Going green


    First of all, let me say Happy Saint Patricks day to all of you!!  Are you wearing green??? I am not Irish, but I have a little green on today:)  Probably will not be celebrating much today, got a lot of running around to do, but I wanted to get this post up to enter the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge on their challenge blog.  The challenge for March is to go green.. You can either think green as in save the planet or use green on you card, layout or altered item.

    I chose to do a card with the Humphrey's "Friends Forever" stamp set. I have to apologies though, I colored them in with Pro markers, and I am new at it, and I only have one set, and unfortunately there is no gray in the set:(   So the little ice cream eaters are a light tan.

    I decides to go with the go green as in, using the color green and this is what I came up with.  Below is listed the supplies used to create today's project.
