Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy card making, Sweet Sketch Wednesday Followers. 
This is Arlana posting this week from Utah. 
We have had a touch of spring in my part of the world.....It sure beats the bad snow storm that we had last week when my sister Judi was visiting.  I sure am glad it's been more like spring for most of this week.  But I have heard we may have bad weather again on the weekend.
Do you realize it will be St. Patrick's Day on Saturday?  My how time flies...seems like it was just Christmas.
I have two daughters with birthdays this week. One of my daughter's birthday is on St.Patrick's Day. The other one is on the 14th. They were born three days under a year apart. I want to wish them both a very SWEET and Happy Birthday!!!

Well, let's get going.......

We have a fabulous sponsor this week.  "Tammy" from
A Day for Daisies

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!
