Thought for the day -

Well this weekend certainly flew by and I was barely at home.  I much prefer those quiet weekends when we are at home with nothing to do- with me in my craft room. LOL I must be getting old.

Yesterday we had boyscouts and it was Jordan's 1st Pinewood Derby.  He didn't place & wasn't happy about. I can't believe how competetive these kids are!  His father & I were just thrilled that the wheels didn't fall off- there were a few cars that had mishaps but Jordan's held up, much to the surprise of his father. lol  Here are some of the cars- Jordan's car is the red one with the firebird emblem. Check out the spiderman car- way too creative!!
Ok today I have a card for Sunshine & Giggles Sunshine Monday.  With all the green challenges out there this week I thought I would keep the St. Patty's day theme going.  Ok it's really not necessarily for St. Patty's day but does involve something Irish.

This is the image called Shannon & the Dance.  I just love this little image.
Supplies used:  Cardstock from Stampin Up, DP-Basic Grey Origins Pad, sewing, ribbon, flowers & leaves from the Wild Orchid Crafts, copics.
My card today is also covering several challenges:
Friday Sketchers- the wonderful sketch I've followed
Stamp Something:  Green & Cream
Our Creative Corner: color challenge, greeen, yellow, pink & brown (my image)

Be sure to see what Giggles DT has in store for your sunshiney Monday.  Their links can be found on my sidebar.  Hope you have a great Monday.

An Irish dancer! I didn't know there was a stamp for that. I shouldn't be surprised, though. *LOL* Gorgeous colouring of your image.
