St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Y'all!  I have made some tags for my daughter's kids in hopes that they will enjoy a little green come the 17th.  And yes, I put a little pocket on the back for a secret message and maybe a little something green for the luck of the Irish!!!

This is Nicole's book mark card - she had a purple streak put in her hair for Christmas  - I know she is glad that her Mama took her to a beauty parlor instead of having Nanny do it!!!!!! Nicole was just inducted into the National Honor Society - way to go Nicole!

This card is for Miss Caroline who has always preferred "boy" toys to girl things.  She recently was in a contest with 5 other kids - they had to write their own play, make all the props and backdrops and their own costumes.  It really was grand and her team won!

This is for Joe - happy Joe the only boy in the family!  He is so very sweet and there was a time he said he would marry me.  But now he has changed his mind because you are NOT supposed to marry someone in your family.  Besides, as he told me last week, he is just too  young to get married. 

And this is for Sweet Sarah - did I say sweet?  Sara is the youngest and believe me she plays second fiddle to no one.  She will be 5 this month and she love to prance and dance!!!!!

Okay gang -- I always get disappointed when I post because my colors never come out true to life no matter how hard I try.  I hope y'all have a Nanny that will stuff a little green in your pocket.
Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment!
Sandy

I think they all look great and the colours look great. I am a pretty hopeless colourer... need to take some courses!
My favorite is the leprechan!

These came out so cute Sandy! I especially love the fourth one (I saw that image earlier this week and need to get it, I took Irish dance as a child). They all came out great, and I think the pocket for some green is genius! Your grands will love this, you are such a wonderful grandma to them, they are so lucky to have you!
