Happy St. Patrick's Day

This week our challenge to you at Delightful Challenges is to think GREEN, which wasn't hard for me because today is St. Patrick's Day.  While I married into a Ukrainian family and my Father was Polish, my Mother's background was English and Irish so I figure I am good to celebrate today and I am wearing green.  I will not be drinking green beer though :)

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Emma's Store and she will be providing a $10 gift certificate to her store as a prize.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
