March Road Trip & "Green" Card
No, not the Green Card that keeps you from being an illegal alien...it's the "Green" card that I made for Anary's challenge blog! A St. Patty's Day card. It says "Aye, and may the luck o' the Irish be with you!" I used a Tilda that is really a Christmas Tilda but I colored her apron green and put shamrocks in her pigtails and have her holding a string of shamrocks. Or are they 4-leaf clovers? Does someone out there know the difference?
I sewed a piece of fabric across the card which I had first stamped with green ink so it would match the other colors better. The light green behind Tilda is embossed with the flower folder from Cuttlebug. Tilda is colored with colored pencils...do you like her red hair? She's got a bit o' the Irish in her, don't ya know.
And a Happy St. Patty's Day to you all!
Hey, I just got back here to snow-country from "down south" where it is, yes, WARM! Hubby and I took a spur-of-the-moment road trip.
The destination was Gulf Shores but we meandered through Indiana, Kentucky (went to the Creation Museum...so cool!), Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, and then to Gulf Shores, AL for a few days.
We got to see our very first Mardi Gras parade! Came home with a ton of bead necklaces and Moon Pies! (NO flashing involved! Eeewwww!)
I ate several kinds of "Southern" foods on this trip: deep fried okra, greens with pork, sweet potatoe fluff, fried green tomatoes, black-eyed peas. I think I ate several kinds of EVERYTHING! I know I gained weight on this trip. Good thing spring is just around the corner so I can get outside and get busy with my flower gardens soon.
That was just a little depressing coming back up north watching the trees have less and less buds and greenery on them...and more and more snow on the ground! Oh well, we had a great trip and feels so good to be home again...and back in my craft room!!
