Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - Challenge #3 - P is for Paddy

That's right snarky sisters, St. Patrick's Day (and my 7th wedding anniversary) will soon be upon us. To celebrate (we like to start early) our third SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS challenge will honour all things Irish, green or St. Patrick's Day related.

As you read this post I will be somewhere in the southern US heading to Florida. We are taking a 5 day cruise from Ft Lauderdale on Monday and for some reason decided to drive from Southern Ontario to Florida...ROAD TRIP!!!!!

I'd also like to send out a great big green shout out to my snarky sister CHRIS for managing all the SoSS stuff while I get my toes in the water and ass in the sand.

Yeah, so...St. Patrick's Day is also our wedding anniversary, every year I make my hubby some kind of weird combination anniversary and St. Patrick's Day card...and as you may recall from our Anti Valentine challenge...I am not the world's most lovey dovey romantic kinda here's this year's card:

Remember those 6800 sequins I bought not so long ago??? I used a few more on this card...yay me!!! I think I had the most fun making the pot with punches (1 3/8" circle punch &large oval punch) and sticking on all the sequins. Although long nails, glue dots and sequins popping like freakin' tiddly winks gets a wee bit frustrating!!

Get out! St. Paddy's is your anniversary?! How frickin awesome is that! Happy Anniversary to you crazy kids! Thanks for the shout out, although, seriously, you did most of the work!
Now onto your card: I absolutely LOVE this card! The Kevinator better love it too! Can't get over that you you made the pot with die cuts! Holy crap! That's insanely genius! Enjoy your vaca!

The DIY pot o' gold is brilliant, Donna! St Patrick's Day AND your anniversary... wishing you the luck of the Irish? ;)

Shari Trumbull said...

Absolutely Fantastic, Donna! Love how you can combine the two occasions--You have a Fabulously Snarky sense of humor! Clever use of the sequins! Perfect pot o'gold! Thanks for sharing! XOXO-Shari

I think St. Patrick's Day is why we nixed the 17th. I wanted to get married on the 13th, which was a Friday that year, hubby said no. We went for the middle and ours is the 15th (which coincides with spring break since I work at a college). Anyway, have a great anniversary and enjoy getting sand in your bum and water on your toes.

Fun card! And I think it is a brilliant idea to use gold sequins for the pot of gold. That's one of those "duh" moments for me!

Good grief, you must have the patience of a saint to glue on all those individual sequins! I love how this turned out though, so your efforts were all well worth it! Happy wearin' o' the green!
