Good morning all. I hope that you all had a wonderful start to your week. We had a great day at work and it went so fast. I just love those kinds of days. :O)
I know that it isn't St. Patrick's Day yet, but I am making some more cards for my friend's Granddaughter. I just think that it is so sweet of her. I can remember when my Grandpa sent my Sister and I a school box full of licorice and a set of Rosary beads each. That was in 1972 and I still have such fond memories of it. My Grandpa has been gone for over 39 years now, but I still have the Rosary safely tucked away.
Sorry, I didn't mean to go down that road, but I just think that it is awesome for her to send her only Granddaughter so much love in the mail. I mean who doesn't LOVE to get a package in the mail? heehee
Ok, do you remember I mentioned I had something great to share with you all. Well, my friend and I are going out of town of Saturday to shop at Michael's, Joannes and Hobby Lobby. I have never ever been in a Hobby Lobby and I am sooooo excited. You would think that I was going to Disney Land. lol... Anyway, I have been saving up and I can not wait to get to see all those scrapbooking and crafting goodies. I miss having a local scrapbook store. I shop online, but it just isn't the same. I am so, so excited. I will be counting the days. If you know how to get the coupons that everyone is always talking about can you let me know how? Thanks in advance.
Anyway, as I was saying this is a card for my friend and I wanted to use Fleur Anya for it as I think she has the sweetest face. I also got a surprise package in the mail on Saturday. Thank you so much Shani. Luckily it had a Studio G stamp set in it that was for of all things St. Patty's Day. I stamped the four leaf clovers and colored them in so that they could be a part of her headband. I think the whole thing worked out so well. I also used the new Beaded Ovals from Spellbinders and decided to thread the ribbon through it.
Ok guys, gotta run.... Have a super Tuesday. New Glee tonight! Yay....Best night of the whole week right? heehee
Talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

Sounds like you have a fun trip lined up! Years ago when there was still three different scrappy stores in Spokane me and my friends would make the trip over once a year and make a day of visiting each one as well as the Michaels and JoAnns...those were good times! Hope you find lots of goodies!
And this card today turned out fantastic! Fleur makes for the perfect Irish lass with your genius addition of those shamrocks to her headband and those kickin' boots! :)

What a brilliant idea to make her up for St Patricks day! You have to go online and sign up at the stores to receive their email sales flyers. If I have any I will forward them onto you.
