Kiss Me!

I can't believe that it is March already, the last 2 months have flown by. The great thing about March is that it is national craft month, so this month everyone is super busy in their craft spaces.

Also in March is St Patrick's Day... Maybe I'll be lucky and find a pot full of chocolate covered coins! A girl can dream..right??

So I thought that I would start off this month by entering the Luck Of The Irish Challenge #25 over at Cardz TV.

The challenge is to make a card, layout or craft project using hand stamped, digital stamped or electronically cut Shamrocks or Leprechauns.

Each week the Cricut Craft Room has a cartridge that you can try out for FREE for a week . Lucky me this week the Cut It Free For A Week cartridge was Spring Holiday Cards.

So I decided to make this fun Shamrock Banner.

I opened the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge and used the Shamrock cut but hid the face features on it, so I was left with just the Shamrock. I cut them out of dark and light green cardstock and attached green eyelets to each side of the Shamrocks with my Crop A Dile.

I had to add some green brads to the lighter green Shamrocks as I didn't have enough eyelets. I strung orange ribbon from my stash through the eyelets to hold it all together.

Then using the Storybook cartridge I cut out all my letters along with its shadow for each.

I used the October 31 cartridge to cut out 2 cauldrons and cut off the feet and stir stick that was on top. Some gold Stickles and a few gold rhinestones and we have a pot of gold.

Hope you find a pot of gold(or in my dreams ...chocolate covered coins) this St Patrick's Day. Luck of the Irish to ya!
