Lucky You....

"Good friends are like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have around"
Thanks to you all, whom I consider my wonderful friends. I'm so lucky to have you around in my bloggy life!
That's right, "Lucky You!" You are in for a fun day of Irish Luck if you are visiting The Sisterhood to help us kick off our debut challenge!
This week our hostess is my super incredibly talented sistah, Darlene. You all know her and have seen her talents at Penny's Challenges, Wink Wink Ink, and Raise the Bar to just name a few.
She thought taking this Around the World Challenge to Ireland would be the lucky way to begin things. When you see what all my sistahs have created, you will agree! I have them all linked up on my side bar. Please give them a cup of love today!

I used this fun Irish top hat with the lucky shamrock that can be picked up at Delicious Doodles, and created by my super talented sistah, Teri Sherman. My card was created for my oldest nephew, Tyler. He celebrated his 19th birthday on Sunday. At his age, we always joke that all he wants is something "green ". So he got the Luck of the Irish this year.....and plenty of his green ($$$$).
This card was fun to create. I used watercolor pencils and a blending pen to color it in. I used a metallic gel pen for the gold buckle on the hat and tried to replicate that in the ribbon and the chipboard slide. I wrote the lucky you with my white gel pen.
Now, roll your sleeves up, sip some warm Irish cream coffee, and play along with us this week. We are in it for loads of fun and fellowship. I hope to see many familiar faces playing along!
Blessings for a lucky day,
