St. Paddy’s Day Blog Hop 3/17 @ 11:30pm to 3/19 @ 12:00am Eastern ST

Welcome to St. Paddy’s Day Blog Hop 3/17 @ 11:30pm to 3/19 @ 12:00am Eastern ST!  I was invited to be in this hop by my friend Dee.  This is my second St. Patricks hop and my 2nd St. Patricks day card ever….
If you’re following along, you should have come here from faith http://faithfulecreations.wordpress.com/.  If you were just visiting my blog, be sure to grab your favorite drink & settle in the hop!  
If this is your first stop, you’ll want to go back to denise http://deesdesignsfrommyheart.blogspot.com/ to start at the beginning…

Since I don’t typically do St. Patricks Day cards, I don’t really have any supplies (except lots of green paper).  I was thinking of pots of gold (can you tell I’m an accountant???)… and wanted to put coins on the card… so it needed to be an easel card.  

This is my first easel card – I found instructions here:

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/easelcard/


So I went to JoAnn & found the pot of gold and the coins as part of their St.Patricks stuff (not part of scrapbooking)…  So I cut the stick off the pot of gold, and made my own rainbow with my copics (remembering ROYGBIV).  I had cloud paper so I cut out one cloud & inked the edges.  I then put some green butterfly paper & the coins on the bottom of the easel.  I stamped Celebrate since I don’t have any St. Patricks day stamps…

And of course I have candy…
