Shamrock Blessings

Hey Stampers!  I hope your week is off to a better start than mine.  My washer broke on Sunday.  Well, it died.... it's been on the way out for awhile.. taking forever to dry things because the washer wasn't spinning them enough.  SO.. I was already behind, now I'm just buried!  My goal this week is to get all the laundry done, so the delivery man can bring me a new one on Friday.  Thank goodness my Mom AND my Grandma live next door!  I'm borrow both their washers!  Wish me luck!

Speaking of luck... I love this set called Shamrock Blessings.  The inside says, "I'm so lucky you picked me to be your friend." It's the Crafty Sparkles that makes this card SHAZAM.  I added Sugar Sparkles to the shamrock border, the dandelions and the little bug.  I used my Copic air compressor to add a nice "glow" around the image.  I got a cool new circle paper piercing template down at Memories of Time, and used my new Tim Holtz poker to pierce the edges.  It's layered on a Blossom Nestie die by Spellbinders.  I also used my EK Success border punch on the inside... and OH... I was feeling SO sorry for myself today, that while at MOT, I bought THREE more new ones!  I can't wait to use them!  Yah, I know, drop a load for a new washer, then buy three more punches... go figure.  It didn't make sense to me either... but it didn't stop me!

Have you had a chance to check out the two challenges going on right now?  Click here to play along at The Lounge, and HERE to play along over at MOT.  Can't wait to see what you make!!

Back to the laundry I go..... see ya soon!
