Happy St. Patrick's Day -- To the Irish in All of Us

So, what do you do when you receive a card swap for St. Patrick's day when you forgot you signed up for the swap? You think green, of course! My impromptu Irish holiday card came from a Sizzix Heart Step Card Die and some pre-cut paper mats that I got from my friend Becky. She gave them to me back in January.I created my Shamrock by cutting two shades of green from hearts in the die set and cutting the messages from the March Flourish paper in the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish collection. It turned out pretty well, I think. So, Top of the Mornin' To Ya

Lighthouse Card

When it's not a stamp and not a die cut, what is it? It's an OUTLINE STICKER! I crated this porject for a card swap. I love the way it turned out . . . and there's twelve more stickers that I can use for future nautical, By the Sea, and Sun on the Beach projects. Here's what i used to create this card:
