St. Patrick's Day | for Birch Press Design

Hi there, today I have a card over on the Birch Press Design blog for St. Patrick's Day which is this coming weekend. After what has been a VERY long, cold and snowy winter I feel that St. Patrick's Day is a hint that springtime is coming.

This past weekend I was away at a stamping retreat and when I came home the snow had gone down about 4" from when I left. Great news but while I was sleeping and during the day on Monday 6 more inches fell!!! So I could use a little Luck of the Irish and maybe the temperatures will warm up and the snow will melt!

Pretty Poppy - Concord & 9th Guest Design

Happy Friday!

I am here today with my last post as the February Guest Designer at Concord & 9th!
Today for the Feature Friday post we are sharing projects created with the Pretty Poppy stamps and the Pretty Poppy dies.

This first card was created with the Pretty Poppy die set. The details these dies make are so beautiful. The sentiment is from the Floral Prints Silhouette stamp set.

Party in the Park - February 2019



Well didn't February go flying by? I don't think I have ever been so happy to see the see the beginning of  March as I am this year.  I know that it has been cold and snowy all over the continent this year but where I live, which is normally snowy, we have just been getting blasted with snow, snow and more snow! So hoping with today's wicked snowstorm that it means that March is coming in like a lion!

As it is the last day of the month it is time for this month's 12 Kits of Occasions post. Lovely Nancy Penir, Artful Notions,  is our hostess this month and what a gorgeous kit she sent out to us all!

Sorry to be a bit late, I have a couple projects to share from this fantastic kit. There will be more coming soon. Thanks for stopping in and  have a great weekend!
