Lucky to have...

 Good morning, hope you are all feeling well, no nasty little coughs or anything suspicious! 
I'm really fed up with hearing about the virus now I know we need to be careful and I understand everyone's concern for their more vulnerable loved ones but I don't want to hear about it every time I turn on the TV! It's taking over where Brexit left off!

Anyway, enough of me moaning - time to tell you about this week's fun challenge at Sweet Stampin'.
the theme this week, in honour of St Patrick's Day is to use green or make a funny card. 
As you can see I went for the green option! My cute little image is from Mo Manning, coloured up with copics. I printed her twice and fussy cut the girl and some of the shamrocks, popping them onto foam pads for a little extra dimension. Inside I have used the sentiment that comes with the image. 
I hope you choose to play along with us at Sweet Stampin' this week.
Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend, stay safe from the germs!

A really gorgeous card Chris, I adore that image and you have coloured her up beautifully.
I do understand your view, I don't watch the news its too much at times, if I want to check anything out I go to the NHS website, at least your getting more facts than the web where everyone is accusing everyone else...daft...Stay well and keep colouring I

Chris I am with you on the virus....just stay safe and practical.
Your card is just adorable. Wonderful sentiment.

love all the shades of green and the dimension in your card Chris, like you fed up with the virus dominating everything especially when the hand washing technique they demonstrate doesn't advise to roll up sleeves or remove watches as it should
