Happy St. Patrick's Day and more bags



How do you skip a St. Patrick's day blog hop for an Irish stamp company?  Since I don't really have any St. Patrick's day themed stamps, I went with the green on green look.  I've used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge with the ColourQ colors and Waltzingmouse Stamps so I could hop along with the p-a-r-t-y!  Simon Says Stamps's challenge this week is "a bit of green".

Okay and since I've jumped on board for the WMS party, I didn't want my friends at The Craft's Meow to feel left out-- as they're celebrating their 1st birthday party.  So I have made two more bags (bringing the grand total to go do down to...  49), one with the birthday challenge sketch and one with the monthly sketch. Both use the Craft's Meow Vintage Snowflakes.  




Materials: WMS Big Blooms Chrysanthemums, Coredinations card stock, PTI simply chartreuse card stock, PTI Spring Moss card stock, green card stock from scraps, Verafine black ink, Versamark, My Mind's Eye rhinestones, Perfect Pearls

Bags: Custom skier stamp, The Craft's Meow Vintage Snowflakes, PTI Mat Stack 1 dies, PTI Tag It Sale die, My Favorite Things scallop die, PTI double sided banner die,  PTI snowflake impression plate, PTI kraft card stock, Twinery twine, vellum, Stampendous white embossing powder, Tattered Angels black mist, kraft bags
