Seeing Shamrocks Blog Hop

It is time for another Angel Company Blog Hop! This month we are celebrating one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick's Day. I have always been fascinated with Ireland, since I was a very little girl I wanted to be Irish. Luckily for me, I fell in love with a really wonderful guy with an Irish name that I now share. So I can sort of claim being Irish, at least in name. St. Patty's Day is also a favorite, because it is my daughters favorite of all holidays, it always has been. Every year she builds a leprechaun trap, and there is a lot of excitement and fun!
For this card I used a set called "Thanksgiving Sweeties", to create a cute little leprechaun girl. I masked the sunflower she was holding and added a punched shamrock that I colored with copic markers and a white gel pen. Sentiment is from "Tag Tidbits"
 This little guy is from the same set, I couldn't figure out how to mask his gun and still have him look alright, so I turned the gun into a 'shamrock shooter', for a blast of good luck! Sentiment and shamrocks are from "Cheers to you". 

I thought I would end with this little guy. A couple times a month I do an art project in my son's class, today we made these leprechauns, too much fun! I hope that you will follow the blog hop, and check out all the other fun ideas for St. Patrick's Day. Or maybe you feel inspired and want to join in the fun!?
Have a great weekend!
