Double Trouble Challenge #23

It’s time for some more trouble…Double Trouble that is!  This week the team at Double Trouble is pairing up with Heart to Heart to bring you lots of Irish fun as we get ready for St. Patrick’s Day!  Won’t you come check out our challenge by clicking here!

Now for what you’ve been waiting for…


It seems as though I’ve caught the bottom half of a leprechaun on my fun St. Patrick’s themed card.  I’ve been wanting to use this cute elf image from the retired Season of Joy CTMH Cricut Cartridge and I thought it would work perfectly for this card.  I cut the image from several shades of green cardstock and gold foil and added gold sparkles to the toes of his boots.

I hope you’ll come join the fun at Double Trouble – it’s the most trouble you can get into without going to jail!

Happy St Patrick’s Day 

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

If you hopped through the Joyful Stars blog hop last week you probably saw the Amazing Andrea Sherman’s scrapbook crop products if not you can find it here she totally inspired me and I dug through my stash and found what was left of the Flirty Paper Packet from a few years ago.

I knew I wanted to make some fun gifts for St Patrick’s Day – I’d seen some cute Gold Coin Chocolates at the grocery store a few weeks ago and combined with some “golden” Rolo’s!  My tag topper has a base of Fern Cardstock layered with some Flirty B&T.  I then cut the Clover from Key 43 of the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge in a base of New England Ivy and then the petals in the New England Ivy B&T.  The centers are retired Gold Complements.  The So Lucky sentiment is from the Flower Market coordinating stamp set…I use it ALL the time.  The topper was then attached to the bag using our mini stapler.

It’s always fun to prepare something fun for the holidays.

Thanks for stopping by…take a minute and let me know if you make cards for St Patrick’s Day.


Lucky – Color Dare #234

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the color: Green

The Close to My Heart Greens are:

  • Sweet Leaf,  New England Ivy, Fern, Emerald and Willow

You can choose to use one, two, three or all of the Close to My Heart Green’s and add a little gold for an accent if you wish!


Last week I was vacationing in Phoenix (I’d say soaking up some Vitamin D, but that didn’t happen) and planned to “hook up” with fellow Color Dare DT Member, Sue Reynolds – in the lavender shirt behind me and her neighbor Mel (in the green).  They took me to this really cool scrapbook and stamping store (I forgot the name) but it had so many wonderful things.  It’s a serious wonder we ever got out of there.  That’s where I found the cute stamp set for my card this week.


The stamp set is by Newton’s Nook and came with some cute sentiments, the main image and a cute little clover.  I am really picky when it comes to acrylic stamps and this one passed the “Tracey Test”.  My card features the Close to My Heart Colors Willow and Emerald with some accents of gold shimmer tape and gold glitter gems.


OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you’ll sign up to follow my blog…I’ll be back Monday with a cute new card using the stamp of the month.
