Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!  Today I am sharing on oldie but goodie that I made a few years ago with the TotallyTess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.  The message “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Since  I live in Boston i will pass on a little Boston history!  When I first moved to Boston in 1991 (yes, 26 years ago) I was in awe of the history and all of the historical sites that I was seeing every day!  I was working in Charlestown in the Navy Yard and saw the ship the Constitution every day.  I was driving by Bunker Hill every day.  I learned that I love to learn about the history of our country and the areas of Boston. 

My biggest shock was when I found that St. Patrick’s Day is a State Holiday!  Not because it is St. Patrick’s Day but because it is evacuation Day.  Do you know what Evacuation day is?  If you live in Massachusetts, you know..

It is the day that the British evacuated Boston following the end of the Revolutionary War!

Have a great day today and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day with a little green beer!

And Happy Stamping!


Happy St Patrick’s Day

st paddy's dayHappy St. Patrick’s Day!!  Since today is Throwback Thursday, I found this oldie but goodie card that I made a few years ago for St. Patrick’s Day.

The card base and primary color on this card is Garden Green with Garden Green ink.  The orange color is Tangerine Tango and of course, the third color for Ireland is White!.

If you are a user of Stampin’ Up! products, you know that each year certain items retire from the catalog to make room for new products.  This card dates back a few years so some of the items used to make this card that are now retired.

The Square Lattice embossing folder was used.  The border punch Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch was used.  I do miss the fancy border punches!  But each year Stampin’ Up! brings out new and most times better products…

Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!
