For each petal on the shamrock This brings a wish your way -Good health, good luck, and happiness For today and every day.~Author Unknown

May your blessings outnumber The shamrocks that grow, And may trouble avoid you Wherever you go.~Irish Blessing

Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here's a drink to his health! But not too many drinks, lest we lose ourselves and then Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see them snakes again!~Author Unknown

A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have. ~Author Unknown

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, May good luck pursue you each morning and night.~Irish Blessing

Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer. ~Author Unknown

colour challenge: of course you have to use green!!...use at least two different shades of green with black and white....

luck challenge: what do you feel lucky or blessed to have in your life??? it could be a person, a favourite thing or favourite passtime that brings you great comfort...whatever it is, scrap it and tell us all about why you feel lucky to have them or it in your life...

what no scrapping challenge??? scrap about something you love to do but not must be about something else you love to do either by yourself or with your family or friends....

OTP/card challenge...for this challenge you can create an OTP item or a set of 3 need to include the items listed but they don't have to be dominant or the only things you use...we just need to be able to see them amoungst everything else you might use...if making cards each card doesn't have to have everything listed on each one..they can be spread out over the 3.....if you have any questions about this one just drop me an email.....
