Pinch me

...is THIS a dream? :)

It's nuts.

It's crazy.

Best of all, it's true. :D

Anyways, Happy St. Patricks Day!! Not gonna post without a little something green...

I made this card for sweet Lin, participating in Deb's card swap for the first time - so much fun! I went the easy route and made a card with the theme of friendship...

I painted the flowers petals with glimmer mist - who knew? Seriously, I LOVE this idea! Something tells me I'm going to be doing a bit more painting then I previously did. ;)

That's pretty much it for today - I have some major catching up do in blog world. ;)

Hope you're having a great St. Patricks day!
