Woohoo, we have made it to another Friday! Some weeks feel so long that I am just not sure if Friday will ever come and then it sneaks up on me at times too. It does not even feel like March to me. I know the calendar can be pretty convincing but when it's still below 0 most mornings and the bitter cold wind blows I need the help of my BFF calling and trying to convince me her trees are budding already (they are not, she is also buried under a foot of snow still) to get my hopes up that spring really will come!
And with the promise of spring, I have a St. Patrick's Day(ish) card to share!
I made the background using the script from Unity's My Dear in an Antique Linen distress ink on cream cardstock. The sentiment and clover-like vines are from Unity's February 2013 KOTM and stamped in a bright grassy green. The trim is from Webster's Pages.
I also have a quick bonus card to share today because yesterday was my MIL's birthday and I didn't have a card made and we're celebrating with her this weekend!
I used the pretty Wish With Your Heart sentiment kit from Unity and clear embossed it onto watercolor paper. Originally I had an idea to use light pastel watercolors around it but you just couldn't see the sentiment or little dandelion puffs very well so I had to go BRIGHT to cover up the light colors and used my Dylusion ink sprays and then it showed up quite well! A bit more 'in your face' than I had imagined but thankfully she likes lots of color.
I am linking up with the wonderful and FUN Friends With Flair on the Unity blog today, check it out for some amazing inspiration!
Have a fun and crafty weekend!
