Seeing Shamrocks!


When I saw today's Angel Company blog hop subject... Seeing Shamrocks... I was a little worried.  Even though my son was born on St. Patrick's day, I still don't have any stamp sets with shamrocks, and by the time I saw the blog hop post it was too late to order one.  So...  as necessity is the mother of invention, I looked through my Angel Company stamps to see what I could "alter" and I came upon this adorable lion holding flowers.  This was always one of my very favorite sets when I was a demo for the Angel Company...  I think I even have a picture of one of the cards I made with him on this computer.  Hang on.  I'll look.

Anyway, for today's "Seeing Shamrocks" card, I stamped the flowers again on another piece of cardstock, after stamping the image in Memento Black.  Then I cut out around the flowers and drew in some Shamrocks right over the top of them. I colored with Copics and Promarkers and my sentiment is from the Thousand Thanks hostess set.  My sketch is from the Paper Pretties Challenge, and my card has a four-legged friend (well, I think he looks friendly anyway!) for Charisma Cardz.
here he is in all his glory from a few years ago - with his flowers rather than shamrocks and pre-copics. ☺



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blessings!
