Great sketch challenge



Hello Friends ... It's Pals Paper Arts Thursday and St. Patrick's Day.  This week we have a sketch for you to play with.  Here is our inspiration from the very talented Margaret Moody...



I followed this sketch perfectly and was pleased with the end result.  

Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes, Fabulous Phrases
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, White
DSP:  Ice Cream Parlor (sale-a-bration)
Ink:  Old Olive, Melon Mambo (marker)
Accessories:  Ice Cream Parlor buttons and ribbon (sale-a-bration), DMC floss, Old Olive ribbon, circle cutter
All products are Stampin' Up!

I hope you find some time this week to join in the fun of creating a beautiful card.

It has been a wonderful week in Alabama!  I think Spring has sprung and Bethany has been home all week on her spring break from UAB.  Michael had a soccer game Monday, Tuesday and has another one tonight.  So far they are undefeated and looking really good as a team.  I love having my children home and all of us being together.


Happy St. Patrick's Day,
Pam~

Ooh, Pam...I love it! You are not going to believe the first thing when I opened this was what a happy card, then saw the sentiment. It is certainly that.
I love dots and stripes so that caught my eye and those buttons are just what was called for.

You're so right about the weather. I'm having my son and family from GA this weekend and the one from Huntsville. The weather is going to be awesome. Yea!
