Good Morning Stamping Friends! Finally getting around to posting my St. Patrick's Day cards. When I was looking at various galleries for ideas, the thought hit me....why not use it. Family and friends loved it, especially the one with the colorful striped ribbon.

The more muted one was my attempt at doodling around the letters and making a glittery punched shamrock. It's okay.

Did you know that when you wish a Happy St. Patrick's Day to someone here in the US and you want to shorten it....you say Happy St. Paddy's Day and not Happy St. Patty's Day? Why? Well, glad you asked......Patty is a girls name and Paddy is the Irish way to shorten Patrick....Paddy. It's also how Paddy Wagon got it's name....in New York so many Policmen of the day were Irish and the name just stuck. Also, in Ireland it is a religious holiday and not a drunken brawl. Just some random thoughts on the holiday.

Thanks for looking have a great day!
Cindy
