I only have {GOOGLE} eyes...

...for YOU!

Oh, sheesh - here I go, again!

I can't HELP it ~ Google eyes are hypnotic! AND, .... {a little confession} I love Sponge Bob!

Well, I love the way he's drawn... I love his EXPRESSIONS! Those eyes! What feelings are conveyed by a couple of well placed spots and highlights.... Oh, he's the best!

And, I love St. Patty's Day and playing with my WPLUS9design stamps by Dawn Woleslagle....!

I used this large, teardrop, plaid petal/tree image, from Dawn's Funky Flowers collection, to make this fun shamrock.... Then I paper~pieced some highlights and accent in the center of the shamrock... it just got a little lonely... SO, google-eyes happened!

Then, I had fun combining one of Dawn's sentiments with Stampin' Up's! GO GREEN, St. Patty's Day stamp, and some retired bits from S/U! and Hero Arts.... I adore a little word play... {are you shocked?} hee hee

I stole a little time this weekend to craft with some spectacular ladies and local talent, here in Sonoma County... We've got some GREAT gals in this lovely scrappin' community - I don't mean to brag, but I'm just sayin'.... {Contact ME if you're ever going to be in the area - We'd love to have you!} WHAT FUN TO SCRAP and ENJOY the company of other, hilarious and equally crazed and kind, KIND, genuine and KIND, crafters ... I just can't get over how nice paper craftin' pals are! We're good folk... we really are!

Ya know... I have a packet of those eyeballs!!!! Super cute card! Love the shamrock:)

So... Sponge Bob has lots of fans in our house...! My husband got tounge tied during a Cranium Game and called him Square Bob. He is now called Square Bob at Casa Sexton, and then we all crack up!!

Dawn said...

Oh Elise this is too cute. You know I didn't even recognize my stamps. LOL I was reading and saw "Dawn's stamps" and was like "wha, where?" and then I SAW it! LMAO! Super fun, super cute, and I bet my boys would love to make these with me! Way to go girl!

First of all, unlike you, I CANNOT stand Sponge Bob. There is definitely something wrong with that character... well the whole cartoon really. The crazy part is that my M LOVE LOVE LOVE SB and because we have no TV subscription whenever she finds a place with an active cable line she'd look for SB and watch it. The other unfortunate part for me is that there's not only 30 min. of SB but SB after SB after SB... WTH?!?!?! So yes, SB and I don't get a long.

Besides SB, your card is fabby. Oh so creative and green in many ways. LOVE it!!!

Dana Gustafson said...

Me eyes are sore from starin at......those googles! ;) You always rock the st patty's day joy and this card is no exception! luck o the irish to ya, may the road rise to meet ya and all that other good irish fortune(whattdya want? I'm italian!) :) smooches!

Anonymous said...

Lol... I have to agree with Savitri on this one girly...SB's voice makes me cringe! LoL! I think it's in part b/c my college roommate was obsessed with him - she had the comforter set, and CAR seat covers and all... yea. An adult. Lol! But regardless... you card is SO CUTE! I love, love, love your circular center panel! The little sky and grass - it's all just so sweet! Love it!
