St. Patrick's Day Note Cards

Cards
Hello everyone! St. Patrick's Day is less that 2 weeks away, so last night I made a few notecards to send my friends. The design is a four leaf clover made from tiny hearts.

Paper
You will need 5 different patterns of scrapbook paper, solid cardstock and blank notecards.

Ovals
Cut out a large oval from cardstock.

Card
Place on the front of your notecard.

Hearts
Cut out four tiny hearts from scrapbook paper.

Hearts
Glue onto oval.

Hearts
I also added a decorative border with a black pen, around each heart.

Hearts
Add a stem.

Circle
Cut out a tiny circle from scrapbook paper.

Card
Glue in center of hearts. Hot glue a small bow on the stem.

Card
I wrote "I'm lucky..." on the front.

Card
And "to have a friend like you!" on the inside.

Cards
There are a lot of possible variations, so have fun and use your imagination!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday. After our schoolwork is done, I'm going to clean and oil the kitchen cabinets, mop the kitchen floor, and somewhere in there, Grace would like to go get a hair cut. I'll talk to you soon!

Ok Kelli, those are so sweet. I hope to improve my correspondence habits - it's one of my goals this year. You are my example.
Yes, that ws our water garden you saw in the photo. The fish is spouting and there are at least 3 great big goldfish still swimming around. That pond was nearly frozen solid a couple of times this winter.

Ok I'll take Grace to get a hair cut & you come over here & clean my cabinets & kitchen up!
I'm picking up limbs, washing & hanging out clothes, & at some point today I have to make a carrot cake for my neighbor's birthday. Oh & guess what.....Danny is bringing The Little Package home this afternoon!! She gets to stay with us this weekend...of course I have to work but it will be nice seeing her in the mornings & evenings. Danny gets all the fun! The cards are beautiful!
