DCD #206 – St. Patrick’s Day

Top of the mornin’ to ya!  This week it’s all about celebrating your Irish — Saint Patrick’s Day projects, that is, over at Die Cuttin’ Divas.  I’m trying to use my Cricut cartridges more, so I looked and looked at my handbooks until inspiration struck.  To my surprise, I found my inspiration on the Paper Pups cartridge.  The card itself is on page 74 and the pup is from page 30.  He’s running around with a daisy in his mouth, but I substituted a chain of shamrocks from Little Scraps of Heaven Bear with Shamrocks file.

P1090895webI ran the front of the card through my eBosser with one of the embossing folders that came with it.  Back on my gypsy, I just grouped two circles together to fit the round hole.  I just printed the sentiment on my computer!

Here are the details for this week’s Saint Patrick’s Day challenge:  Begins: March 10th, ends: March 16th, sponsor: Mary at Cardz TV, prize: Stamp Set.

Hope to see your projects over at Die Cuttin’ Divas!
