Irish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hi Everyone!

How was your weekend? Anything fun? We had an incredibly busy but oh so fun weekend. So I have spent the last couple weeks using all my crafty time for a different type of craft. If you noticed I didn't post very much last week or the prior week - well here's why....



My son and his friends participated in the school variety show.  They were the T-birds and sang Grease Lightning. Oh my gosh it was soooo CUTE! See that car - that was done by my oh SOOOO talented hubby - Isn't it amazing. It's cardboard!!! It looks like a real car in this photo (sorry for the bad photo, it was dark and none of us could get a good shot) So by orders of the Mr (heehee) I painstakingly painted this  - (did I mention it's 7 feet long) for days and once it met his approval he added the details that would make the hot rod come to life!  Awesome memories were made:)

Well on to my card for the day
 Oh I know there is supposed to be a pot a gold at the end of the rainbow, but I couldn't resist putting this adorable Leprechaun at the end:)
