Hero Arts Challenge - Month of February

The Hero Arts Blog Challenge this month is either flowers or St. Patricks Day. The flowers is pretty easy but the St. Patricks Day takes a little more thought as there are no St. Patty's day stamps from HA other than the sentiment. Here is my take on that part of the challenge:

I used the heart flourish stamp with green ink to simulate the clover feel. Having said all of that about trying to come up with a St. Patty's Day card take a look at Heather Maria's card here. It is gorgeous and she used poetry about Ireland in her card.

Makes me want to go back to the inking board and try again. Unfortunately... Going to be a busy day with a superbowl party, church and picking up and dropping off kids. Have a lovely day and stay dry and warm if you are in the midst of the snow!
