Better late than never...

It's past St. Patrick's Day but I do have a card to share for this week's little red wagon #124, Lucky You!
Supplies: paper from Fancy Pants;
'lucky' stamp from Michaels; Peeled Paint distress ink;
horseshoes sticker from Jolee's;
corner rounder
I was away at my mother-in-law's house for part of March break last week, but just picture how excited I was to come home & see that I was featured for my frustrating woven card here! Link up your own "luck" cards (with either the word 'luck' or a lucky symbol) before Wednesday, when the new challenge will begin.

I've also got a card for this week's Shopping our Stash #43, Food/Beverage. This challenge ends at midnight, so link up quick!
Supplies: Papers from Basic Grey "Life of the Party;"
standard circle & lacey circle Nesties;
ice cream cone sticker (and balloon on envelope) from Simple Stories
Finally everyone is heading back to school and work today after March Break. It's nice to have a vacation, but it's also nice to get back into a routine. It turns out that Abby isn't such a great traveler - oh, she's fine in the car, but being in a strange house had her on high alert the whole time, including barking at people who live in the house (not cool!) and barking whenever someone got up to use the washroom in the night (ugh!). She & I both slept much better in our own bed.
xoxo,
Jessi

Love that lucky card! You always have the most fun little doodads like those gold horseshoes:) Congrats on the shout out for your woven card! So cool!

I hear you on the feeling of relief when you get back home after a trip. With kids and pets, traveling can be a real adventure, lol!

Do I spy a card with only 1 piece of patterned paper on it? LOL! Like those little horseshoes and the yummy ice cream on the second one.
And I'm with Abby - not good at being a house guest. Always tense, on high alert and occasionally bark at the home owners! :)
