Tickled GREEN to be here!

Hello, lovelies!

OMG! I have climbed the MOUNTAIN and reached the other side! Busy, busy, busy.... I don't want to ruin the mood, but I'll just say the mountain in question.... starts with "t" and ends with "a-x-e-s!" {Blech!} And just when I thought it was time to reward myself with FUN paper-play, a round of stomach un-pleasantries whirled through Ranch Durenberger... and, yeah. Not much fun there. But today the sun has broken through some VERY dark clouds and the shamrocks have pushed their proud green leaves through the considerable mud and muck... so, YEAHOOOO! It's March, babies! Here's to lots of good luck to us all! Kick up your heels and celebrate some spring! The signs are out there!

Just a note on ANOTHER celebration of the IRISH! {50% of my heritage ingredients... just sayin'}..... I know...! Some of you were creeped out by this Leprechaun, in his day. But, I *heart* him! He does the job, IMHO... I busted out a way-old, but highly coveted background stamp from S/U!, from long ago ~ it's the Irish Blessing! And then I just got all shamrocky and green with MORE stamps from Dawn and her WPLUS9 design studio stamps! Such FUN!

Whoopee! I don't know if I can still kick up my heels like this guy, but that's how I feel, now that the "mountain" is behind me! Thanks for always being patient with me when I step away from the blog to accomplish BIG GIRL things.... Hope to catch up with y'all soon!
