Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!

Oh Rainy Day! It has been pouring here for three straight days and after tonight it will be three nights too! Along with the pounding rain we have had strong winds and lots of flooding. I should be sick of all of it but I figure for it being March in New England it could be worse, this could all be snow and we would be buried in it until June! Tomorrow we should see some clearing and then sun and warm temps into the 60's by the weekend. All this rain makes for a good crafting time.

This card is for week 2 of Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge. I hope you all got a chance to play along with us last week. The cards were all wonderful, so many talented ladies out there!
This week the challenge is to make a card to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! I am Irish so it was always a day for a dinner of corned beef and cabbage and lots of wearing of green. All of the lady's cards this week are sure to inspire you to play along with us! So dig out your Basic Grey Paper and start creating.

When I saw this cute image from Sassy Cheryl's of a boy in a kilt trying to play the bag pipes I fell in love with it. Knew I had to have it for this card. Her digis are so cute that I had to buy a few more so you'll be seeing those soon on my cards.

This card fits the following challenges

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge #2-This week the challenge is a St. Patrick's Day card and don't forget to use Basic Grey paper on your creation!
