Who Isn’t Irish Today?

Whether your family tree sprouts from the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland — or it's merely wishful thinking on this most Irish of days — there's a bit of the blarney in all of us.

Did you wear a shamrock today? Or tacky green beads? Or a green shirt? If you did, there were millions of people keeping you company today.

Along with my 100%-genuine-sold-only-in-Ireland shamrock (really!), I sported a distinctly Irish package of TicTacs.Shamrock1

This was made with Stampin' Up! punches and a bit of ribbon. Aye, tis too much fun!

Punches used:
1 3/8 inch circle, 1/2 inch circle, 3/4 inch circle, scallop punch (the orange hair), word window punch (for the hat brim and the ears), 5-petal flower (used two of the petals for the moustache), key tag (hat), 1/4 inch square (retired) and 1/4 inch circle (retired).

The eyes were highlighted with Stampin' Up!'s white gel pen – which is the only gel pen that has never gotten "plugged up" on me! I used 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon on the hat.

The Irish gent is attached to the wrapper with dimensionals. Here's my wee lad undressed, as it were…


You can find these wonderful punches on page 184 and 185 of the Spring/Summer catalog. Pick out a few for your collection – click here to go to my website to order now.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
