Happy St. Paddy's Day & a swap card!!

I am like 1/8th Irish so that counts right? But isn't everyone Irish on St. Paddy's day?? I thought I would show you a card that I made at my Upline (What's an upline you ask??? She is the person who I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator under, and if you were to join my team like Cindy and Barb have, I would be yours!), Caroline LeBel's at our Canadians, Ink! team meeting this month. Since, today is really the only day it is appropriate. The clover is actually 3 hearts stamped using the FREE Sale-a-bration set Polka Dot punches and is then punched out with the Full Heart punch. Oh how I love sets that coordinate with punches! The word Lucky is actually cut out from the image that is acheived when you roll out the "Pinch Me" Jumbo Wheel. And then it has Dazzling Diamond glitter on it! Oh, and the paper is the FREE Sale-a-bration Designer Paper, Darling Dots. Don't forget that you only have a few weeks left to take advantage of Sale-a-bration!!! The promotion ends on March 31st.

But since I am not actually going out to celebrate the day, and since I rarely drink Beer anymore, and most certainly not green beer, I thought you might want to see another card that has no green on it too.

This past weekend Stampin' Up! held the Regionals in London, Ontario. I unfortunately did not go, but I made sure to make up a bunch of swap cards (What's a swap you ask? When Stampin' Up! Demonstrator's get together they swap card fronts so that they have lots of ideas to share with you, our customers!) that Caroline offered to swap on my behalf. I picked up my swaps today and I must say there are some very talented Stampers in the area! So, I thought I would show you the card that I had swapped this weekend. I hope that everyone who got one liked it!

Blair... I received one of your cards at Regional. It was one of my favourites and I am definitely going to use the layout. I have been posting my favs on my blog, but had to stop to finish off some Baptism invites - but yours is going up. I loved it. It is too bad you couldn't make it. There were some great ideas and WOW's.

I like the tree stamped in the pink. It's different.
