Winter Olympics inspired…

For St. Patrick’s Day!


Today’s card has several sources of inspiration.

First, I was watching Rina Krupsky’s shaving cream demo (whom I think is delightful to watch and always gets me giggling!), and it reminded me that this was a technique I always wanted to try! Not sure why I never had until this fun foamy technique until now! It is a lot of fun and makes your card smell nice too (well, depending on what brand you are using! lol)

The second source of inspiration … if your house anything like ours, the Winter Olympics is on almost 24/7! LOL! This is what gave me the idea to have this Classic Old Truck speeding away in record-breaking time with all of the leprechaun’s gold … a race for the GOLD! 😉

Please check out another Classic Old Truck, but in a beautiful winter card from Lynn McAuleyThanks for stopping by and have an inky day!
