If YOU had a Friend..

You would consider yourself lucky, right?

A friend that makes sadness less sad, pain less painful, joy more joyful? :)

Maybe that's what the luck of the Irish is all about. Maybe the Irish are a friendly and befriended people. A person could do worse than friendly and befriended, yes?

I think so, anyway. So I made a card about it. :)

I made this card with the same technique I used on the blue dog a few posts back. First, I stamped them in Kiwi Kiss, after stamping off once. Then I colored the whole thing with colored pencils, first a nice lime green, and then shading with a darker green. Here's what it looks like before blending with odorless mineral spirits. Pretty easy and quick.

But after it's blended, it becomes this nice sunny green shamrock that exactly matches Green Galore. The card base is textured Basic Grey, and the bigger four leaf clover I made with the SAB set - Polka Dot Punches. This is the set we're featuring in our camp this weekend. (If you haven't signed up yet and want to, please email me.) I stamped the hearts in Basic Grey and then punched them out with my Full Heart punch.The greeting and the shamrock are from Pinch Proof. Cute.

So I wanted to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day today. And a little Irish blessing from a little Irish girl for your Tuesday, St. Patty's Day, 2009. May YOU find a friend that makes sadness less sad, pain less painful, joy more joyful. Wealth, is what that is. :)
