Luck of the Irish 2 day Blog Hop.
March 17th at 11:30 a.m. through March 18th at 11:30 p.m.

Welcome to Day 2 of the very first Luck of the Irish Blog Hop.

If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. If not, and just lucked up on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

We're so excited to being doing this hop, and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented folks. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop.

This hop runs from Mar. 17 - Mar 18, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what BLOG CANDY you could possibly WIN!! Come back both days to see some new projects.
Flip for The Irish-Day 2 of Blog Hop

We love these types of cards because they are interactive for the receiver.  Simply pull on the ribbon and the card "waterfalls" little mini cards!

For this card, we used part of a template from "Waterfall Collection"."  To see more from this collection you can visit this  link: 

On this card we went a little crazy with the patterns.   St. Patty's day is hugely celebrated where we live... anyone hear of Chi-Rish?  Chicago has a huge parade, gatherings on the streets, everyone is wearing green!  So really is there such a thing as too much green?  This card is just breathing the Chicago spirit!

  • Cut green cardstock to create 4.5 x 5 card base
  • Downloaded and cut my waterfall template
  • Used a vellum sticker pack for the mini card section
  • Added glittered four leave clovers.
  • Lastly, cut a shamrock ribbon at the pulley

This card only took about 10 minutes to create because we used stickers, you can be as simple or elaborate as you like on these waterfall cards.  Who ever the recipient is, they will think you are amazelying gifted by creating this interactive card!
