Erin Go Bragh!

Good morning! And yes it is, it's Friday (Yeah), I'm off today (louder Yeah) and it's ACC tourney time!! Can get it better than that? I have yet another SWAP that I was in and wanted to share the pictures from that (Christina let me know she has received this so It's OK to post now).  For this SWAP, we just had to go green! I made a card using the color green (and threw in pink - of course!) and put together a little gift of green thingies!  I etched Christina's name on the jar and filled it with some greenie goodies: flowers, bling, candle votive and ribbon. For the card, I put to use a beautiful crochet flower that the wonderful Angie Haviland made for me! She's an amazing talent and can pretty much make flowers out of anything (trust me on this!) Oh, and you'll be seeing more of the flowers on my cards and other creations - I'm in love with them!!!!
And here is the picture of the package (again, not sure how the etching really shows up in pictures??)
Well off to play with Mortimer, I just cranked him up for the first time and WOW! (well, let's just say Cromwell has been put to shame!).
