Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Would you like to receive a little treat bag of candy with a leprechaun made from Stampin’ Up! punches? Yesterday on the Stampin’ Up! home page I saw a leprechaun like this one but made digitally in My Digital Studio. I decided to make it the traditional way using my punches. I can tell you it is easier to do in My Digital Studio because you can make everything the perfect size you want…make a punch shape larger or smaller, change things to any color, whatever you want!
I just experimented with my punches until I got some things a reasonable size to fit. The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set comes in handy for almost any occasion for the greeting. And don’t you love the Champagne Glimmer Paper?!
This is a little of what History.com says about St. Patrick’s Day:
St. Patrick’s Day takes place each year on March 17, the traditional religious feast day of Saint Patrick.
In 2013, St. Patrick’s day falls on a Sunday.

- Irish soda bread gets its name and distinctive character from the use of baking soda rather than yeast as a leavening agent.
- Lime green chrysanthemums are often requested for St. Patrick’s Day parades and celebrations.
Have a fun and happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m wearing my little shamrock necklace my husband brought me from Ireland last year!
