German St Paddy's Day Bday


Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here's my square card that I made for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! The theme is St. Patrick's Day. I also followed PaperWorks Co's Sunday Sketch #73.


Now, my Father's bday is today, but he's German so I always have fun throwing in some Irish into his bday. I took the Celtic heart from WMS's Celtic Heritage set to create my lucky shamrock. :-) This was my first time 'playing' with Basic Grey's Marjolaine collection. The cute, central image is a stamp from PaperWork's Co's Rachelle Anne Miller's collection. The sentiment is computer-generated and tis Happy Birthday in German.



Now, hopefully you waltzed over from Jen Shears Designs' blog. And your next waltz is over to Create.Share.Inspire. Be sure to check out all the other waltzers taking part in the WMS Friends Blog Waltz! You'll need to register for the WMS forum in order to see the Waltz forum thread *here*.

Thanks for waltzing by!

  13. Hi there! You had left a comment on the My Scrap Shoppe blog, asking what die I used to cut out my journaling tag. It was a Tim Holtz die called Styled Labels.
    Have a great day!
