Luck O' The Irish...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I am of Irish heritage, so this has always been a big day in my family.  We will be off to my parent's house to celebrate with corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, green treats, and a shot of Irish whiskey in remembrance of my grandfather.  I made this card for mom and dad with two sets. The shamrocks are from Kitchen Sink Stamps and the sentiment is from Flourishes.  I added some green baker's twine, too!

The weather here in Ohio has been fabulous! We spend yesterday evening outside with neighbors and had a backyard campfire with S'mores for the kids.  I love having all of my windows open, and the smell of fresh cut grass. Hmmmmmm....I am ready for spring.

I had talked about redecorating our bedroom.  Tomorrow I will make the final decision on paint and get started.  Next, will be the master bathroom and then on to the kitchen.  Our house is only 8 years old, but I think a new tile floor, and granite countertops will make our kitchen shine!  I am so over the linoleum that looks like tile, that my boys have beat to death!!!  I also need to do some major reorganizing when it comes to my cabinets.  I think I just need to get rid of a bunch of stuff that doesn't get used on a regular basis, or at least put those serving pieces in storage, so that I have them when needed. They definitely do not need to be taking up space anymore!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

So glad that you were able to use the stamps! This card is CAS perfection!

I'm trying to get motivated on doing some painting (or maybe picking the color for my hubby to paint?!) I'd love to see pictures!
