Luck Day!


Happy Monday to you all!  I hope everyone is adjusting to the “spring forward” from yesterday! Thank goodness for coffee in my world!  Today over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, we are embracing the Luck of the Irish!   Be sure to head over and check out what my fellow fantabulous design team members have brewing over there, link up your own Luck of the Irish inspired project using at least ONE Cricut cut and join the party!

This little treat bag I made was super easy, yet will bring a smile to our mailman for an early St. Patty’s Day treat.  Each holiday I leave a little treat in the mailbox for him.  He has been faithfully delivering the mail in our cul-de-sac for 30 years and I just love doing a little something extra to let him know he is appreciated.


It was super easy to make, I all I did take a a treat bag from my stash I scored on Pick Your Plum, cut two shamrocks at 1.5 inches and 2 inches AND a horseshoe at 3.5 inches using Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge on card stock from Recollections.  I then used Glastique Finishing Glaze and Piccolo Pure Sparkle Gold Glitter from Globecraft and Piccolo on the horseshoe.  I set it aside to dry.  I stamped the shamrocks using gStudio mini type stamps with Close to My Heart Slate ink and inked the edges.

I then filled the bag with some goodies and then sealed shut using chevron washi tape.  I then wrapped twine from the Twinery around the bag and tied in a bow   Once the glitter was dry, I added some Pop Dots and the attached the shamrocks to the horseshoe

Super easy and fun to do!  Now head over and join the fun over at FCCB!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “keepin’ it lucky” pie with me!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
