Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I can't believe my Spring Break is half way over and I've only posted once!  That will change for the rest of the's looking like I will have a little more crafting time! 

Here are 2 cards that I made for our St. Patrick's Day card swap over on the PTI forum. 
I used the same supplies on each - except for the polka dots on the first one - and just arranged the pieces differently.  

Well I'm off to get my hair cut and colored.  Then I'm going to have lunch with my aunt and browse through a furniture store or two.  We found out we are getting a pretty decent tax I'm going to convince my husband that the best way to spend it is by finishing the basement family room!!  Any tips on how to do this would be greatly appreciate as he wants to sell his 4-wheeler and use that money plus the refund to buy a newer, bigger, better 4-wheeler instead.

Hope you all have a fantastic St. Patrick's Day, I realized my shamrock shirt is still in the dirty clothes bin since I wore it to school last Friday.  I guess I'll have to do some laundry this afternoon so I can wear it tonight in case we go anywhere! 

Alright, enough rambling!!  Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:  (All Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Orange Zest, Vintage Cream, Bitty Box PP in Ripe Avacado and Spring Moss
Stamps: Luck of the Irish, Polka Dot Basics II (on the first card)
Ink: Distress Ink by Ranger in Peeled Paint
Other: Saddle Stitched Ribbon in New Leaf, 2" scalloped circle punch and cream thread.

Very cute card! I love how you used orange. Not really a traditional St Pattys day color, love it!

I like these both Anika...I think the bottom one is my fave though...not sure why!
Have fun getting your hair done and furniture shopping! I'm trying to convince my hubster that we need new furniture in our tv room, but he wants a new family vehicle! I'm pretty sure I'll win...*grin*

Very fun with the orange and green! Hope you're enjoying your spring break and getting lots of crafting done.

I'm sorry I don't have any words of wisdom for convincing your DH that you need furniture instead of a new 4-wheeler. Those husbands just don't understand. ;)
