Happy St. Patrick's Day...March Friends of WMS Blog Waltz 67

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | ,

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you who celebrate~after all as the saying goes, "Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!" Here today for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. This month's theme is all about St. Patrick's Day/Irish. Claire has changed things up a bit, instead of having a competition to spot things in photos like we usually do - Claire will pick a random commenter from the March of WMS blog waltz chat thread (click HERE) to award a prize to.
  
All you have to do is chat about your favourite St Pat's day memories - or things to do - or indeed any old blether you have to say about things Irish in general will do. Just post it HERE. On the 20th, Claire will pick a random post. Of course the more you chat, the more chances you have of winning. You can find COMPLETE details in the Waltzingmouse Forum (Playroom:Blog Waltzes), where you'll also find all the links for the waltz.
 I printed a free digital image from HubPages of a sweet little Irish girl then showcased her on paper created by stamping various background sets including: polka dots from Off Beat Backgrounds, Musical Backgrounds.
I stamped the CELEBRATE sentiment from Free Spirit - Sentiments then using a ribbon banner die template from S4-324 Ribbon Banners to cut/emboss the image.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you join along with the waltz enjoying all the Irish inspiration along the way! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Off Beat Backgrounds, Musical Backgrounds, Free Spirit - Sentiments
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® S4-324 Ribbon Banners, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
