Happy St Patrick's Day!

My neighbor asked me if I had my potatoes and peas planted yet--St Patrick's Day is supposed to be the planting goal! Nope. Hopefully we'll get it done by the end of March, though.

Three of my daughters did Irish Dance for years, so this used to be a particularly busy time of year. Somehow I remember it being warmer than this, but that's probably just old age setting in. LOL We drove all over the valley, performing at schools, businesses, nursing homes, the state capitol. It was a BIG deal. Kinda glad those days are past, even though the kids were so cute!

Without further delay, my St Patrick's Day Pillowbox!



I made these to give out to my Card Buffet ladies last week, and they were a hit! This project uses the Big Shot Pillowbox die and the brand-spanking-new Scalloped Oval Punch (available for order April 1!). There is acetate behind the window, to keep the candy from falling out. 'Cause you don't want your candy falling all over the place! {wink} I used butter mints, but M&Ms would have been cute, too. Or chocolate covered almonds. Or mini-Snickers bars.

It must be time for lunch.
