oday we are going Irish! Hey,everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! Right? LOL. It is quite fun preparing a green card! So many cute traditions on St. Patrick’s…like those sweet potatoes candy. Humm. They are yummy..and I don’t even care for Cinnamon (I know I just offended more then 1/2 of the population..but the spice makes me choke – so I do have an excuse : ) ). Oh, the Soda bread….even that Silly Green Milkshake from McDonald's. I have a very dear friend that green milkshake is her St. Patrick tradition ; ). Cheers! Every time I see that shake pops she comes to mind!
Please someone tell me what “ Erin-go-Bragh” means? I heard some explanations but I am still puzzled LOL. It sounds so funny.
As you can see I did have a good time making this card. Since I found this little sentiment from Studion G…right away I knew what Gilli I would use! Sassy Parisian Gilli! I colored Gilli with Copic markers and created a little stripped pattern on her tee using my copic multiliner (I cannot go without it - if you cannot find them locally check out oozak.com, Rusty got them all and all the trimmings). For a more fun and party like look, I added a little ruffle lace to Gilli’s skirt! Of course I had to add bling ; ). How about those shoes..yeah she is very in with her glitter pumps…Gilli’s Lebuttin LOL (matching the hat too! ).
The base and the clovers were created using the Silhouette cutter. That Celtic knot is super cute!. A cute little lace makes a frame for the base. The trellis is also from the Silhouette library.DP papers are from MME and Crate Paper. Little embellish stamps, from Studio G.
If you are feeling lucky this week join us over The Greeting Card challenge over The Outlawz! If you are feelin’ really really lucky (or just wanna have fun) come over To House of Gilli, the house is going green this week!!
Thanks Jojo. Jojo was kind enough to educate me!! Here is what Jojo explained to me about the sentiment I used on my card : )"Erin go bragh is a way to express allegiance to Ireland. They say it means Ireland Forever"
