always love to see where my visitors live. And thanks too, if you feel like taking time to leave a comment. Hugs & Happy Sunday.
