Some call it luck, some fortune; I call it a blessing. I was chosen the random winner of "Free Stamps for a Year" from Paper Trey Ink. I can't tell you how blessed I feel to be receiving such an awesome gift! I certainly didn't do anything extraordinary to earn it. Yet, my little box of 10 stamp sets arrived on my door step this past week. Lucky me! Fortunate me! Blessed me!!!

I feel compelled to share my blessing, so I'm going to try to make it a priority to post some of the cards I make each month with these lovely Paper Trey gems!

Since I'm Norwegian, I haven't ever purchased St. Patrick's Day or Irish stamps, but I have to admit that Luck of the Irish is one of my favorite sets from PTI's January release. With phrases like "You're my pot of gold and Lucky to count you as a friend", it makes for some very sweet friendship cards. And those are my favorite type of cards to make.

This one's off to Texas! One of my dearest friends, Priscilla, moved there in November. My daughter and I went to visit her and her family last month. It was such a treat to be able to chat with her face to face and to see her new home and community, but I am missing her again already.

It feels good to be back to blogging. I look forward to sharing more PTI designs as well as what's new with my family in the weeks ahead. Thanks for visiting! ~Patti

It's SO good to see you posting again, Patti!

I'm in agreement with you: your winning a HUGE, wonderful blessing...and to share a little joke we have in our family, "there's no such thing as luck" ...even though we're always saying things like "good luck" to each other. ;)

I've never made a St. Patrick's Day card, even though my family has a wee bit of Irish heritage (we're more of a Hines 57 mix now -lol). I think your card is very cute, and I like how you added purple in with the greens. Very sweet friendship card.

Glad you and your daughter were able to go visit Priscilla in TX. I'm sure she enjoyed your trip as much as you guys did.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with your March release goodies when they arrive! ;D

hugs and blessings to you!
