Lucky Birthday

This is my second post today; please scroll down for The Play Date Cafe post.

I share my birthday (St. Patrick's Day, March 17th) with a stamping buddy named Heather.  I made a very green card for her and need to pop it in the mail so it might reach her in time (she lives in another country).


Luckily (get it?), this happens to fit a challenge I just discovered called DYSU.  Their current challenge:  'Go Green'.  It could be that you've upcycled/recycled something, or used green stuff on your creation.




The shamrock was created with new-to-me Close To My Heart stamps, So Lucky.  My friend recently gave the set to me, and I love it!  You can make the cutest shamrocks with it.

An early Happy Birthday, Colleen -- I share the same birth date, though I'm sure mine came first. :-D I remember now discovering last year that we celebrate our birthdays on the same wonderful Irish holiday but had forgotten that. In any case, love the card and aren't we March people special? :-D Hugz.

Loving the different patterns on the shamrock leaves and the touch of doily peeking out. Can't believe I know three people with the same birthday!! Better get to the post office and get the cards sent!

Of course I love your card! That reminds me I gotta get busy and make mine too. It is creeping up way too fast! All your posts are just wearing me out. Henry, the basset, has been invited to join the hound rescue league "waddle" and dress up in green for the St.Patrick's Day parade in Des Moines. I don't think we will participate. I need to share some of their photos of previous wearin' of de green waddle they have done. Happy birthday to us early!
