I actually traced and cut the shamrock shapes and it took SO much longer than when I use the cute, little paper punches that I'm a liiittlle too much in love with, ha. But eventually I had a good bunch.
Then I received this lovely card from my friend, Koru Kate from Koru Wedding Style!
I also tried coloring some carnations...
and they did take on a slight green tint:
And I embroidered a little tea towel:
and brought some gifts to St. Pat's dinner.
Here's my parents' dog Guinness hoping for a treat. They brought him home around St. Pat's Day 2 years ago, so he got an Irish name.
And then it was corned beef and cabbage time with Irish soda bread and (green) beer. Good luck and good health for the year!
