Happy St. Patricks Day Card

Boy! Oh boy! Did it ever feel good to get back into my scrap booking room last night and create a card. We had been in Las Vegas for the last week or so, just to get away from the snow for a few days and a bit of rest and relaxation. Just before we left for Vegas I decided to treat myself to the new Elmo and Friends Holiday cartridge, I was so excited when we got home and saw that it had arrived. It is just filled with so many great cuts for all different occasions. So after checking some of my favorite blogs to see what challenges are going on, I decided to make a St. Patricks Day Card.

This is a 5X5 card using Elmo 9 for the cuts. Isn't he just so cute?
All the papers are from my scraps. I added a couple of pop up dots for dimension, a little bit of stickles on the shamrock on his hat and some real glittered ribbon.
Here is a list of the challenges I will be linking the card up to.
Fantabulous Cricut- Use a shamrock or the colour green Challenge
Whimsical Designs- Going green Challenge, use green in your project.
Scrappy Mom Stamps- St. Patricks Day card
Creative Cutting Room- St. Patrick Day card.
Go Fish Challenge Blog- Photo inspiration St Patricks Day card.
Krafty Girls- St Patricks project.
As always my crafty friends, thanks for stopping bye and leaving me some love. I really have missed checking up on you in the last week and promise once I catch up on a bit of sleep....I will be back!

Jenny, This is such a cute card!! I think after seeing this, i just might have to get it!!! Thank's for the comment on my blog yesterday. I also wanted to tell you that I am going to be starting a group of scrappers that want to do a swap, not your average swap, this will be a swap of scrappers that want to swap things that are gently used, or swap things that we have bought because we needed 1 thing, and we have no idea what to do with the other 3 that came in the pack. I am still figuring how to set it up, but I will let you know when I do. If you have any ideas just email me. My email is on my blog! Karen♥

Karen said...
