Ah, St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you are Irish or not, you have to love St. Patrick’s and all of its accompanying green goodies. Here is my St. Patrick’s day version of the decorated pepermint patties, as previously seen for Hanukkah and Valentine’s Day. (I think this basic combo can be made for any occasion!)

cimg7534Here’s a close up of the patties. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the glitter or not, so I did one with and one without.

What’s not to love about St. Patrick’s Day? I’m not Irish or Catholic, but I still enjoy the wearing o’ the green. And the eating o’ the green. And the drinking o’ the green for that matter! The card below was inspired by a similar card by Connie Babbert. I used the Sale-a-Bration set Polka Dot Punches (still available through the end of March!) and the Full Heart Punch to make the shamrock. I made the stem by punching a sliver with the Wide Oval Punch.

Whoo-hoo, it’s March! March has a couple of great, though often overlooked, holidays — Purim and St. Patrick’s Day. We’ll get to Purim cards in a couple of days. For now I want to show you a card I made for a swap last year. It was a HUGE swap, and I had to make close to 100 of these cards. Thank goodness that Steve helped with all of the gold embossing! He definitely knows his way around the heat gun. I love this set, though I only use it once a year. It has a matching wheel, which is great for scrapbook pages. I certainly have plenty of pictures of Eve wearing green and eating green bagels on St. Patrick’s Day!
