I am experiencing another blasted headache today.......... Luckily, I made an extra background using the Spritzed Stone technique from the Technique Junkies last week. I made a quick card using a new Stampin Up stamp called Go Green. My Dad is 100% Irish, and I am always on the lookout for different Irish stamps (how many pots of gold and Irishmen jumping and clicking their heels can one stamper own.......?). When I saw this SU stamp, I had to order it........
I colored just the clover on the stamp with my SU Glorious Green marker, and stamped it multiple times for the background. I like this clover- nicely done SU! Anyway, stamped the sentiment, then punched out the SAB scallop punch and did the corners with the coordinating corner punch. I added a ribbon and a charm.
It was like Christmas in my mailbox today! Here are the ATC's I recieved from the TJ swap:

The TJ ATC swap is organized by Juliet Arrighi who is a multi-talented stamper and Artisan. Please stop by and say hello- she was featured on Digital Two for Tuesday today and has a fantastic project that she shared! Outstanding!!!
This is the card Juliet made recently that I commented on- how much I liked it- and it arrived in my mailbox- I just love it- the play on color on this card is very pleasing to me- and I will be posting this in my crafting room to admire!
Speaking of admiring......My Blogging Sis and friend Kathy (Will Stamp for Wine) sent me this wonderful card- she played along with the Greeting Farm CHA giveaway. I tried to play along, but posted my link in the gallery instead of in the comment section, so did not get this cute image. I was really disappointed and whined about it quite a bit.....Kathy has 4 young children and knows about whining...so she sent me this RAK- I am a very happy camper now, and have to stop whining about it now! (Even Chocolate did not make me this happy........!!!)
Watch for another Blog Candy this week- I am feeling very fortunate this Spring to have a loving family and a comfortable life-I only want for more stamping time! I found some fun 'stuff'' today- fun Valentines themed stuff- including mailboxes from target. Plus- this is post #125!!! I will be posting before the weekend.
