A Pot of Gold

Got some happy mail this weekend and had some time today to play with my new goodies:)  I wanted to create a St. Patty's Day card and I used the current Seize the Sketch challenge for inspiration:




Lots of stamping and die cutting on this one.  I absolutely looooove this new Paper Smooches rainbow die!!  After die cutting it in ROY G BV cs I also die cut the stamped cloud circle so I could inset the rainbow pieces.  And isn't the pot of gold adorable?!  I haven't purchased a new Cricut cart in a long time but when I saw the endless possibilities to add googly eyes to all the images on Cricut cart "Create a Critter 2" I knew I "needed" it:)
Other Supplies Use:  Hero Arts cloud and magical bg's and soft pool shadow ink, Stampin' Up cs (various colors) and sentiment, Papertrey cloud die and white cs, MFT grass die, Spellbinder circle die, Echo Park pp, JoAnn's sequins and googly eyes, SSS pearls colored with yellow Sharpie

Hope you have a great week!  We finally got a new computer and I'm still learning all the new features.  I keep telling myself it's good for the brain to learn new stuff but I sure do miss being able to mindlessly upload, edit and post my pics:)

I hear you about the new computer, Robin! I gave up on the photo program I bought & just use what's in Office--need to try again. You make the absolute best little scenes! This is a masterpiece!

You are the queen of scenes, Robin! This is super cute and so very well done, too. Your attention to every little detail is superb. Have fun with your new computer - I don't think it will take you long to be proficient with it.
