High Hopes: Leapin' Leprechaun

For my High Hopes DT project today I've made a calendar page which is part of an ongoing project for my Mum.

I've used Leapin' Leprechaun as my image in celebration of St Patrick's Day on the 17th, and St Patrick's Day is always worth celebrating as we get a free day off work here in Northern Ireland ... even better this year as I've treated myself to the Monday off work too ;)
Coloured with watercolour pencils and then popped up on dimensionals.  added clear gloss and glitter to the shamrocks and silver stickles to his buckles as every leprechaun needs a bit of bling!  My embossing folder and silver date peel off are oldies from my stash.

This is the last day to enter February's Anything High Hopes Goes challenge over at High Hopes, but there'll be a brand new challenge tomorrow.

Other Challenges
Naughty or Nice - it ain't easy being green
Simon Says Stamp Monday - just a hint of clover
Curtain Call - lucky
Simply Create Too #80 - St Patrick's Day
Crafts 4 Eternity R#215 - emboss it

  5. Depending on where one lives in the U.S., St. Patrick's celebrations can be big,small or nonexistent. Here in Minneapolis, there is a parade and lots of partying in the evening. No day off of work, though. Sad. Since we have so many people here of Irish descent, I think we OUGHT to have a day off of work. Your calendar page is so merry! Love that little leprechaun!
