How Lucky I Am....

I don't have one ounce of Irish in me, but I think I have become a wee bit Irish by association!  See, I live on the south side of Chicago.....where practically everyone is Irish! ;)  
Some of the teachers had a corn beef and cabbage cook off on Wednesday.  Yum!
I have my green on, and am wearing my four- leaf clover necklace today.  
I think I could use the luck'O' the Irish! ;)
I have a St. Patrick's Day Card for you that was created using my Cricut.  I added gold Flower Soft to emulate my pot of gold. Such cool stuff to work with! I added a bit of seam binding, a black button, and a computer generated sentiment. 
I have been playing my new lens and am in love with it!  I just can't seem to stop taking pictures.  
So I bug my pets.......
They seem to be pretty used to a camera being in their faces most of the time! : D
I will be back on the "real" St. Patrick's Day to share one more holiday project with you!
I am off to see a play tonight with my hubby, Jekyll and Hyde. I am looking forward to getting away for a few hours with him.
Have a great Friday!!

Easter Wishes

Good morning my friends!  It has been another busy week here and sometimes I feel like I am just barely keeping my head above water!  I love a full busy life, but sometimes it just starts to get the better of me.  I need to remind myself to take a deep breath and relax a bit.  Very hard for this Type A personality! ;)
I do have an Easter card that I had created for the Cricut Circle magazine last year.  You know how some cards just make you feel good?  Like it turned out as perfect as you had hoped it would?  This was one of those cards.  It was so deliciously vintage.....with my absolute favorite colors.
With a dose of glitter.
And a bit of lace.
A soft pink ribbon, and a delicate flower.....
A piece of doily.....a bit of twine....and a couple of pearls. 
This card just simply made me happy.
Have a wonderful day my friends!
Thank you for stopping by to visit!

Easter Wishes

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I did lots of chasing and such.  Cortney went to the doctor for her terrible cough and the doc put her on antibiotics. On Sunday I had a baby shower for a good friend of mine.  It all flew by a little too quickly for my taste!  And now it's Monday. Already. 
I have an Easter card to share with you using my Cricut and Teresa Collin's Easter images.  
I used lots of texture in this card with embossing, glitter, and dimension using foam circles. 
The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. I tried to make it look like a garden sign.  ;) 
I am off to start my week!!
Have a great day!
