Top 'o the morning

Happy St Patrick's day to those of you who might celebrate it -- or even just those who partake of the traditional corned beef and cabbage that's served most places on Thursday this week!!  This WhipperSnapper bear looks like he's struck it lucky with his fistful of 4-leaf clovers - oh well, best of luck next year on finding that elusive pot of gold, too.  He's been colored with prisma pencils, and his clovers were done with a glitzy gel pen.    The foam clovers were gifted to me by my friend, Marty - the hearts were popped out of the clovers to use in other spots, which made for a clever design.  The ribbon I've had in my stash for a while now, as well as the gold doily.

  9. Great card, and as an Irish girl, thanks for the good wishes ;) also it's funny that corned beef has become seen as traditional Irish fare, bacon and cabbage is far more likely to be served here! :)
