Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Good afternoon and Happy St. Patrick's day!
My son volunteered me to help at school with some sewing projects that theyare doing, so I was at school all morning. I was helping the 3rd and 4th graders sew some clothe napkins so they can use them in their lunch boxes and GO GREEN!! I am sad to say that I am not making corned beef and cabbage tonight...not enough time and my DH has to work. I called Mom in hopes that she was making some, but no luck there. Maybe this weekend!

So, here are some tube scarves that I made with the inspiration from Kristen Swain using the knifty knitter circle looms. For these scarves, I used the flower loom and just kept knitting all around in a circle until it was the length that I wanted. I made the flowers using the flower loom as well and added a circle gem and some hair clips from Michaels.

For my scarf, I used a moss green chunky yarn in only a single strand and used a grey for the flower.

Sorry, I never got a pic of my DD's scarf, will have to update that later....ooops!

Here is a treat that I made for the kids! I wish I could claim it as my own, but I found this adorable idea from greenbean on the cricut messageboard and she had found the project here. I used the clouds that are built into the Imagine and cut four of them out and just taped one to one side of the bag and one to the other side just using some atg tape. I cut the pot from Simply Charmed cartridge at 2" and used glue dots to adhere the gold coins! The kids just loved these this morning, what a great idea, so thank you girls!

Here is a cute little card that I made for the Fatnabulous Cricut challenge blog! We had to use green and gold or bright yellow in my case and it had to be square! I used the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge for this and it was done. I added some google eyes and some black dots using a glaze pen just for some added detail!
I hope you all have a wonderful day today and don't forget to wear your green or you just might get pinched!!!
