Welcome March - We're Feeling Green

Welcome March! Can you believe it? Where does the time go?! 

February always goes by so fast and it went even faster for me because I got really sick near the end (thus, no posts at the end of the month - sorry!)  I've managed to avoid the stomach flu for many years, but came down with a really bad bout which took me out for almost 5 days.  And as a mom, when mom's down, everything snowballs.  So I spent most of last week catching up - almost there now. 

So, I 'm pretty glad to see March here - a new month and spring is soon on it's way too!! YEAH!! So in celebration of March & Spring; a handful of us at Sparkle N Sprinkle decided to share some fun projects for the very first Spring Holiday coming up - St. Patrick's Day!  Even if you're not Irish, St. Paddy's Day sure brings on the feeling of spring and the card I have for you does too!

I LOVE rainbows & couldn't resist putting one together in a bunch of the sumptuous glittery colors from Sparkle N Sprinkle!  I used the transparent glitters to give it the same transparent look as a real rainbow.  Colorful & sparkly; this rainbow is the perfect accent for this fun St. Paddy's Day card.

 Don't forget to click on the pictures to see the sparkling goodness even better!

Be sure to stop by the SNS Blog to check out the other "green" projects on the SNS Blog & links to the other designers blogs that are featuring St. Patrick's Day designs!

Hope you've been inspired to create some fun & colorful St. Patrick's Day or spring cards yourself!  And I hope you've enjoyed today's card.  Be sure to stop by again soon! Thanks for spending some of your day with me!!

Until next time,

PS - Stamps & Glitter are both Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Full instructions & supplies for this card can be found in the SNS Art Gallery here.
