An Irish Gnome

      Today I have a St. Patrick's Day card to share and I'll have another later this week.  Between the two cards, I made a total of 30 cards, 15 of each.  

     These were for another of those "Care Packages" which a group of moms puts together to send off to their out-of-state, college kids.  Each month, a group of about 30+ moms get together and each of them brings 30-35 all-the-same items which fit into a particular theme chosen the month before.  Each mom then takes 1 of the various items, and puts it into a box which they then mail off to their own collage kid.  

     My daughter and I got involved with this group when my youngest granddaughter went off to attend Texas Tech last fall.  The theme for the March box was obviously St. Patrick's Day and I did two versions of the cards.  This is the first one I'm sharing.



     That's it for today.  See you tomorrow.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

This is adorable, Connie. Love the leprechaun image. What a fabulous idea to have a group that shares their craft with others. Thanks for sharing at Colorful Options March Challenge.
