Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz....it's my first time and I feel {Lucky}!

Sometimes you gotta ask yourself, "do YOU feel lucky, well, do ya?"  Oh wait, no, not Dirty Harry lucky but Luck 'o the Irish LUCKY!  A green shamrock, rainbow in the sky kinda lucky...the brand of luck that finds you on St Patrick's Day!!  Happy St Patty's Day everyone!  And I'll tell you, I DO feel lucky because today is the first time I've been able to play in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop!  Yahoooo! 
So while the corned beef is simmering in the crock pot today, I am going to treat myself to a festival o'green eye candy sure to be had along the WMS hop.  I decided to do a WMS double header by also using the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge #38:


I inked up stamps from the smoking hot brand new Very Vintage Labels 18 and  Bitty Banners.  Side note, Bitty Banners has me wanting to whip up wee little banners to hang about....hmmmm, that's a thought!

Another reason I'm lucky?  I found the PERFECT little shamrock button in my green button bag.  Just one, but that was all I needed for this card.  I blinged it up with some Want2Scrap bling because I do love me some sparkles!  If I can't find the pot of gold today at the end of a rainbow, at least I've got BLING!

And the biggest reasons I'm lucky?  Well, I have amazing family and friends (hi friend, yes I'm talking to you!) and I am wife to my treasured hubs and I am mom to two of the best girls I know....oh, and I get to papercraft!!  Too many blessings to count so I'll just summarize with, "yes, I am LUCKY"!

Thanks so much for coming by and sharing your generous rainbow colored spirit with me today.  See you on the hop and Happy St Patrick's Day!

{Insert Irish brogue, here!}

Ahhhh, yes, m'lassie! A FINE rainbough coulered spirit it is, and I'm not slingin' any blarney, when I declare "me IRISH eyes are a smilin'!" For this, m'lucky friend, is the FINEST pot-o-gold I've ever laid m'eyes upon! YOUR are a crafty treasure, y'ar! Ifin' you be looky enough to be THIS talented, m'lass, y'er looky ENOUGH!

{Without the brogue: I wonder what the Irish equivalent of "Yee Haw"would be?}

THIS rocks harder than a U2 concert on St. Patty's Day! {HA!}

xoxo!
