I come from a long line of Irish....like many in the USA. My Great Great Grandparents migrated here from Ireland, they were the O'Gradys when they got here. Soon after, they became the Bradys, and have been since. This card is for my Mom's Mom, who was one of those Bradys. Every year I HAVE to make her a St. Patrick's Day card, or it breaks her heart...LOL! A while back I saw this Voila chef made up as a SPD card, so I had to try it. His hat and jacket are paper pieced, and the rest of him is colored with markers. For his tray, I used a couple of puffy glittered shamrock stickers, and the sentiment is on a 3D sticker. The stamp and PP are from Stampin' Up.
Well, I have a few other things going, so hopefully I can get back to the desk and play more. I hurt my knee Wednesday, and after 4 hours in the ER yesterday, they diagnosed a probable tear in te cartiledge. I see an Orthopedic Surgeon on Wednesday. I am in a knee brace and it is SO hard to get under the table to stamp...LOL! Oh well, I will do what I can...
Have a great weekend...see you soon!

For the next card, we were to use 3D Stickers of some sort. I bought some really gorgeous flowers, but I was having a hard time deciding how I wanted to lay them out on the card. I am NOT good with stickers! I have had these Red Hat Society Stickers for quite a while, and thought, what the hey, I will just use those! I love how they coordinate with the PP!
Well, it is 10 p.m. and I have to work in the morning, so off to bed I go. Have a week! See you soon!

I am a 47 year-old Mom of one Wonderful 17 year-old daugher. We moved from Iowa to Arkansas 2 years ago in March, and I love it here! I work for the High School here in Bentonville ( the hometown of Wal-Mart) in the cafeteria...yes, I feed 1200 teenagers lunch everyday. Hard work, but it pays for the goodies...LOL! I have 2 little Chihuahua fur babies who I also cook for daily. Hehehe~
I have been stamping for about 10 years...well, that was when I bought my first stamp. I have been FAITHFULLY stamping for about 4 years now, and I LOVE IT! Since I have found blogging, I have learned SO much...I don't think I will EVER know it all! I love layers and simplicity. Although my favorite colors are Lavendar and Yellow, I tend to use alot of Pink...go figure. Stampin' Up has been my LONGTIME favorite stamp company, but I now love ALL stamps and have started collecting unmounteds, too. I swore I would never do that, but....
I can't wait to meet everyone....After I post everyone's link, I am gonna go check out all the wonderful new blogs in my world! Have a wonderful weekend...
