Well since we are on the subject here are a couple of cards I made. The first one was made with scraps from my supply. The shamrocks were cut from patterned paper. I added some green ribbon and a little shamrock button. The second one is a simple card. The swirls on the paper sparkle and I added a tag with an Irish saying that I downloaded from HP.

Well St. Patrick's Day ( I think Irish Day is much more PC ) will be here soon. My sisters and I have a little tradition of sending each other little gifts, something with an Irish theme, for St. Pat's Day. Susan started it and Barb and I just jumped right in. I think the first gift Susan sent me was this little card of buttons. I had just started scrapbooking and she thought I could use them for something. They are so pretty that I just can't part with them so I have never done anything with them. Someday....

It's my oldest daughter's birthday next week and I made this owl card. for her. She will be 48. Wow! that make me????? Only as old as I feel, which some days is pretty ##&$ old.
I used a Hero Arts stamp set. Stamped the images on paper, scanned them and made them bigger and then printed them on cardstock and cut them out. Since the inside of the card was too dark to print on I printed out the sentiment on cardstock and glued it in.

I'm sitting here smellng my Banana bread baking in the oven. I bake it with a crunchy pecan topping. Smells pretty yummy.
Here's a little card I made for Spring. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the cardstock and added some strips of Chloe's Closet paper and a little birdie from Michaels dollar stamps. Hope you like it.

We took a road trip to the Sears-Kay Ruins just past Carefree. The prehistoric people known as the Hohokam built a small village nearly a thousand years ago. Now only the rock foundations are left. On the way up to the area we stopped in Cave Creek at an arts and craft faire. On the way home we stuffed ourselves at Red Robin. Nice day!
The first picture is picture is a shot of the parking lot and the valley from the top of the hill. The second picture is of some of the ruins at the top of the hill.
