Lucky Charm

What a Sunday!!!  Today we woke up to SNOW!!!  Yes, I said snow.  Yesterday was such a beautiful day, what happened?

Before, I share today's card.  I would like to apologize to you all.  I promised this card was going to be posted yesterday.  But with my Son-In-Law deploying yesterday.  It became the last item on my list of things to do.  For those of you that can relate, thanks for understanding.  Yesterday was a very emotional day for all of us.  However, everything went smoothly.  Now we wait for his return and pray everyday that he and his troop stays safe.  God Bless You All!!!

Now, for all of us that are Irish.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!  Since the Corn Beef, red potatoes and cabbage are cooking in the crock pot.  I thought I would take a few minutes and share with you my "Lucky Charm".  So let's get started....

Today's card is a shaped card.  On St. Patrick's Day the tradition is usually to drink beer.  Well now a days it is green by simply adding a few drops of green color into a light colored beer.  How easy is that.  Here is mine...

The color yellow is actually orange.  But for some reason when I scanned my card it turned it yellow.  Oh well, he still is cute.
