My Pot 'O Gold

Top of the mornin' to ya my crafty friends! The ides of March are almost upon us as is St. Patty's day. This is a big holiday here in the Hudson Valley as there is a high population of Irish here. Our main street in town has a thick green stripe down the middle and this weekend was the big parade and Shamrock Run. Big doings in this little town! I have never made a card for the occasion but thought I might give it a try and enter some challenges. I love shaped cards so using my Gypsy I made a Shamrock shaped card with a rainbow and what else but a Pot 'O Gold! The rainbow, cloud and pot of gold is mounted on a Action Wobble to bring it to life! LOVE those Action Wobbles!!

Tomorrow is my "Miracle" Moms 83rd Birthday! If you don't know why she is a miracle read my last post!
Happy Birthday Mom-I  {{{{Heart}}} love you & hope you are on the mend!
Also please keep Emma (My Creative Time) & her family in your thoughts in prayers. Her husband has been ill and currently is without a diagnosis. And please let's not forget those in Japan. I was in a 6.8 earthquake-the Sylmar Quake in Los Angeles, 2/1971. To this day if something shakes my house I panic. That was minuscule in comparison to the 8.8 quake in Japan. I can't even imagine the horror those poor people are living....I can't even imagine.

On a brighter note here are the challenges entered:
My Creative Time-Throwback Thursday-Episode 175
Shelly's Images Blog- Something Green
Stamping Vacation-Name your own challenge & mine will be something green,something that moves and not your typical card shape!
 More Than Favors-Wacky Wednesday Challenge #30-St. Patrick's Day.

Blessings to Mom, Emma & Hubby & the people of Japan
