Saint Patrick's day card made with Whimsie Doodles digital stamp

Saint Patrick's day is coming up and trying not to wait 'til the last minute, I've made this card for my mother with the cute Whimsie Doodles Feeling Lucky digital stamp.

My paper is from Sassy Designs Ireland and Holidays digital paper packs. See my little bow? It's a new die I recently bought from the French company Toga. It cuts like a dream and is so cute. I think I'll be using this one a lot.

We have a new Cultura shop in our area. I say that and yet it's actually about a 45 minute drive away. I love these stores. They're a French chain, and they have everything I like—books, music, crafting and art supplies, art classes. I can easily spend a day in one.  The crafting supplies are mostly French brands, lots of Toga, which I like, although, I do wish they had a bit more American and British products. Still, considering there's been NO store at all close to me with this type of selection, it's an improvement. If you're wondering where to buy craft and scrapbooking supplies in the Geneva, Switzerland area, this is the place to go.

Digital Stamp—Whimsie Doodles Feeling Lucky
Color—Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 colored pencils

  5. You did a FABULOUS job of coloring this little leprechaun, Shani! I love it! The new bow die is equally enchanting. And if you say it mails well, I believe you. I've held off on getting one of these dies because I thought the bow would smush in the mail.

    The new shop you visited sounds great! It must be disappointing not to have the craft stores we all take for granted here in the US around you.

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend! xoxo
