Joy's Life St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop!


Welcome to The Crafty Kitten for Joy's Life's 
St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop! 

If you have come from visiting Nina at Waffle Flower then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stumble upon this post and want to start at the beginning at Joy's Life, click HERE.

The Design Team is putting on the green by featuring projects made with Joy's wonderful rubber stamps.  

Here's what I came up with!


Here's a closeup of the pot of gold. I filled it with those fun chocolate coins!  The saying is from Joy's You're So Punny stamp set.




Here's a closer look at the dog card.  I had a lot of fun making him!  The saying is from Joy's Holiday Occasions Stamps. 


Both projects were made with my Silhouette.  The pot of gold is 6"x6" and the card is 5"x7".  Instead of using Nestabilities for the ovals on the card, I used two Silhouette files and was able to size/stretch the ovals exactly as needed.

Now how about some Blog Candy??
I am going to give one lucky hopper their choice of any in stock Joy's Life stamp set. Yay!!

  You have two chances to be entered in this drawing:

1) Leave me one comment on what you think of my projects & how you celebrate St. Patrick's Day 
2) Leave me a SECOND comment if you are a follower or have become a new follower (I appreciate you all)
That's it!  Easy peasy!  

You have until March 24th to post comments.  The lucky winner of the stamp set will be announced on March 25th!

*** You're next stop on the hop is Sarabeth.  She's got a fun project waiting for you! ***

I love your little doggie Leprechaun.
The way my family celebrates St. Patrick's day is as soon as we get up in the morning we check who is not wearing green, (of course we would pinch). Green pancakes or Lucky Charms for breackfast. My daughter likes to bake green cupcakes and we go from there. Thanks for the opportunity.
