Irish for the Day

Hi there.  I just got some really bad news.  Our neighbor and friend was killed last night in a car accident.  He hit the guardrail and the Jeep flipped and rolled and he was ejected from the car.  Please pray for the Chappel family.  They just lost their dad at the end of last year.  Our friend was suffering from blood clots in his legs, so I am really hoping that one broke loose and hit his heart.  I would hate to think that he was conscious when he was thrown from the car.  Thanks for your prayers.

The card I have for y'all features a stamp from Dustin Pike.  I love his little dragons.  They are so dang cute. I printed out the image on Neenah card stock and colored him with BIC markers and Spectrum Noir.

I used a new technique that I watched on StampTV with Gina K.  You use your smallest Nestabilities, any shape, and place them randomly on your DP or card stock.  I used a piece of green vellum.  Cut a piece of card stock or DP the same size as the one with the holes and once you get them cut out in a pattern, adhere the cut piece to the second piece.  You can run both of them through an embossing folder if you like.  I used an Argyle pattern folder for the second piece of DP.  I then matted that onto another piece of DCWV  DP.  The whole thing is placed on a Very Vanilla card base from SU. I die cut the image with oval Nestabilities and inked the image with DI Wild Honey.  The scalloped mat is Mint Green card stock from Gina K.  I added three buttons from my stash.  I stamped the greeting from Studio G with Versa Magic Spanish Olive.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope y'all have a great day!  God bless y'all.
