CAS Watercolour Challenge: Luck o' the Irish!

 
I'm a student of hard work, and never relied on luck... but when it comes to friends?  Why don't I just let this little red-haired Irish Lass do the talking...

Inside: I must have the Luck o' the Irish to be so blessed!

Do you recognize this little gal?  You might be thinking she looks familiar … okay, she's normally sporting a pretty pair of wings.  If you guessed MFT's Butterfly Kisses, you'd be right.  I stamped her, embossed it, die cut using the coordinating dies, and quickly snipped her wings... she was okay with it.  Especially after giving her those little shamrock's for her headband!

May I give you a little closeup?  You'll see the glimmer o' gold!


She's heading over to join my friends at CAS Watercolour Challenge... thanks, Julia - what a fun challenge you've given us this month!

Hope you are having a wee bit of Spring-like weather where you are!  I know I'll be grateful for every bit of sunshine you'll bring to me!

I am so glad the cute little lady didn't mind her wings being snipped off! However, the headband is adorable, so no wonder she didn't mind x. Glorious green and gold and a super cute card x.

She's just adorable! Love those shamrocks!

Lisa Elton said...

She's been grounded, but I don't think she minds. I think she's feeling a bit sassy in her holiday headband! Super cute Michele!

LeAnne said...

Well, I am certainly wishing I had a cute little shamrock headband like hers...but maybe it would not look as cute as hers, perched in her pretty red hair! I love everything about this!

TK said...

What a sweetie, and I LOVE her shamrock headband!!! Reminds me of those headbands that have the elements on springs, wobbling all over -- love those too! Here's some sunshine for you -- we were in upper 60's today but supposed to get another dusting of snow on Sunday, with lows of 20's! That's because I just pruned my roses... doh

Very very cute little redheaded Irish lass, looks really cool with her shamrock head back, great card Michele, and thanks for sharing with CAS Watercolour, Robyn

Jeanne said...

Absolutely delightful card, Michele! I think your watercoloring looks fantastic and I adore the shamrock headband. Excellent card!

Bonnie said...

Looks like she found that pot of gold, Michele! How adorable!

The shamrock headband is just too cute! The background wash in gold makes a huge difference! An adorable card, Michele!

Kara Lynne said...

Oh my, is she darling! I love her headband! I think my girls wore those types of headbands well beyond the "appropriate" age - lol! Thanks for your comment about my Lili of the Valley cards. They only do digis now but I happen to know a certain Michigander who owns a LARGE collection of their stamps *cough*Marcia*cough

Super cute St Patty’s alteration!

Your gratitude is duly noted and I hope Spring comes to soon. For just a taste, were supposed to be at 78 degrees today. Much too early for that but, thankfully, I was able to fertilize the lawn this week.
After being MIA for so long, it's good to see such a bonnie Irish lass. Your diligent altering makes her perfect for this challenge...think it's a winner.

What a darling lil girl with her shamrock headband. Love the shimmer of gold and she doesn't look at all unhappy about the wing snip.

Sweet! Great "cutting" to create this adorable little Irish girl, Michele. Those shamrocks in her hairband are too cute! :) Love the gold accents ... she must have found her pot of gold! xx

Bobby said...

I have a friend who loves to wear bobble headdresses like that. This is so cute, Michele, and perfect for the challenge.

Barb Ghig said...

Well, I think she looks better with those darling shamrocks in her headband...who needs wings when you have such a great accessory? Another really adorable card, Michele...and your coloring is perfect!!!

With a name like Callahan and with the Big Guy having a birthday on St. Patrick's Day I just may have dressed my daughter like this on March 17th.....more than once.....adorable!

What a cutie, Michele ... especially so with her sweet shamrock headband and the touch of gold ... she must've been at the end of the rainbow! Hugs, Anita :)
