Pot of Gold...

With St. Patty's Day quickly approaching, our challenge at There's Magic in the Air this week uses Nina's adorable "Pot of Gold" image.


(Just a reminder - Nina recently added about 25 brand new images to her store, Paper Cupcakes. If you haven't been there to shop lately, you should check them out!)



When you drop by at There's Magic in the Air today to pick up your free image, be sure to wish our Nina a Happy Birthday! She tried to keep it a secret, but that didn't work! Nina, if you are reading, Happy Birthday, dear friend!


Danielle Lord, our hostess this week, asks us to "use the colors green and gold on the products outside of the image, with the added bonus of using metal somewhere on our creations (brad, charm, etc.)



As you can see, I've added a brad to the center of my flower.


As for the green and gold, my CS is green, my ribbon is green, and my tag is matted with beautiful shiny gold CS!



It's a little hard to read the computer generated sentiment. It reads:


May your blessings outnumber


The shamrocks that grow,


And may trouble avoid you


Wherever you go.


~Irish Blessing


I thought of all of you when I used this sentiment!



I saw this stand up card featured on Beate Johns' blog a while back, and just had to try it! If you've never visited Beate's blog, it is a 'must do'! She features the nicest video tutorials. Beate explains things so nicely that even I can do them!!!

Hope that you like this - it was fun to do, and you can find the tutorial on Beate's blog, or in the resources section at Split Coast Stampers.


Hurry over to get your free image and play in this week's challenge! You could win this:



I may be a bit scarce this week. DH injured his knee last Thursday, and we have an appt. with a specialist tomorrow, and our new kitchen countertops are coming on Tuesday afternoon, so I will have a lot of work to do in the kitchen on Tuesday morning! Afterwards, there will be tons of damage control (clean up, etc....)!


Have a Magical Monday, and a great week!


See you asap!

Gorgous card Patti! I love free standing pop up cards, actually, when I first starting stamping I made them by the dozens! I love cards that move, so much fun. Love your colors and that ribbon is the crowning glory. Hope Stan is doing OK, knees are not fun when they hurt. Have a great day. Sally
