Good Luck St. Paddy Day's Amazing Life Card

     Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting this yesterday, but we lost internet before this post could go up. For the last week I have been cleaning my craft room and there was absolutely no room for any crafting to take place. I finally got my desk cleared enough to play again. I got it cleaned just in time for the Winter storm that hit yesterday with record breaking snow amounts. Now I have a reason to stay in my craft room all day and not go anywhere!

And with Valentine's Day just a few days away I wanted to share with you a fun card I did that anyone would love to receive on that special day or any other special day.
