St. Patrick's Day And More Blessings

Happy PINK St. Patrick's SaturDay!

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial,
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Blessings...
It's so much fun to receive these surprise packages in the mail. The one below is from Donna at Red Apple Junction she was my trading partner for March in the Tag A Month Swap at The Altered Paper blog. Donna made me a beautiful Spring tag. She also sent a tiny stamped bag filled with an assortment of ephemera to use in my creations.
 


I made the St. Patrick's Day card and tag below for a card trade with my friend Diane at 1 Card Creator.
I made the card base from recycled packing paper and freezer wrap, you can see the paper better in the photo below. The envelope was made from a thin sheet of handmade paper embedded with grasses, that I wrinkled and iron onto freezer wrap paper.

 The beautiful fleur-de-lis stamped set of tags below is a gift I received from Marcia at In Stillness And Simplicity.  They smell wonderful, Marcia sent them enclosed in a lavender organza sachet. 

What a joy to give and blessing to receive.
