Top o' the Mornin'

Hello everyone!  Today we start our new challenge at the Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends.  Our challenge is always anything goes, so we would love to see all of your projects.

St. Patrick's Day is on the way and even though I don't really ever send cards, I love images of leprechauns and shamrocks.  I always make a few cards so I can use them.  This is Peeker March from Bugaboo Stamps.  He looks surprised that someone has found his pot of gold!  He was colored with Copics and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.  The card base and sentiment are also Silhouette cut files.  The coins are colored with a gold Wink of Stella pen and I added a few more "gold coin" buttons to really make his treasure shine.

This challenge brings two wonderful sponsors.  You can click each badge to check out all of the wonderful items on offer.

Prize of 7 digital stamps


Prize of a $12 gift certificate

You have two weeks to enter the challenge so plenty of time to get a project linked up.  I hope you will join us.

Inkspirational has a geometric challenge.  This little leprechaun is going to hide some of his gold in that challenge.

Craft for the Craic has a Luck of the Irish challenge.  This little leprechaun is going to visit and share in the luck.

Cut It Up has a St. Patty's Day challenge.  This little leprechaun wants to see all of the St. Patty's Day inspiration in that challenge.

Really Reasonable Ribbon has a show me the green with a bit of ribbon, lace or trim.  This leprechaun love green and his bit of lace and he is going to play in that challenge.

Fairy Tale Challenges has a shaped cards theme.  This leprechaun is going to take his shamrock card and play in that challenge.

Catch the Bug has an anything goes challenge.  This leprechaun is going to take a peek at all of the projects in that challenge.
