CTMH Cards 3/17/15 & Enough Green, Already!

First, here are the cards we made at Joyce's CTMH card workshop this afternoon....

Whew! that was a lot of work!


Now, let's get to the green.  I know today is St. Patrick's Day.  I will be making corned beef and cabbage for dinner.  Why?  No clue.  Mostly because I like it and while it isn't one of my DH's favorites, he will humor me once a year.  
(I really cheated this year.  I went to the deli at the market, asked to see what the corned beef looked like, it was beautiful, had them cut me a 1" slice, and that's dinner.  I just wasn't into cooking corned beef for hours.  Plus, they sell it in those vacumn sealed packages and you can't tell how lean or fatty the meat actually is.)
  Many of the current challenges want to see green cards, or St. Patrick's Day themed cards i.e. leprechauns, shamrocks, luck, pot of gold...  I haven't seen one with a snake theme.  Didn't St. Patrick chase the snakes out of Ireland?   If you're curious about the snake issue, I felt compelled to google it and found this very interesting.  Be that as it may.  Personally, I have never sent a St. Patrick's Day card to anyone.  But I have made one, in honor of the occasion and to enter in the plethora (That was one of my father's favorite words.  Miss you, Dad.) of challenges requesting it.
I've used a Doodle Pantry digi for the shamrock maze and sentiment.

I also discovered he is the patron Saint of Engineers, which my dad was (he passed away on Dec. 30th, so I'll echo you: miss you, Pa!). Wonderful showcase here, and especially: Thank you for sharing at The Pink Elephant *Pinch Me* challenge!
