Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

grandma croppedI am 1/4 Irish!  My mother’s mother, Mary Green, was the Irish one.

Here are some tags I made for St. Patrick’s Day.  I used clip art from Lettering Delights.  The St. Patrick’s Day subway art was a freebie, and the other graphics were from their Kiss Me I’m Irish graphics set.  I used Stampin’ Up punches for the circle and scalloped circle.  The scalloped rectangles were Cricut cuts, but I can’t remember which cartridge I used for them.

There are lots of Irish blessings, but this is the one my mother taught to me:

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again, may the good lord hold you in the hollow of his hands.

    Great little rages…hummm….I have a lot of LD. I need to look to see if I have any of these darling images. What a delightful pic of grand mama. I did ancestory research and my life was pretty simple with no Irish. I swear , all my ancestors just about came on the Mayflower …a tally the ship after the Mayflower…haha. We have been here forever.
