Whimsical Wednesday "Happy St. Paddy's Day" challenge


Well, do you have your green ready to wear so you'll be "pinch proof" on St. Paddy's Day?
I have my house all decorated. We always have a fun St. Patrick's dinner at my house, complete with a hunt for the gold with my grandchildren.

This week over at Whimsical Designs our challenge theme is "Happy St. Paddy's Day", create a card or project and include something to do with St. Patricks Day: ie-green, four leaf cover, leprechaun.

Our sponsor for this week is Miriams Crafting Supplies and you can win 10 sets of pearls!!!



For my St. Patricks Day project I made Pots of Gold as favors to put on my table for my friends and family. 



They were created using a Silhouette Studio cut file. I tied green and gold shamrock charms around the pots with twine and added a label too. The label was stamped with one of Stephanies sentiment stamps from her set Whimsical Fun Vol 1 which you can purchase here. I filled them with green M & M's and chocolate filled gold coins.


Supplies used: card stock - black, shiny gold, green, vanilla; twine - my stash; stamp - Whimsical Fun Vol 1 by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Silhouette Studio cut file; glascine bags - Michaels; candy.


Now I hope you'll head on over to Whimsical Designs to see the other fabulous St. Paddy's day projects the design team has created!!!!!!

This is such a fun way to celebrate St Pat's Day. The "gold" peeking out makes the treat very inviting.

These are totally adorable. It is almost making me want to put them together for my daughters class. The only problem is I would have to make 30! Very creative Esther, and I love that you have a little get together and hunt for gold. Great family fun:)
