The Wearin' Of the Green!
Pat asked us to create cards or projects using green this week. No, it doesn't have to be a St. Patrick's Day card unless you want to it to be!
I've used "Heidi". Isn't she cute?! I can almost hear yodeling!
She's part of Mo's series of literary characters that includes, among others, Ann of Green Gables, Grimm's Red Riding Hood, images from A Christmas Carol , and The Wizard of Oz characters.
I used the little church as a prop because it reminds me of the little mountain church that Heidi and her grandfather attended.

St. Paddy Bear
Here's a St. Patrick's Day card I made for a customer of my DIL's store for a little girl whose birthday is on March 17th.
The sweet little Irish bear is from Sassy Cheryl.
I made the little posy by gathering some ruffled lace into a circle, threading the stem of a tiny rose through the center of a Prima daisy, then trough the center of the lace. I tied some narrow satin ribbon into a bow around the stem, and threaded the stem through the card front, securing it on the back with some Sookwang tacky tape. I made the decorative pin by threading tiny pearls and a butterfly bead onto a pearl flower-headed pin and securing it all with Superglue. I glued a small pearl bead onto the point for safety.
