St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop

Hey there!! Welcome to Purple Cow's St. Paddy's Day Blog Hop! If you've hopped here from Samantha's fabulous blog, then you are well on your way to the pot o' gold (AKA Purple Cows RAK) at the end of the rainbow!! If you just happened to pop in on my blog, please join us...I guarantee you'll have a great time and gain a ton o' inspiration. Just go back Purple Cows' blog and start from there. Be sure to leave comments on each blog and make it all the way to the end of the hop for a chance to win small RAKs from some DT members and an awesome prize from Purple Cows!!! How fab is that?

I've always loved St. Patrick's Day--I don't know if it's because green is at the top of my favorite colors list or perhaps because my maiden name is Leary (thanks to some Irish ancestors Waaaaaaay down the line), so I had a blast coming up with this party idea. I created a St. Patrick's Day party invitation and an adorable leprechaun hat place setting using Purple Cows Smart Trimmer (1060) along with designer click blade 2811 and My Mind's Eye papers. I used this site to help me create the hat--I just came up with my own measurements.




I spritzed the buckle and the top portion of the card with gold glow smooch spritz and added a few clover stickers to complete the look!


supplies: Trimmer, click blade- Purple Cows; patterned paper- My Mind's Eye, cardstock- Bazzill; ribbon; Color spray- Clear Snap; stickers- Reminisce; rub-ons- one heart...one mind, Melissa Frances; border punch- Martha Stewart; corner rounder- EK Success


I hope you've enjoyed this project!

Anyone who leaves a comment on this post between now and Wednesday 3/17/10 at 11:59 EST, will be eligible to win a small RAK from me!

Now it's time to hop on over to Vicki's awesome blog! Have fun and luck o' the Irish to ya!!


Until next post...
