Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge! Join me! www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I have loved sharing the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge with you every Friday.  Even though the sketches will conclude at the end of March, there are still some great sketch challenges ahead… like this one!

Some things to remember about the challenge….

  • The colors mean nothing –get creative!
  • The square can be anything – you name it!  
  • That border could be a stamped image, Designer Series Paper, or an embossed image

So, your challenge is to create something with this layout and then mail it to a friend!  What good is a card that you keep to yourself?

Let me share a couple of cards with you using the sketch for this weekend….

I am just crazy about flamingos.  They are just the most awesome bird out there.  I created this card using the Pop of Paradise stamp set.

A great card and a great way to say “You’re a true friend”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I’m not Irish so I don’t know a lot about this holiday but a friend of mine share this on Facebook and I found it very interesting.  I thought I would pass it along.

A wee bit of “St. Patrick” history. He wasn’t Irish. He was an English slave to the Irish when he was younger. The Irish were Druids. When he found his freedom he had a burden for the lost souls in Ireland. He went back to the place where he was a slave as a missionary and brought them Jesus. The Druids worshiped nature. He used the 3 leaf clover to explain the trinity to them. One plant 3 leaves. Just like the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. One God three entities. Then some one brought a 4 leaf clover to him. “explain this”. His response was that this is you when you accept Christ. They live and commune with your soul. So that is how the 4 leaf clover is “lucky”.

Another historical thing we see on St Patrick’s day is the phrase “May the luck of the Irish be with you”… but it’s not at all about luck! During the great potato famine many Irish moved to America. They were hard workers. Any business that has Irish employees prospered because they were driven people to succeed in their new country. The business men would tell each other “may the luck of the Irish be with you” meaning may you be lucky enough to be able to hire many Irish so you will succeed.

So there ya go. St.Patrick’s has nothing historical about pinching people when they are not wearing green or drinking green beer.

It’s back to taxes this weekend for the Stewart. Don’t you wish you were me?  Well, as the meme says, “I’d Rather Stamp!”  That’s what IRS really means…. at least in my house.  We just didn’t get as much done last weekend as we hoped.  Too many interruptions I guess.

Have a wonderful weekend my stamping peeps!  See you all back here on Monday!
