Happy St. Patty's Day!

March 17, 2009

Well, I posted my St. Patrick's Day themed cards on Sunday, but thought I would still give my well wishes today! And, I do have a couple other cards to share with you! First up is a card I did for Kazan's sketch #22 this week at 2 Sketches 4 U. A couple we know just had a baby boy, and so this is to go with the gift we got them. I also reached pretty deep into my American Crafts stash on this one...pretty old paper, but still pretty great paper in my book!

So- are you ready for American Idol tonight??? I sure am..this is the first season in a long time that has kept my attention. Tonight is Idol gone country night...and it will be interesting to see how they all do with country music. Michael and Kris will be right at home. I think that Danny, Matt, Allison & Alexis (as long as she doesn't over do it, and isn't so vampy this week) all have the potential to do an amazing job. Adam could prove himself to me a bit if he tones it down, and maybe shows a softer, less showbiz side of him. But, he does have the potential to totally over do it as well. He is loved though...so no matter what, we know he will be safe next week. I think the rest of them have a high potential of failure on this one, unfortunately. They just don't seem versatile enough to pull off country. But- they could prove me wrong...we will just have to wait and see tonight!

Well, I better get going for now. Consider yourself pinched if you aren't wearing green today! :)

Until later,


  1. These are great Leah! I really love the little cloud on the first one.

  2. I just love the little cloud and stitching on the top one and the clock on the second.

    You do beautiful work.

  3. Love both of your cards, the first one looks fab with that little cloud and the stitching. I love the second one with the clock and the combination of papers you've used. Great take on the sketches. I've pinched myself too, never even thought to wear green today, despite my Mum being Irish. Umm, shame on me!

  4. Love both of your cards Lea. I especially love the added touch of the moon & stars....such a great idea. I love when people use "older" stuff. I have those bling words & clocks....maybe I need to pull them out too:)

  5. Great cards! Especially the first one looks so adorable - boy cards are so hard to do, aren't they?
