Leprechauns!!

Oh Happy Monday everyone! Did ya have a good weekend? I sure did--I got a lot of projects completed, visited with friends (waving hi to Marti, Amy & Tiffaney) and went to the movies with the family! We went to see "Race To Witch Mountain" which was my absolute favorite Disney movie & books when I was younger. But I will tell you that you should think twice about taking children under ten, because it is violent and very intense. I was sitting on the edge of my seat & jumping the whole time--very, very intense for sure! Not like the old movie at all--but I did really like it, it was very good! Just not the type of movie I would recommend for younger kids :o)

I've only got one project to share today (gasp, lol)---I was supposed to be sharing a Whiff of Joy preview for you but I didn't get my pictures taken in time :o( So I'll share a peek with ya tomorrow for sure! And if you didn't check out my Easter Blog Hop Projects yesterday, make sure and scroll down to the next post to see :o)

This is my ode to St. Patty's Day using one of the cute Alva images from Magnolia-licious! Of course for this project she is really a lil' leprechaun ok--hee hee! She's such a fun stamp cuz' you can color her & use her for any holiday project--I love her!! I picked up this fun green mug from the $1 Spot at Target a few weeks ago, knowing that it would make an awesome gift holder! I wrapped it with dp from SU, ribbons from PTI and filled with green Jellybelly's of all flavors--YUM! This fun gift is going to a good friend of mine, who just might be a lil' Irish :o)

A close-up to show you her fun red hair and the Angel Wingz Shimmerz I used on her to make her super sparkly!

And a close-up of the sentiment which is from Studio G (from Marti's store)--Studio G has such great sentiments in each set and since they're only $1 its a great deal all around! I stamped over the sentiment lightly with a swirl from the same set & inked the edges!

Hope ya liked it! I'll be back tomorrow with a long post for ya--I've got a St. Patty's Day project for ya tomorrow, a Whiff of Joy sneak peek and a Greeting Farm project too!

hugz,

Suzanne
