Happy St.Patrick's Day!

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day today!  I will be having fun in the St.Patrick's Day parade later this morning here in downtown Topeka!  I am going to be on the float for 94.5 Country Radio station where my hubby works. 
I just didn't think that I could manage to walk the route with being sick lately. 
Here are my kiddos cards I made them for their little mailboxes!  I used Nichole Heady's little trick with the frame stamp for the lines from Luck of the Irish by PTI.  I have some playing around with it yet to do because I didn't get my lines lined up quite right to get every other color, KWIM?  Hence, the two yellow lines together!  Anyway, my kiddos won't notice!! 
I also used another St. Patrick's Day stamp set that I had bought a long time ago at JoAnn's.  The clover border and pot 'o gold on the inside of the card came from this set.  I just love this little saying "You're my pot of gold!"  These cards for my kids mailboxes are 3X3 size.....just perfect!
Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!  Don't forget to wear green!!!

Those are fun cards and I like how the stripes turned out! Even with the 2 yellow stripes together, it looks like patterned paper that is suppose to be that way!

Such a sweet little card! And I like the two yellow lines together... what's funny is that I probably wouldn't have noticed until you said something :)

Awww, these are so cute Amy, and I'm jealous because I lost my Luck of the Irish stamp set and had to use another one for my St. Patty's cards today.
Have fun on the float in the parade!

Wonderful cards! I love that you added yellow/gold, it really adds a fun touch, looks great, and better than just all green imo :)

Cute cards! I missed the idea about using the frame as stripes - at first I thought you already got "Distressed Stripes". I love it.
