Happy St. Partrick's and Pictures of my Shopping Spree!

Good Morning and Happy Monday! It's
time for another post for Joys Life Design Team
 As some of you might know Hubby and I have been on vacation for the last month in Arizona and we just arrived home on Friday.
Even though there is no time difference I still came home dead dog tired and the I had to throw this card together real quick so I would have a post for today. LOL!

When we were in Arizona I picked up 8 new cartridges (shame on me) so I had a heck of a time deciding just which new cartridge I would use. I finally decided on the Teddy Bear Cartridge and the card base was purchased from the Silhouette store.
I actually cut the card out twice using a pretty shade of green glitter paper for the front and a contrast green for the inside of the card.

I cut my darling little bear at 4 inches and put it on pop dots.


I used the Happy St. Patrick's sentiment from Joys Life Holiday Occasions Stamps.
I love this set of stamps because there is one for every Occasions which is great for your card making.
I will be entering this card in this weeks callenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2: use a shamrock 
and Craftin Desert Diva Link up party!  
I am also going to link this card up to My Crafting Channel Teddy Bear Series! This is the 10th bear on The Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge.with this being said there is not much more I can say about the card but I do want to share with you the fun I had shopping at all the cool stores in the USA that we do not have in Canada! 


The first thing I am going to do is put all my new goodies away. 
I have taken a couple of pictures to show you how sick I am when it comes to shopping for my scrapbooking. 


Yes....I am a hoarder when it comes to my hobbies!
Have a great week!
