Top of the mornin' to ya! And Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!

I'm part Irish...I think. Well, my maiden name was McDermott, so I'm pretty sure I'm part Irish! LOL And yes, I went from a 'Mc' (Irish) to a 'Mac' (Scottish) and I'm sure my ancestors are rolling in their graves because of it! We're going out for bangers and mash tonight, and maybe a pint to wash it all down too. :D Are you doing anything special today?

Today's Whimsical Wednesday challenge is a sketch by little Nikolas Diedrich. It's a pretty easy one and perfect for those little stamps we all have. You can check out the details on the Diedrich Dare blog and while you're there, check out what this week's featured daredevil, Sara Henton, has created!

The last time I used this Love Bug Cupid image from The Character Cafe, I used the little butterfly, so this week I decided to use Mr Skunk instead.

He's really cute with the butterfly, but the nice thing about digital images, is that you can print all of the image or just part of it. And the other nice thing is that you can resize them, which I did so I could get Mr. Skunk to fit inside this center panel. Yep, he's a skunk and I colored him in brown. I had to - black didn't go with the rest of the card! ;)

Need more inspiration?? Check out what the rest of the Daredevils came up with:

Unfortunately, this is my last card for the Whimsical Wednesday challenge. I haven't been able to manage my time very well since returning to full time work, so I had to make a tough decision and say goodbye to the Daredevils. I've had a great time creating these cards! Thanks for the fun times girls!!
