A Paper Pretties New Release

can you see the leprechaun charm?  you can click to enlarge the photo.

It's time for new releases at Paper Pretties. 

Because my last name is Italian you may not know that I am Irish, well I am,  and not just on Saint Patrick's Day.   So I am thrilled to show off my easel card created with the darling "Give Thanks" Sophia set and the brand spanking new "Irish Blessings" set.  There are three different blessings in this set, and I gotta tell you I had a really hard time deciding which one to use. 

I'll be sending this card off to my Aunt (mom's sis) who is very proud to be Irish.  I know she'll get a kick out of it and she'll display it amidst her gorgeous Irish knick knacks and crystal.  How about you, I bet you have someone who would appreciate receiving a blessing from you. 

For more sneak peaks stop by the Paper Pretties blog to see which other members of the design team have work to show you. We'll be peaking for the next few days so stop by Paper Pretties everyday to see what's new.
