Happy St Patrick's Day

No drowing the shamrock for me this year, these days St Patrick's Day just means a free day off work, plus I treated myself to Friday off too, so it's a lovely looong weekend :)  It's a bit brrrrr-chilly though, we'd sleety snow this morning, hopefully the weather wises up a bit for the St Patrick's Day parades.

My cute Paddy is from High Hopes - Leapin Leprechaun - coloured with promarkers and gold glitter added to his buckle details.  Shamrocks have green stickles added to centres, the odd one is popped up on dimensionals, but doesn't really show up in pic.

Oh, a happy one he is...what a fun card. Love your papers, too. A long weekend, how awesome! Enjoy the festivities. Our church choir is all about green today. Hubby was glad to put on his green shirt to show his Irish descent.
