Four Seasons Challenge - SPRING

Hello Friends

Over at the Four Seasons Challenge Blog, we are ready for a change in seasons! 
For the next 3 months our theme will be

Anything Goes - SPRING

check out this fabulous inspiration board I have created to help inspire you . . .


 With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, that's the inspiration I drew from today's board.  St. Patty's Day has 2 significant meanings for me ... first of all, my husband is half Irish and my Mother In Law was a true Redheaded Irish Lady ... what a spitfire!!  LOL   And, secondly, my dad died on St. Patty's Day way back in 1989 (ugh seems like yesterday).  

So, even though I don't have a lot of St. Patrick's day stamps/dies/etc.  I do have a fabulous pad of paper that covers ALL the holiday that I picked up at Hobby Lobby by The Paper Studio called Four Seasons 3 and a few stickers along with this beautiful Irish Blessing stamp by My Sentiments Exactly!

Here's another peek . . .


 If you haven't checked out our new FOUR SEASONS CHALLENGE BLOG (a monthly seasonal themed challenge) yet, PLEASE pop over and join in the fun.  And don't forget our latest challenge blog adventure ... PEACE ON EARTH CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG (a bi-monthly anything goes Christmas challenge).

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!

As always . . .



  1. Such fun paper for this month and I do love that Irish blessing!

  2. Fabulously fun St Patrick's Day card, I have Irish in me from my mother's side, she did her Christmas Tree (it was a white one with green lights) decorated with St Patrick's day ornaments every year and had an Irish Santa collection! She always loved the Irish blessing!!

  3. Darlene, your boards are always so inspirational and I always want to play along RIGHT NOW!! I love your card with that wonderful blessing and the beautiful shamrock paper. Lots of redheads in my family too!! Vicky x

  4. Your card couldn't be more perfect for St. Patrick's Day! All those shamrocks are pretty cute in their different patterns. Hooray for spring (soon)!

  5. This is such a fun card, Darlene. I searched my stash for a four-leaf clover or shamrock and couldn't find one. I'm still convinced I own at least one, but can't find it or them to save my life...lol. Your art is always so inspiring. Have a wonderful week.

  6. I love your inspiration board! And your St Patrick's Day card and sentiment is just Gorgeous!

  7. Shiver me shamrocks this is a cute card! I love all those great shamrocks along with that classic Irish sentiment! Great job!

  8. I love all of the green. It's a great clean looking card. I'm hoping all those blessings are going straight to Ukraine. [Bunny]

  9. I love the background paper you used for this and, of course, the sentiment is the best. I agree with Bunny. Sending blessings to Ukraine. Thanks for joining us at International Art & Soul. Maggie, DT
