Irish Blessing

How do you share your cards? Are you one that mails them out frequently or do you have other outlets? I donate cards for fundraisers - mostly through our church - and also donate a large container with about 2 dozen cards at our annual Christmas brunch at work.  I keep a basket of cards on the table in the nurses' station where I work and have them for sale. This helps to reimburse my habit...errr...hobby - lol!  Yesterday, one of the nurses asked about St. Patrick's Day cards.  I have very few stamp options for this holiday, but I do have two Irish blessing stamps from Verve's Blessings stamp set.  I'm featuring one of them of my card today.

I accented the quote with florals from Reverse Confetti's Blooms 'n Buds stamp set and die cut them with matching dies.  The background was a leftover panel from a day I was experimenting with alcohol inks.  Here's what else I used...

STAMPS: Blessings (Verve), Blooms 'n Buds (Reverse Confetti).
PAPER: Enchanted Evening (PTI), Cucumber Crush (SU), White (PTI).
INK: Cucumber Crush, Dapper Denim, Night of Navy (SU), Bumblebee, Tangerine (Reverse Confetti).
DIES: Striped Sentiment Strip Cover Die-Namic (MFT), Stitched Circles Die-Namics (MFT), Blooms 'n Buds (Reverse Confetti).

Quote from 365 Days of Wonder:
FEB 20 - "Whatever you are, be a good one".
