Pear Tree Designs - Challenge 40

Hi everyone,

Looks like the weather is getting nicer! Yay!! Not quite flipflop weather yet, but we are getting nearer and I just can't wait! I loooove my flipflops!

Well,  Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog latest challenge is up and running and this week we would like you to produce a card or project to do with St Patricks Day!

Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is a religious holiday celebrated internationally on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland. It originated as a Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 17th century. It has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Irish culture.

Here is my DT card for this week:

I decided green would be a rather good colour to go with again this week!  I have used my craft robo to cut out 'St Patrick's Day' and it took me a fair amount of time to pick the letters out of the sheet they were cut from, but eventually I managed it!!  I also had some lucky clovers hanging around, and I know traditionally it's a 3 leaf clover, but I don't think it's a major issue!  I embossed these so that they curled a bit and then covered them is some lush green glitter to make it sparkle.

This week we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts and they are giving the lucky winner a range of Liquid Pearls worth £10!  Please head over to Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog for more information and to post your lovely crafty creations!

Entries need to be in by 4pm on Sunday!  I hope we have more than 4 enteries this week peeps!!!

Have a good week, and lets hope the sun stays with us for more than one day!!
