Happy St. Patrick's Day

The corned beef is in the crockpot, and it is starting to smell pretty good! I will add the cabbage soon and make soda bread later. I will probably end up eating this special dinner by myself tonight, since Ed has to work late, as usual, and he cannot slip out early since he had to leave early yesterday to see his dentist. His employer will probably provide dinner for him tonight. So, Ed will most likely eat at work, then come home and eat again. He always seems to find room in his tummy if I bake something from scratch.

Anyway, on to today's card. Karrie challenged us to use any Irish stamps from The Cat's Pajamas for this week's TCPTUES50 challenge. I don't have any Irish TCP stamps, but I do have the Cauldron from TCP, and with a little alchemy (colored pencils and glitter), a cauldron o' bubbles can become a pot o' gold!

I put Stickles (glitter glue) on the faux brads too. The sentiment and shamrock are the only St. Patrick's Day stamps I have!

The ribbon frame was a technique I learned over on Splitcoaststampers, and it is this week's TLC212 challenge. Woot! It has been ages since I have done a Technique Lover's Challenge!

Stuff used:
Stamps: Cauldron from The Cat's Pajamas, sentiment from SU More Great Greetings, Shamrock from SU Bitty Bolds
Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Handsome Hunter, Summer Sun
Ink: Palette Jardin Moss, Versamark, Prismacolor pencil and Gamsol
Other: satin ribbon from Jo Ann, Diamond Stickles, 3/16" circle punch
