An Irish Owl - Colour Q #128



So while purusing the grocery store yesterday, I wandered about the floral department and came across adorable little potted Shamrock plants. I always look for little inexpensive ways to let my boys' teachers know that I appreciate them and all that they do for my children. I grabbed 2 up and when I got home, I decided they needed a little dressing up for St. Patrick's Day. I pulled out my new stamps from The Craft's Meow - Owl See You in Spring. ADORABLE! I diecut two PTI Tag Sale #5 tags for each floral pick and sandwiched a wooden BBQ skewer in between. Man, that Scor-tape doesn't mess around. I stuck then together, and they weren't even, but it was STUCK and I was afraid to ruin them (since it was after midnight and I was running out of time!) Oh well, proof that they were handmade, huh? :)

The boys took them to school day since we are going away for the weekend and they won't see their teachers before the holiday. They were so excited this morning. They love giving presents and much as I do :)
