Week Seventeen: St Patrick's Day

This coming Sunday is the 17th of March, which means two things in my world: St Patrick's Day and my husband's 28th birthday! As much as he likes my cards and admires my creative talents, he's not really the type to want an elaborately hand crafted card for his birthday (not many men are in my experience), so I thought I'd make one about St Patrick's Day instead.

I've made it a 'Good Luck' card, because not many people that I know give out cards for St Pat's, but the four leafed clover is a symbol for luck, so I thought that would work in nicely.

I went for the all green look of course, and it looks very nice now that it's done, but I got a bit sick of staring at that one shade of green! I ran out too actually. But I made a big order to my quilling supplier last week and it arrived yesterday, 18 different shades of loveliness (she threw in a couple of freebies for me too!) including a new batch of this green, so future projects won't miss out.

I like that this happens to be the 17th  week's post for a special day on the 17th, it adds to the lucky feel.

 Next week we'll be kicking off Easter preparations (I can't believe it's Easter already, it feels like Christmas was only a month ago to me), with a sweet widdle 3D Bunny I've made, so stay tuned.

Top o' the mornin' to ya!


ps - here's a look at that quilling order I mentioned - it's a lovely selection from my favourite paper supplier :) I'm looking forward to playing with all of them. If you are an Australian quiller you might want to check them out, great prices http://www.quilling.com.au/
