Wearin' O the Green

For the
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

It's Day Two of the New Release Previews at....

Today we are sneak peeking the new set designed
by Jenny Suchin.

This set is called 'Owl See You in the Spring'

It's been a long time since I spent time creating a card for
St. Patrick's Day.  With a mother-in-law and father-in-law originally
from Northern Ireland, you would think I would have occasion to do so.

I originally created this card with the idea of being able to detach the
'bookmark' but ended up permanently attaching it to the card.
It would be so easy to make this a card with a use-able bookmark
and could have any theme imaginable.

How would you like to win this set before it goes on sale?
All you have to do is 
visit each of the TCM designer's blogs and leave a comment.

There are two more releases to preview before the stamps go on sale
so make sure you plan to stop by again tomorrow to see what's next!

Don't forget to leave a comment and I'll see you again soon!

Project Recipe: 
Patterned Paper: green gingham from A Muse Studio
Stamps: Owl See You in the Spring from The Craft's Meow
Ink: Bamboo Leaves by Memento, Adirondack Mushroom by Ranger,
Memories ArtPrint Brown by Stewart Superior
Embellishments: ribbon from American Crafts

As soon as I saw this I thought "cool bookmark" and was sad to read that you atrtached it permanently. *pout* But the whole LO is super and I love the looped ribbon top.
