Shamrocks in April


Hi everyone!  I hope you all are well.  Just a quick post today to show you the awesome ATC I received from my Treasure Barn ATC Swap partner, Nichole.  The theme was shamrocks.  I really love this card.  It is my first and only St. Patrick's Day-ish card!  Unfortunately, Nichole doesn't have her blog up and running yet, but feel free to leave her a shout out right here!  Here is the card I sent to her:


This was my first attempt at a St. Pat's-ish theme.  I hand painted the background and the shamrock in the right corner.  I affixed the image I downloaded from The Graphics Fairy.  I then put a few coats of glossy ModPodge and of course glitter!  I hope Nichole likes it!

I've been hard at work at work as well as on building an inventory for my yet to be opened Etsy shop.  Here is a card wallet I made the other day. 



I did a little free motion stitching on the outside of the wallet.  What do you think?  Randomness is actually hard...isn't it?

That looks like a great swap. I'm sure she will love it.

I don't usually carry a purse so I have my life in a card wallet in my pocket so measurements are very important to me. Looking forward to seening what you make.
