Top Of The Mornin To Ya xxx

sp

Moring lovely peeps and as it’s St Patrick’s Day on Saturday, the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is all about

A Bit o’ Green

Well as my Aunty Chrissie would say, sure to be sure :) 
OK maybe I exaggerated that bit  but she does say ‘turd’ instead of third which used to amuse us when we were kids no end!!!!  I just love the wonderful lilting Irish accent.

So however you say it, there is a whopper of a voucher up for grabs ….

…  and one lucky girlie will get to go on a spending spree ….

Simon Says Stamp

…. right here :)

This week the DT are showcasing  Hero Arts products and between us,  you will see the HUGE variety of products that Hero Arts has – in fact there are over 2100 products available at the store so if you get a sec, nip over and have a mooch.

So this is what I did.

I will have to confess something here. I bobbed over and got the challenge from our DT blog a few weeks ago and started making the card last week. It was only after it was finished that I realised that  although I had used Hero Arts products, there was not a scrap of green on it anywhere. 

Well what a dozy dimwit – yet another senior moment!!

So I had to make another one very quickly. You’ll notice that unusually for moi, there is no image but this was because I to wanted to focus on that fabulous flower ….

It was made from these sets …..

*Hero Arts Clear Stamps TO FROM PETALS 2011 CL526        *Hero Arts Clear Stamps MANY DOTS 2011 CL519

… which are To From Petals and  Many Dots - if you click the pics they will take you to the right place at the Simon Says Stamp store.

I stamped them straight onto some paper from the My Minds Eye Life of The Party 6 x 6 Paper Pack

*My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 LIFE OF THE PARTY Paper Pad LT1113

.. which is one of my fave MME paper packs, and I then added some Rangers Liquid Pearls in white.

The frame was made from the Florentine Message Border set …

*Hero Arts Clear Stamps FLORENTINE MESSAGE BORDER 2011 CL530

.. and I stamped frame one onto white card and another onto pink, then cut the middle out of the pink one and layered it onto the white one. There is a little dimension but you can’t really see it in the pics.

Other stuff I used ……

*E8-001 Spellbinders CLASSIC SCALLOP Edgeabilities Dies       *Magnolia LEAF & SWIRL Doohickeys Cutting Dies

… just for a change!!!!

So there we are all done with the card for today. 

I’ll be back tomorrow and if you get a sec, make a date not to miss it cos there will be something a bit special going on here, plus there’s another blast from the past as well :)

Have a fab day and also just to say once again a Happy St Patricks Day for Saturday to all our lovely Irish friends and in particular to my lovely Irish friend Joyce and Aunty Chrissie too  xxx

Huggiest of hugs to all xxxxx
