St. Patricks Birthday card! / Joy's Life St. Patty's Blog Hop

Top of the day to ya!!   Happy St. Patty's Day everyone! Welcome to the Joy's Life St. Patrick's Day blog hop. If you just came over from the very talented Laura's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to check into today, why dont' you join in on the fun and start from the beginning.  There is a lot of inspiration, not to mention yummy blog candy, along the way!

Today is one of my BFF's birthday, so I thought I would make her a cute little card celebrating both occasions. :)  It was so easy to create the perfect sentiment using Joy's Life Everyday Occasion and Holiday Occasion stamp sets, which can be found here.

I had a lot of different ideas about what to do with the card, but in the end, I settled on this:

I wanted to put a rainbow on the card (since leprechauns love rainbows you know!), but since it was her birthday, I thought it would be fun to add a rainbow made of balloons!!!  I was so happy when I realized I had twine to match each color too!! Woo Hoo!  I can't wait to give her, her card... I hope she likes it! :)

Now it wouldn't be a blog hop without some blog candy would it???  If you would like to have a chance to win these fun goodies, I would love for you to follow my blog and leave me a comment and a way to contact you if you are the winner!


I hope you are enjoying our hop today... your next stop is the fabulous Megan.
