Some St. Patrick's Day fun schtuff!!!!!!

You know....St. Patrick's Day is sneaking right up on us, so here are a couple of little things to get you in the mood!!

First up is this card.
I'm sorry, but I love how this card turned out and I'm gonna take a minute to show myself some love!!! I started out with 3 shades of WorldWin ColorMates cardstock. Added some white and pulled out my WestTrim green wire to play with. I have always loved writing with wire!!! For me, it's fun! The longest word I ever attempted was "Responsibility" and it turned out great! (hmm...I may have to find that page in Logan's album and photograph it to put up on the blog!! But, I digress....)

Anyway, making that shamrock (or is it a clover? and what's the difference, anyway?! I guess it's a clover, because it's a 4-leaf clover...... But, then, what is a shamrock?!)

Making that shamrock, was much harder than any word I've written with wire. It was a bit tricky to get it to look right between the leaves and the center...but I was finally able to get it to the way I liked it, albeit it took me two tries!! I added the Making Memories, Me.

Simple and coordinated....just the way I like it! :)

The second thing I made was a variation of what I did 2 years ago. I made a zillion of a treat bag similar to this and used Andes mints (for their spectacular green wrappers) and handed these out to teachers, friends, and our pediatrician and his office workers! They loved them!!! And I loved them, too!

Try throwing together some of these treat bags!

They are fun and YUMMY!!!! (and easy!)
