Top of the mornin' to you.

Hello Everyone,

Hope this Friday is finding everyone well.

Today I bring you the challenge that is being held over at The Outlawz Copic/ProMarker challenge this week.
The theme is St. Patrick's Day. 
Many people just associate this day with the color green and people drinking green beer. While that is what many want you to think that is what it is all about this is the the definition of it.

Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (IrishLá Fhéile Pádraig, "the Day of the Festival of Patrick") is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland.
Saint Patrick's Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion(especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. For Christians, the day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in IrelandHowever, it has also become a celebration of Irishness and Irish culture in general.

That was the lesson of the day LOL. Ok, now on to the card I made for the challenge. 

The image is by All That Scraps. It's a Meople. They are fun. 
I have colored the image with my copics and added some stickles to show off that big shamrock.
The verse is a very old one that I have had for years. I am thinking it is from DRS desgins but I could be wrong. 

The papers are from the Recollections All Season Pad. This pad has 180 sheets of 6x6 papers and there are so many different ones you just don't find in other packs of papers. A little green seem binding for some more texture. I cut the image and the layering piece out with my Cameo. This was just a plain fun card to make. 

I hope you will join us for our St. Patrick's Day challenge. And Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. 

Thanks for stopping by and having a look today.

I am entering this into the following challenges.
