Luck of the Irish 2 day Blog Hop Day 1- St. Patrick's Cricut Card

Welcome to the very first Luck of the Irish 2 day Blog Hop

March 17th at 9:00 a.m. through March 18th at 11:30 p.m.  If you just lucked upon this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

We're so excited to being doing this hop, and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented folks. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop.

This hop runs from Mar. 17 - Mar 18, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what BLOG CANDY you could possibly WIN!! Come back 

both days to see some new projects.
The Blog Candy for my blog is for the following Springtime embellishments.  I would ask that you leave a comment and be a follower to participate in the random drawing which will be the morning of March 19th.   There is also a grand prize drawing- which is posted below. 

The project I made for today is a card  I made for some Cricut Message board friends.  

The title came from page 67 MS Seasonal cart and was cut at 3 Inches. 

The cricut head is from page 22 of Cricut Everyday and was cut at 3 inches. The cricut cart (page 52-2 Inches) and box (page 51- 2 ½ inches)were also cut from Cricut Everyday.  
The hat is from PDDU at 1 inch page 21. 
The pot is from Simply Charmed page 33 and was cut at 3 ½ inches. 
I added ribbon from M’s, Gold Stickles, pop dots and gems.   

The poem is on the top inside and the pot and carts are on bottom of inside of the card.  

Please come back tomorrow Friday March 18th as I have a St. Patrick's Day layout to share with you. 
Your next blog is with Tristan -  Tristan is 8 years old and an amazing crafter.
