Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Mar 17, 2007 in Cards |

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! Well – that’s about as Irish as I get, I’m afraid!

Mike and I went to a great St. Patrick’s Day party last night and I’m still trying to recover this morning – I’m not used to staying up so late! Lots of great food and good friends – a really fun evening!

What with it being almost spring and all, you would think that it would be nice and warm today here in NJ – hmmm…let’s take a look outside at lovely Pitman today…

Yeah, looks real warm and cozy, doesn’t it? But really – spring WILL be here soon, right?

I have my Scrapbooking Ministry Crop today – I doubt that we’ll have a very good turnout with weather like this. I’ll be speaking about ‘peace’ today and sharing my peaceful pages (see previous post).

*** SPOILER ALERT ****

If you will be attending my Kid’s Birthday Card Stamp-A-Stack on Monday, 3/19 and do NOT want to see what the cards will look like, read no further on this post!!!!!

(I’ve had a few complaints that some of my attendees like the element of surprise…)

On Monday night, I am holding a Stamp-A-Stack where we are only making birthday cards for children. I had many requests for this idea – nothing’s worse than having to run out at noon on a Saturday morning to pick up a birthday card for the party that starts at 12:30 because you forgot all about it!

Here are the cards I designed – cute and simple! I tried to do a mix of boy’s and girl’s cards – for the card in the last photo, they’ll have a choice of the frog or the flowers – same layout, different stamps.

There are 5 cards – we’ll make 2 of each design for a total of 10 cards. I’m also including envelopes to fit the cards. I tried to use some different sized cards this time (square, etc) – I’m getting bored with the same old 5 1/2 by 4 1/4….

 

 

Kid’s cards are so much fun!  I could have done at least another 5 designs for this Stamp-A-Stack if I had time.  I actually had a difficult time narrowing down the stamps sets and colors to use!  I wanted to do one with Wild About You, Totally Cool and Lively Little Ones too but I had to stop myself…

But I think that these are great, easy cards – perfect for a child’s birthday!
