Better A Lil 'Late Than O'Never


Hi, Friends.....

I usually don't make St. Patrick's Day cards, but lucky me.... I do have some supplies for the occasion.  I got them out and played around a little bit. I am barely getting these posted on the 17th! 

Instead of cards specifically for St. Patrick's Day, I made some Irish-themed birthday cards for friends who are celebrating in the second half of March.   If I dig around in my stash deep enough, crafty goodies for nearly every occasion magically appear....including some of Julee Tilman's Lucky Day digital images printed out way back when she had her Verve shop going.  So I put them with some fun patterned paper scraps to make a few cards.

  5. All three of your cards are perfect for our challenge at Double Trouble... love them all and glad that you used our optional twist on a couple of them. Adorable image at top of post...yes, if you have not used your pumpkin yet, it might be a good idea to replace with St. Patty's Day.

  10. How I enjoy your humor and cute cat photos, Janis! This is a lovely array of cards and I especially like the manner in which you presented them. Your use of color and the lovely plaids add to the creativity. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #105.

  11. Wonderful cards for St Patrick's Day Janis. it just shows what a good rummage - and of course some snippets can turn out, at the hands of a clever gal like you! Missed you, it seems a little while since you played with us - sharing the Sympathy card and showing the image that is so like Dudley Dog! I do love your cat funnies btw! AND, belated Birthday wishes. It slipped past me yet again!

  16. I remember those Julee Tillman digi stamps, and even printed out a few for cards way back when. However, I see that you printed your cups and shamrocks in a larger size than I did, and I love how they look. Great way to use St. Patrick's Day supplies for every day greetings, and the sentiments are multi-purpose too.


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
