Lets have some Craic

Thursday, March 12, 2009

And you all thought I was a nice girl! ;) LOL Don't worry; Craic isn't what you think it is!

Craic is a Gaelic term that loosely describes having fun. And if you're Irish (or an Irish-lover) usually music and beer are involved! Don't believe me.....looky here!

I have always loved St. Patty's day. Maybe it's because of my Irish heritage or it could be because it's just a great excuse to have a pint or two! When I worked in Australia, we always had lunch at one of the Irish pubs and have a pint to celebrate the day. Although, any more than 1 pint and I'd be as useless as a inkless inkpad!

So in honor of this craic day I made this card using the Bag Piper stamp from Doggone Stamps. This pudgy guy looks like he's ready for a good time doesn't he?!

The layout is this week's sketch challenge created by Jana Mays, my fellow Doggone Stamps design team member. I love doing sketch challenges because all that's left to do is to pick the paper and the stamp! Easy peesy right?! Yeah.....I hummed and ahhhed which paper to pick and ended up using this Basic Grey piece. Since the Bag Piper looked like he was going to play a little diddy after his beer, the 'Little Love Note' sentiment seemed to be the perfect fit! If you haven't spotted it already, that beer is looking a bit on the cold side...and any Irishman will tell ya that beer is not meant to be drunk cold! LOL
