A Wee Irish Lass

I have been so CRAZY BUSY lately, that I've neglected my blog--then I had to wait to post this until my friend had received it! Ah well, if I weren't busy--I'd probably be getting into trouble, right? ~wink~

This lovely little Tilda decided she was Irish instead of Swedish--but then, aren't we all claiming a bit of Irish blood around St. Patrick's Day? I needed to get my card made quickly and simply--I was late getting them made as it was--so I stamped Tilda, then masked her to stamp the bench, and some grass at the bottom. I am thinking that the 'think green' could be used for Earth Day next month, too!

But then this lovely lass was on her way to my friend, and hopefully arrived there yesterday, right on time.

Now, I need to get back to work on the invitations for my son's wedding in September. I never really had thought about how much planning and detail really goes into an invitation--not necessarily hard work, but detail oriented planning. I have part of it done, and waiting on the paper for the outside folders--such pretty bronze shimmer paper!!!!! And I'm making good use of the Cricut that my son got me for Christmas a few years ago--could he have been thinking ahead to this? Hmmmmm . . .

I promise will be posting a picture of them after they are mailed out--I hate to make you wait, but it seems best to wait until then--probably in mid-summer. Until then, though--if I disappear for a week or so--you'll know what I'm working on!

Supplies used: Cardstock--Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (green); pearls--Crystal Stickers; Ink--Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copic markers (colors shown below); Stamps--Magnolia (#280--Striped Tights, and #525--Pink Bench--available through Magnolia-licious store), grass (Stamps by Judith); 'Think Green'--Studio G stamps.

Your comments always make me smile! Thank you for leaving them!
