Feeling green?

Hello all!
I actually managed to combine two DT challenges for today's card which makes posting a whole lot easier :)
            Over at The Outlawz, the Friday Copics/alcohol markers team are asking you to go green and we've added the timely option of St Patrick's Day too.  This ties in nicely with the 'green for St Pat's' challenge over at The Octopode Factory so I decided to use my all time favourite Dormouse digi and merged him with a freebie St Pat's hat digi that you can get here.

                I kept it simple by just having some background text and the word "Slainte" which I cut using my Cameo - apparently this is the most used Irish expression in America!  Could that have anything to do with the fact that it is used as a drinking toast?   Hmmmm............

You can see why he's my favourite can't you?  So very cute :)

      I would like to enter this into the following challenges - 4 Crafty Chicks, Cute Card Thursday, Milk Coffee, Sassy Studio Designs, Creative BelliJen's Digi Stamps and Whimsical Designs.

Thanks so much for popping in to take a look and 'Go dte tu slan'. (may you go safe).

Love this CAS card, Dawn--you merged those two cute images perfectly! Love your coloring & the design! And I have never heard of 'Slainte', but then I don't have a lick of Irish in me, so that's probably why! :^)
Hugs, Penny

Oh my heck. This is just way too cute. I love the combo of the dormouse with the hat. Such fun and perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Great coloring and design.

I forgot to mention in the previous comment that I, too, am very, very weary of this horrid weather.

Tress said...

So cute! Love how you turned this dormouse into a St. Patty's Day image!

Jo said...

I love the top hat on the little guy. Your green combo is beautiful.
