A few details: I stamped four hearts and cut them out to make my clover. The hearts have swirls, so I went over all the swirls with green Stickles and colored them with a Marvy marker. I stamped the St. Patrick's Day sentiment directly onto the vellum tag.

Now, for my card. The idea for the challenge is to dig into your "stash". I used BasicGrey sugared collection papers which were purchased a couple of months ago and an Inkadinkado stamp that I've had for a year or so and never inked! Also from my stash are some paper flowers, brads, and epoxy stickers from Michaels. I also used a Nestabilities scalloped oval die that I just got this week. The sentiment is from K&Co. words to go.

I started with the Dutch Dare Card Challenge to use no pink or red on a love themed card, so I chose black and blue. Well, really, black and white, and the blue somehow just worked its way in there. I used the sketch from CPS. It also fits the challenge for Stamp Something to make a valentine something and Caardvarks heart challenge, so I may just link it up there as well. I heat embossed those silver hearts. I used a heart background stamp that I've had for .. ahem, a few years and had not used yet. Oh.. one more neat detail. The scallops on the heart were made by punching hole punch size circles out of cardstock and gluing them to the edge of the heart.
Accents: Paper flowers, rhinestones, Cloud9Design love stickers
Tools: Martha Stewart zig zag punch; Stampendous embossing powder (silver tinsel)

The Stamp Something challenge this week is anything with a Summer theme. What great timing since this 23 degree temp (unusual for South Georgia!!) has me thinking of warmer, brighter things. Maybe this will brighten your day too. These little penguins make my want to dance! LOL

**** NOW CLOSED****
I'm having my first ever blog candy giveaway. I had mentioned earlier here that I might do this when I hit 5,000 on the counter. That happened last week. I also woke up Friday to find that my card which I posted for sketches by Tamara was featured. That's a first for me too! Then I came home from work to check the Stamp Something challenge and found that I was selected by random.org as the winner of last week's prize! Woo hoo! On Saturday I checked my email and discovered that our local Circuit City had lowered their prices on digital cameras by 20% for the store closing. (Side note: I'm sad that so many people are losing jobs, so much that I almost feel guilty for this purchase.) I made the purchase anyway - a new Canon Rebel XSi. I've been wanting to get a digital SLR and quit with film. This camera will take the lenses I already own. You may see an improvement in my blog photos.
So, I've had a happy weekend. And I appreciate all the visits and kind comments and all the things I've won recently, so I'm returning a small token.
Here's what's included:
A Hero Arts Dot letters alphabet stamp set
Random pieces of chipboard from Basic Grey Mellow undressed
a few tags to alter
a set of nature theme sticker tags
Birthday photo die cuts
And it's all coming to you in the tin that's pictured. When I bought those, I thought they'd be great to alter for a gift tin.
To be entered to win, 1) leave a comment and tell me which card or project that you've seen on my blog or in MY SHOP is your favorite or which post you found most interesting, and 2) post a link on your blog to the candy. Candy will close on FEBRUARY 11, 2009 midnight EST.
Come back a little later. I'm posting some blog candy and will tell you why I'm celebrating.
Stamps: Inkadinkado, sentiment and heart; wings, HOTP
