 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Love Script"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Big Cupcake"
 

I was in Michaels last week and found the perfect patterned paper to use with today's set, Lots of Luck.  After cutting the strip of patterned paper, I positioned my pot of shamrocks at one of end of the rainbow.


I cut the single shamrock using a circle nestie and the "out of the box" technique.  I rounded off the ends of the words piece with my Word Window punch.

Even though I used the leprechaun on my second card, it is not necessarily a St. Patrick's Day card.  I just added three shamrock buttons down the side.


Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the designer team and comment for a chance to win a free set of stamps.  PattyLois (that's_me), Vicky, JaneDebbie,  PamPat,  Thrifty_Stamper,  MariLynn,  Karen,

You really did find the perfect DP for that first card - it's so adorable - and the rainbow with the pot of clover is very cute! Your second card is bright, happy and so cute!!

I smiled as soon as I saw your first card! It is whimsical with the clouds and the rainbows. The pot of clover is perfect at the end of the rainbow. I also love your polka dot embossed background. Makes me still think of clouds! You did such a great job with coloring the leprechaun! And the clover buttons are perfect!
