Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Hello again dear friends and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
This date has become both a happy & a sad day for me!
Happy because I'm married to a wonder man of Irish decent who enjoys celebrating the day with traditional Irish cooking and music (as we did when Mother Pavlick was alive).
Sad because this is actually the date that my father passed away 26 years ago!  I remember that day as if it were yesterday and I can't believe so much time has past since he was with us.  But I'm very thankful for the time I had with both of these amazing people!!

So today's card is in celebration of the day
and hopes of bringing a smile to my sweet husband's face for it is for him.

I found this adorable image online and knew right away I wanted to create 
a card using it as my focus!  Such a cute leprechaun!

Darlene this is an adorable little card... i'm sure hubby will smile when he sees it.... and i'm sorry for your loss and i know all too well how daunting the 17th of March can be... its the day that my grandfather went into the hospital and never came out.... and his birthday is on Friday, the 20th... yet another painful day to get through... time does pass by so fast.. it's been almost 6 years that he passed away... May 1st is that dreadful day....so proud of you though for trying to find comfort in their life and celebrating as that is what they both would have wanted you to do. Hugs my friend!
