Keep Calm and Pedal On

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

“May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.”

Keep Calm and Shamrock On

While I was working on the shamrock shaving cream candy box, it hit me! I could stamp a bunch of shamrocks right over the apples and stamp a few more to fussy cut for adding layers with pop-up dots. I then stamped another bicycle basket in red and added it with a pop-up dot too.
