Alot-a Goin' On

I was having trouble with blogger last night and only had a chance to post this now. We're any of you having trouble with that too? Anyway, Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Hope you are wearing green if you're not Irish. LOL! Not only is it St. Patrick's Day, but it is also a wedding anniversary for my parents! They have been married for 36 years today, Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!! It is also the birthday of my hubby's grandmother. Today she is 92 years young, Happy Birthday!! =) The card I have today is made with a stamp from Alota Rubber Stamps. They have got some cute and new stamps for St. Pat's Day and for Easter, you gotta check them out!
I really like this one with all the shamrocks, it's actually a versatile stamp where it could stand alone or with another image. I will show you another card with this stamp and another image later this week as I am still working on it. ( I know St. Patrick's Day will be over by then, but that's ok). The sentiment on this card is also from Alota Rubber Stamps.
Something else is going on with Alota, and that is our newest challenge which is hosted by fellow DT member Cindy Haffner. She has a color challenge which involves Purple, Pink and Green. This challenge is over on Paper Craft Planet and will be up until March 31st. There's always a great prize for the winner from Helene so get your card ready and uploaded for a chance to win!
I finally got to use this cutie and she can be found HERE. These colors were actually perfect for this stamp and I was lucky to find paper to go with it and paper pieced it onto my image. I'm in the mood for a St. Patrick's Day celebration, we'll see how the weather is...I hear there will be a storm (rain, not snow) coming in. =)

Hi Jodi!! These cards are so cute!! I love them. I really like the way you used the ribbon on the shamrock card. I did not have trouble on Blogger last night, but I have before and so if I just wait it out a bit it has fixed itself. It always makes me nervous though...:)
