Friday St. Patrick's Day Card/Mini

Happy Friday and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I am so glad that today is the weekend!  Even though we are sooo busy I am still glad that I don't have to go to work!  LOL!!  Do you have any plans?  We are sports sports and more sports.  Saturday both hubby and I are running the kids all over and then on Sunday it is all sports for Jack.  Both basketball and baseball for him in one day!  He is going to be one tired puppy!  No scrapping for me this weekend!  LOL!!

This weekend is St. Patrick's day.  If you didn't know already my maiden name is O'Brien.  So with a name like Mary Pat O'Brien you can bet we celebrate St. Patty's day!  For the holiday I made a card/mini album for my mom.  To make this I used a tag image from the Silhouette gallery and copied it to make two.  I then welded them together and cut it out.  I then folded the card in half.  You could make as many as you wanted to make a little mini album.

I used the St. Patrick's day collection from Moxxie.  When you open the card I have a photo of hubby and the boys and then I used the awesome rub ons to decorate the inside.  I love how it turned out!  I used the chevron ribbon from The Stringery for the little tag.

I would definitely think that someone named Mary Pat O'Brien would celebrate St. Patricks! Super cute card. How fun that it doubles as a mini. I'm sure your mom loved it!

Katie said...

I love being off on the weekends, even when they are busy. Its just nice having the break from work!

The card is great!

I was so upset because we couldn't celebrate this year, because we were packing. And its my last St. Patrick's Day as "O'Neill". Next year, my name won't be Irish at all :(
