Happy St. Patrick's Day! - SSS147

Hi all! Hope you had a Terrific week!  Mines been a bit Crazy and interesting to say the least.. Luckily more ups than downs, So all things considered, I call that a Pretty Good week!  But it definitely Flew by lol.. 8-) I can't believe it's already Saturday again! And you know what that means... It's time for another Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge! Yay! 8-)  This weeks sketch was really quite the challenge for me, as it seemed to require less image and more elements.. And lately I've been a bit image happy, lol, so I really had to pull myself out of that rut, which is always a good thing to do, and think a little differently to come up with my interpretation of Korin's Fabulous Sketch! A bit of a different style for me, but I think it came out pretty well, all & all... 8-)  So without further delay, Here's is my take on Miss Korin's Fabulous Sketch...
My Mats and BG Layers and Shamrocks were created using a combination of MaryAnn Wise's Great Outdoors digi dp's and digi dp's from Anita Richards One Day at a Time collection. I created my fun little Shamrocks with the help of my Cricut and the Celebrate with Flourishes Cartridge, definitely a great one to have for Holidays..8-)  My I/O Sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto my BG after I added a touch of distressing with my Snowcap paint dauber so the polkadots would not overpower it. And to finish it all up I added some cute little buttons all tied up with some Yummy Baker's twine from MAD Stamper Finds. 8-)

Here's Miss Korin's Awesome Sketch!
I Sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with for this week's Sketch! And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Fabulous creations the rest of the Terrifically Talented Sugar Babies have whipped up for your inspiration. Leave them a little Love too, it's always greatly Appreciated...8-)

  8. Shannon- WHat a great card for St Patrick's Day! Love the spray of Shamrocks... I have been trying to watch my food intake - and McDonalds has had their Shamrock Shakes out this month - and I have been holding out for 2 weeks to get to a certain goal and then rewarding myself with a few sips of one of those babies! So today after church, I am getting one! LOL Thanks for the reminder with your card! Have a very blessed week!
