I guess I missed the BIG Mardis Gras Celebration - just couldn't get to stamping yesterday - but if I know the Teaparty gals - there's still a lot of partying going on down there - so PJ Bear is bringing down the green because we heard that there's already plenty of purple and gold there!
AND Joanne's Doubledog Dare challenge this week was to make a St. Patrick's Day card so here you go!

Oh, I love it!! So sweet, and not a Patty in sight (one of my pet peeves is stamps that say Patty's Day, but Paddy is totally A OK).
And I can tie it in so well with with Mardi Gras, because isn't that all about using up all the stuff you weren't meant to be eating during the Lenten fast. And St Patrick's Day was the day that we were allowed an exemption from whatever we'd given up for Lent - usually sweets and chocolates when we were kids. So we're seguing seamlessly from Mardi Gras straight on to the next holiday with this adorable little bear :D.

Darn right Julia! You hit the nail on the head! You did good combining all of these challenges. Your little card is precious. I love his paper pieced nose! Snort!
Yah, we are still here. Have been having some issues with Curt poppin balloons, the dragon snuffing out candles, Bertie and Gertie having sketti fights, and mysterious men showing up in really cool masks! You know, typical stuff!
Let's go introduce PJBear to the girls...Hang on to that hat! It would be an item of desire for the teapotters! Yay, that you made it this week! Whoot! Precious card!
