"May the winds of fortune sail you,
May you sail a gentle sea.
May it always be the other guy
who says, 'This drinks on me.' "
Cheers to you my friends!
Here's little JJ March from Bugaboo making her grand appearance for the current open linky party happening over at
I've simply placed a 2" wide strip of shamrock paper to the left of a cream cardstock card and layered a double ribbon to form a line of division. A simple bow of ribbon and yarn was made to add a little flair behind the copic colored JJ. The flourishes were stamped on with a very pale pink and then using Platinum and Lime Green stickles, I've alternated dots along the flourish. These lettered beads were then edged with TH Vintage Photo DI and then hot glued on to the card. DI applied to the edges of card as well.
I think a rather straight forward wish for good cheer if I say so myself.
It has always been tradition in our home to prepare cornbeef and cabbage with new potatoes. The aroma that fills the house is amazing while it slow cooks all day and our pallets begin to salivate in anticipation. The aromas later; however, leave me to wonder why on earth do we insist on doing this every year?
Then there is the routine inspection to make sure everyone is wearing green. Without fail, the minute your feet hit the ground, you had better be prepared. The first one up always gets the best dibs on pinching.
Except for the year that my husband was adamantly unyielding in his certainty that a green dot from a Sharpie pen placed on his hand was sufficient enough to avoid any retaliation from his family. Meanwhile, the kids and myself are standing there looking like a trio of those bright green exotic tree frogs! To this day he stands his ground that it "counted." Nay, I say, NAY!!! I think he just panicked and grabbed the first green thing he saw. Honestly, that's like saying that if you have a piece of spinach stuck in your front teeth that THAT should count too.
I'm putting the vote out there, what say ye?
