Kiss Me I'm Irish

I totally missed coloring this cute #1324 Smoochies, by Sandra Caldwell, for Valentine's Day and then, while checking out the challenge themes on the Outlawz Forum, I thought why not use him for St. Patrick's Day?   Festive Fridays calls for St. Paddy's, but I haven't played the last 2 weeks in the Wednesday Sketch challenge so I used this week's sketch for my card (How about that?  Not even the last day to play. Yea, ME!)

I turned the sketch and added an extra mat.  Papers are Graphic 45 with some glitter foam shamrocks from my stash and an Alpha Bead Sentiment.  The cute "Kiss me" sentiment I printed with the image is one of the Freebie sentiments Ike so generously included with her new Fur-eebie for the St. Cat-rick's Day challenge on the SUYP (cat's only) blog.  Can't wait to color him, too.

Here's a closeup of #1324 Smoochies.  Isn't he a cutie?  I've colored him with Copics in St. Paddy's Day colors and added some pencil detail to his hair.  Then I cut him out with a Spellbinder's Deckle Rectangle.  It's a better pic of Ike's cool sentiment, too.

Sandra's got loads of fun St. Patrick's Day images in her Etsy store, along with many new Spring images.  New arrivals every Friday with DT inspiration in the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB Group.  The March contest, "Bee Silly"  runs through the 26th so there's plenty of time to play using all or any of the specially discounted stamps for the challenge.  That's right 4 adorable "bee" images are only $1.50 for the duration of the challenge.  You can find them HERE.
