Happy St. Patrick's Day to YOU!

Well, I was a bit bummed that I keep procrastinating on the Delightful Inspiration weekly challenge.  I had the image ready, but no card designed. 

I am so glad that I procrastinated!

This beautiful green day has brought our family some luck.  My DH has been unemployed for almost two years.  While he has worked part time, it hasn't been a permanent position; or a job he truly wants for the rest of his life!  Today he went for an interview and was offered a job!!  Needless to say, he accepted and starts on Sunday! 

This great news inspired my card today.  Not only because it is St. Patrick's Day, but because the luck of the Irish sure is shining on us today!!


The DP and CS is all from Close To My Heart, the angel is from Faith over at Delightful Inspirations and the clover stamp is from studio g.

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April

ps ~ Drop in tomorrow for a fun hop with the DTs of Deedee's Digis!!!!
