Wee, Wee, Wee all the Way to Ireland

It's a new year. And along with the new year - a new request from friend Mary Lee. She needs five St. Patrick's Day cards. I decided to make them using Baby Bud designs because they are so wee and so darn cute! So I spent the day coloring Baby Buds using Ireland's flag colors rather than putting away Christmas dishes. The dishes shall remain stacked and ready for a trip to their storage area for another year. They are such beautiful dishes - a gift from my sister Judy. Too bad they get used so little. Maybe I will have to host a Christmas in July - just so I can use them again before a year passes by.

Two down three to friend Mary Lee requested five Easter cards. So in checking my math (which if you know me at all - is a GOOD thing to do - the corrected total is two down eight to go.) This plus my commitment to the Do You Stack Up Design Team...won't leave much time for cooking or cleaning - DARN!

Here is sneak peek at the three other St. Paddy wee bits. Look for each of them to be used on a card later this week.

Erin Go Bragh and Bonne Année!
