Waltzingmouse Stamps - March Blog Party

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone.  I shared some photos in my earlier post today - click here.

Today is a day when the "Irish" get to celebrate their heritage all over the world.  I was lucky enough to experience the Chicago celebrations for 4 years and boy oh boy! can they party!  I attended a few Downtown Parades and Southside Parades (thankfully held on different weekends) and they dyed the river green downtown - a sight to behold.  

Thinking of all our friends in Chicago and the USA - Go Irish!  See you in September!!!  (Notre Dame play Navy in Ireland in September.)

Now let's get this party started!!!

Last month was my first time taking part in the WMS Blog Party and when I saw this month's theme over on WMS, I couldn't BUT take part!

Lynn advised us back on the 1st of March as follows "Your project needs to contains something St. Patrick’s Day or Irish related, OR green in theme. (use your imagination…green could mean color or something recycled)"
Supplies:  Shamrock Digital stamp - WMS, Spellbinders wonky 
rectangle dies, Papermania textured cardstock, copics 0, 
YG17,YG91, YG11, Y11, pop dots and adhesive.

 I obviously went with all three !! - the green/Irish/St Patrick's Day combo!

Shake a shamrock! Shake a shamrock!
 (this was a marketing campaign by Irish Biscuits for Italia '90) - remember those days! sigh!

This is a freebie digi over on Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I paired it with the Emerald Blessings freebie sentiment.  Thank you Claire!
