Wishing You a Happy Day...MFTGUEST0413 35

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate! It's great to be home! Thanks so much for visiting throughout the MFT March Teasers! I really appreciate your support and encouragement! I have lots of photos to share from our trip, just need some time to sort through them but I do have a card and some photos to share of sweet April :)

It's time for the monthly April MFT Guest Designer Contest! The winner of this contest will win over $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics, AND have the opportunity to play along with the design team for the next release and all the Wednesday Stamp Club Challenges for the next month. MFT always has amazing stamp sets around the corner and getting (and stamping with) them early is a special treat. For complete details, please visit the MFT blog. 
Being St. Patrick's Day, I made this card for sweet April :) I combined the 4 leaf clover image from DC Girly Graphic Tee along with a sentiment from Pure Innocence Around the World - The Netherlands. To create the main background, I randomly stamped the 4 leaf clovers using MFT Sour Apple ink on MFT Sweet Tooth cs  
I finished the card with a die cut felt 4 leaf clover that was made using the heart die from Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse along with MFT Sour Apple felt then stitched on a MFT Sno Cone button.
Since it's St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to share a few photos of sweet April that were taken at her last Irish dancing competition that Scott and I attended. Here she is all dressed up and ready to perform:
I love her poise:
At the end, her class performed a line dance. The energy was AMAZING! The whole crowd was clapping as the dancers feet were tapping!

Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great day / night!
Be Sweet ;)

Gorgeous card Mona, I love the felt shamrock, and the fab sketch.
April looks gorgeous in that beautiful dress, and i can appreciate the energy of the Irish dancing, so many moves and steps!

Sandra said...

wow that card looks absolutely suitable for the occasion and I love April dressed up for the dancing. I remember as a child (too many years ago to remember)longing to be able to dance like the Irish girls, I used to sit at the local agricultural show where they were a feature for hours. I can imagine how proud you must feel.
