Lucky Charm Blog Hop!!

 Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!! Welcome to the Lucky Charm Blog Hop! If you've arrived from Wendy's Blog then you are in the right place!! If you were stopping by to say hello and want to join in the fun please go back to the beginning by clicking here -!  This blog hop is all about creating something for the lucky charm in your life..

So we are going to start with Mama Lovebug's card!!
When Mama LoveBug thinks of Lucky Charms (especially at this time of year), I imagine shamrocks, the color green, and St. Patrick’s Day memorabilia, but as a recently retired teacher, I feel a “lucky charm” in today’s world has to be something educational. From my point of view, that’s a diploma, whether it be for kindergarten, middle or high school, college, military, trade school, GED, whatever – that diploma can open doors to one’s future! So with that in mind, I designed a Lucky Charm Graduation Card.

Recipe for Lucky Charm Graduation Card

*Kelly green card base with matching envelope, corners chomped
*Plaid lighter green second layer, corners chomped
*Lighter green ribbon adhered to second layer paper

*Embellishments – Good Luck with shamrock and plain shamrock from my daughter Kim’s creativity with the Cricut Imagine
1. For the Good Luck I adhered this to the card with dimensionals
2. For the plain shamrock I stamped the sentiment, You did it, with stamp
from Close to My Heart grad set, went over the words with a glitter pen
                                                         and fashioned some faux-stitching
  *Lucky Girl Graduate - Sizzix body, hair, face, and graduation dies with Liquid Pearls as accent to provide detail and a sense of dimension

On to Kimi's Project!

For this card I wanted to try something that I never have before! So after watching this awesome video by Michelle from Scrappin' With My Bug (here on youtube or by going to her blog here!) I decided to give it a try! My lucky charm is my best friend and I know she will love this card!! I took 3 pictures to try and give you an idea of what it looks like when it spins!

The computer generated sentiment reads
 "A best friend is like a 4 leaf clover- Hard to find and lucky to have"
I wanted a great sentiment and thought this was perfect! This and others can be

Recipe for Best Friend Lucky Charm Card
-Cream Cardstock
-Green Pattern from Blossom Imagine Cart.
-Girls from Best Friends Imagine Cart.
-Shamrock from Designer Calendar Cart
-Sentiment computer generated
