Slainte!

If you're looking for the Waltzing Mouse Blog Hop...you're at the right place!





As excited as I am to be participating in the Hop, I'm also a wee bit nervous! I had a great time working with Claire's Irish Blessings stamp set. Those little shamrocks are so adorable and the sentiments are wonderful. I chose to make an easel card for the Hop, I hope you like it!

The card in it's closed position. I used the tiny shamrock to randomly stamp on my light green card stock.




Here it is, in it's open position, revealing the Irish Blessing that is embossed in gold. I used the little square motif stamp to create the 'stopper' for the easel. Sadly, the photo doesn't show the amazing sparkle on the card, from the blast of shimmer spray it received.


I am anxious to see what everyone else is sharing. If you would like to Hop along with us, you will need to visit Claire for further instruction.



Thank you for popping in. If you'd like to vist my blog's home page, click HERE.

Your card is a stunner -- even the shimmer, which I CAN see when I click to enlarge -- was thinking how it won't show up on mine either when I actually use the 2 I just bought -- kinda sad! I can see it on your darling button too!
Enjoyed your Irish tunes TOO!!!

Your St. Patty's card is beautiful and even more so in real life! I want to thank you for thinking about me and making my day specail, your act of kindness will not be forgotten my friend:)
I think your idea of making shamrocks with heart shaped dies was very creative,what type of dye did you use to make your shamrocks? I have the scalloped Nesties but my hearts seem to be a lot larger.
At any rate, have a beautiful weekend and thank you so much for the beautiful card!
Big Hugs
