Luck of the Irish - Cardz TV Stamps

Happy Friday everyone!  It is challenge day over at Cardz TV!  I love these days, because I get to play with Mary's amazing stamps - I can always find the perfect sentiment, not matter the challenge!  Today Mary challenged us to create a St Patrick's Day project featuring SHAMROCKS or a LEPRECHAUN.  Here is what I came up with:



Now, is that not the cutest leprechaun EVER??  I can not express how much I love the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge!  I think it is such a cute cartridge, and it make me really happy to make projects with it.  I cut this cutie and all his pieces at 3 1/2 inches.  The card stick is all from Michaels and the patterned paper is VERY old creative Memories from my stash.  I put some gold Stickles on the the gold in his pot, but now that I look at it, I think I may put another layer or two on - it's not quite blingy enough.  The little back gems are from the Dollorama.  I decided to stamp the sentiment on a tag - the punch along with it's shadow are  from Stampin Up.  The perfect sentiment is from Cardz TV's "It's All About You" set. It's one of my favorites, and you can find your own HERE.


Our challenge starts today, and ends Thursday March 7th at noon EST.  The winner will gets a set of Cardz TV stamps of their very own.  Hop on over to Cardz TV, see what all my talented DT sisters came up with to inspire you, and play along with us.  One lucky person will win a set of Cardz TV Stamps of their very own.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

LOL--do you think we should start consulting before creating??? We're starting to look redundant, huh. Your card sure turned out fantastic. Darn, why didn't I think to add the Stickles to my pot of gold? (Hmmm, probably cuz I hate waiting for it to dry.).
Hugs, Jeri
