Top of the Morning

I have a few Irish friends and will always make them a card for St. Partrick's Day. This year is no exception. My friend who lives on the 11th floor (I'm on the 10th) came down on Saturday rang my door bell and handed me a hot out of the oven fresh loaf of Irish Soda Bread. Talk about mouth watering. My son must have smelled it in the other room came out and immediately ripped off a piece, smothered it with butter and chowed it down.

I am working on another card so I'm not sure if I will give her this one, or the other one as a thank you for that delishious loaf of bread.

Probably the best St. Patty's Day card I've ever seen - fab coloring. Have a piece of that bread for me. Hugs...Kris

Both cards are gorgeous - I would never have though of using a Magnolia image for a St Patrick's card but it works so well.
Thank you for joining in the CD Sunday challenge.
