Join Us- For a Party- WMS Blog Waltz

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Well, I swore last year that when the March blog party came around I would have one of Claire's fabulous Irish sets.... I forgot in all the frenzy of buying the recent releases {it has been fixed and is traveling the sea to me} so..... I had to get a little creative.

 
Yes, you are right... the mouse is drinking green beer!! Decided to make a little invitation card using Make Your Mark and Join Us.  Now I realize the mug of beer is a bit on the heavy side for the wee mouse but, I never said I was a graphic artist, LOL!! The adorable hat was made from a template at Creations by AR-- you've probably seen these on Julia's blog here-- that's where I got the idea.

 
The sentiment on the inside is an Irish toast that was computer generated. Added the flourish from Join Us and another wee mouse from Make Your Mark. Check out the blog waltz- if you don't have WMS stamps- Claire has a couple freebie images in her store and another on her blog- you have until tomorrow at 1pm to join in.
 
Hope you're having a wonderful St. Patty's Day... my daughter is working but, she said they have been having fun this WE dying the beer green!! 

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!! Hoping to get a chance to pop around and see everyone's creations. Right now work is crazy- I'm working two jobs- my "partner in crime" resigned--- I do have 3 candidates so should be fixed soon!!
