Green for St. Patrick's Day!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a good weekend planned. I hope to stamp and color.. and stamp and color...LOL! That's MY plan anyways. How many time does that go as planned! One can dream.

Today is my week over at Just Magnolia. I have chosen the theme, 'Green'. I'm a wee bit of Irish, and tomorrow is St. Patricks Day, so I couldn't resist. Plus, I really do love the color green, Emerald is my birthstone.

I was given this stamp from Barbro at Magnolia when I was at CHA. Thank you so much Barbro! I love this stamp, I just love the rag in her hair and her long pig-tails. For some reason I imagined her sitting on a log in a forest. I don't have a log stamp, so I just drew one under her after I stamped her. I think it came out ok.

Anyways. Have a lovely weekend and I hope you will find the time to join us at Just Magnolia this week.
