St Patrick's Day

   St Patrick's Day is almost here!
I have lunch plans with some friends.
We used to go to a nearby Irish pub early morning before work on St Paddy's Day!
Meet up and drink coffee and have breakfast and chat til it was time to go to work!
the few times that the attempts were made to go out in the evening were thwarted by huge crowds.
Couldn't get near the bar much less get any one to wait on us.
Seems every one is Irish on March 17th.
OR at least desperately needing to celebrate with us Irishmen.
OR maybe it was an excuse to go out and drink green beer!!!
Annie is having us over to her place...hope she's serving something green!!!!

Daisy Doodles challenge is GREEN.
Grab a Daisy Doodles image and add some green whatever and join us for the challenge.
You have two weeks to get a creation up and posted.
The shamrock that I used is from a set called...WAIT.....
THE LUCK OF THE IRISH
It comes with 3 images and shamrock paper in black or green.
I printed out the green paper, slid it back into the printer and printed the shamrock right over 
the green shamrock paper.
printed out another shamrock, but larger this time. Cut it out and ran it Through my brand spanking new CB folder, Victoria.  On the shamrock I sponged Gold Encore ink over that embossing. Sponged some Tea Dye distressed ink over the embossing on the card base after using the Victoria and Tim Holtz's Notebook EF.
If I don't count the time it took to get the printing done and all the cutting....
this was a really quick card! for those of you that might be interested
this card measures 5" x 5 1/2 ".
