A Little Bit o' Green for St. Patrick's Day

Two stamping friends and I had a St. Patrick's Day sale at our church this past Sunday and I wanted to share with you the things I made for it.

I got these cute little black pots and shamrock shot glasses at my local Five Below Store.  I dressed them up with a little tag and some wrinkled seam tape!
I stuck the plastic shamrocks (also from Five Below) on the pots with a glue dot.


I filled both with Creme de menthe Hershey Kisses (special for St. Pat's day) and Chocolate Gold coins (found both at Target - I had trouble finding ANY St. Pat's candy items - the stores have all had Easter candy out since just after Valentine's Day!).  You can see the white shamrocks on the shot glasses a little better in this close up!

And I made some cards - this one uses the Tim Holtz Embossing Folder called Bricked.  The stamps are all from a set called Irish Blessings from My Sentiments Exactly.
The little foam shamrocks are from Michaels.  Clean and simple and easy to duplicate!
Thanks for stopping by today! and Happy St. Patrick's Day 3.17.12!   (the day when EVERYONE is Irish!)
