The QUEEN of GREEN!

I had to laugh out loud at one of the comments I received on yesterday's post. I told you all that I was going to celebrate St Patty's Day by posting a GREEN card each day this week. My stamping friend Sarah (Loobylou) from down under in Australia said she already considered me the "Queen of GREEN"! I guess she's noticed I tend to use the color green quite often.Today's card is definitly GREEN, huh? It's 4" square and I've used the new little smiley turtle stamp my sweet DIL Jami {Crazy Daisy Creations} bought for me in Hawaii. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and paper-pieced the shell.

Thanks for blogging by. I'll have another green card for you tomorrow! Smiles, Pam :)

This is so sweet, Pam. I love the St. Paddy's card below as well...fun, fun! Green is definitely one color that I don't use enough...I'll have to make a point to try and grab some green more often.
