St Patty's Day cards

Hey friends!
Today was the first day I've taken a break from working on the layouts I'm doing for hire, and worked on some cards. I took her another 67 layouts.  I'm always so thankful for my Fancy Pants collections when I'm working on these layouts.... because they make things so easy.  I pull out a collection and I have the papers, stickers, title, and embellishments that all coordinated  right there!  They save me so much time!  My studio still looks like a tornado hit it by the end of the day, but hey, that's just how I roll. lol
Today I used Graphic 45 images, mixed with some other papers.  Now since I've decided to step back from my design team requirements, It's really nice to create what I want with whatever supplies  I want. Lots of creative freedom <3 p="">
The weather has been pretty blah the last few days.  Grey and cold!  I always love the view out of my upstairs studio window, but even that has been pretty bleak.  It's Feb in Nebraska.  We just look forward to a sunny day now and then, even if it's cold. 
Good thing I have no where to go and it's nice and toasty warm in here.

It's been pretty boring around here the last week ,but considering all that went on in January, THAT is totally fine with me!  
 I did book my ticket to go see my Florida family the first part of April, so I'm really looking forward to that!

Below is something I saw on FB that I thought was so clever.  Super fun project for kids.  I thought I'd share it here.

With Green being my favorite color, it's probably surprising that I don't really put out any St Patrick's Day Decorations. ( I do always make corned beef and cabbage that day tho)  Maybe I should start putting out a little something. I'm pretty sure I did when the kids were little.
How many of you put our St Patty's decor?
I'd love to hear.

Have a great day! Vicki

Good morning...what a fun and beautiful way to begin my day...reading your lovely post. Those are darling "shamrock day" cards! We have also had many cold days so I can relate about getting out. When our kids were small I used to put out a few St. Patrick's day decorations, but not so anymore. I do like to have a couple of shamrock plants out, and the ice cream cone idea is great! Think of you often and you know I always enjoy your posts as well as your Instagram feed. Hugs,

Good morning Vic. Love the St. Patty's greeting and the cards. Never did decorate much for St. Patrick's day. I don't even remember much back in the school days about it. I love the cone idea and of course, I always love your decor at the window. Clever girl, my friend. Hugs and here's to more boring times stamping and playing till the sun busts back through and warmer days come forth. By the way, my best buds in Mass. loved their hearts. Thanks so much!
