I Messed Up! Easter Card using Springtime Joy from Stampin' Up!

You've read the subject line, and I know what you're thinking... you messed up? Where? Sometimes it's hard to fix mistakes when you're crafting, but it's definitely not impossible.

Lucky Me... Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day! Today I'm sharing one of the cards I made for St Patrick's Day. You can view the other card I made by clicking here! I did some "punch art" to create the clover, using the current Heart Punch. I cut a thin scrap to serve as the stem. The adorable "Lucky Me" sentiment comes from the Game On stamp set.
