This blog hop is all about making something for your lucky charm.
Well I couldn't talk about lucky charms without including my husband of 46 years. Although it is not my main project for today's hop, I put together a quick card to wish him Happy St. Patrick's Day. Here "she" is.
This lady is one of my favorite stamps. She actually comes with the sentiment Hang Loose (if you get her meaning) but I masked that to change the sentiment. Stamp by Emerson.
Now on to my main project. The lucky charm I am celebrating today is my sister Phyllis. As kids we were not that close as she is 9 years older than me and was usually charged with babysitting the terrible todler. As we grew older we have become best friends and before we moved to Florida, spent many weekends at each other's house. Lucky me, in 2002 she moved to Florida too and for a while we lived on the same street. We moved a short ways away but still talk every day and see each other about once a week. Some of her favorite things are taking pictures, decorating for ANY holiday, and participating in golf cart parades. She lives in a mobile home community of more that 1100 homes so these parades are something else. What better gift than a mini album for all her St. Patrick's Day Parade pictures. Here it is.
Pockets were made with designer paper from Amy Butler
Side tags made on my gypsy welding a shamrock (PDDU) to a 5.75 TBBM tag
Lots of different embellishments.
See the video below and I will walk you through it.<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/wCYRgjP_kKY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
