Not Lucky... Just Blessed!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! My daughter has a friend from school, her mom had a little baby girl today, (I should say BIG girl), she weighed 13 lbs. 13 oz. The lady has 4 kids and all of them weighed over 10 lbs. when they were born! WOW!! That's a lot of baby!! So her baby was born on St. Patrick's Day and weighed the lucky 13-13. I don't believe in luck, I believe it's just blessed! So this is my sentiment on my card today! Don't focus on the handwriting, just the message! The design idea was from Dawn McVey. I LOVE her style in cards!! I also love the way she ties her bows, I finally got one to look a little bit like hers! This ribbon was another $ bin find from Michael's, when I saw it I fell in love! I finally bought Martha Stewart's butterfly punch and it went perfect with ribbon! Hope you like it!

Paper: Best Occasions,SU! green CS, white & dark green CS
Accessories: Michael's $ bin butterfly ribbon, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, white gel pin

Love your card for the "St Pat's Day Baby", and I agree with you about being Blessed not Lucky.
I am also a big fan of Dawn McVey~she really does have the Bow thing down! and been known to CASE a few of her cards for different family/friend occasions :)

That's a BIG baby! Wowsa!

I use Photoshop CS4, but I have also used earlier versions (CS2, CS3). Photoshop Elements is a neat version that's a lot cheaper in price, and you can pretty much do everything you needed on it, but it's more limited the full version of Photoshop. You can get a free trial of it [Elements] for 30 days. Hope this helps! I'm here if you have anymore questions.
