The Devil (AKA Susie Q) Made Me...

It say "Here's Hoping" on the heart
It's her fault, she challenged me to make a card wishing someone good luck. So that's what I did!  Maybe this is not quite what she had in mind. I have no idea why this is what I thought up, I'm usually so much more dignified (if you just spit out your drink go clean it up, I'll wait).

 It's usually the penguins that start the trouble but not today. It's those goofy frogs that came to mind immediately. Well that makes sense because the alternate theme is St. Patrick's Day. Saint Paddy makes me think of green. From thinking green to thinking penguins, bunnies and cats not so likely, but frogs, yeah green and frogs go toegether. Then wishing them luck, well that's just what I did.

So there you have it, a view into my thought processes. Followed a very logical path didn't it, so how come you didn't make this card. What scares me is that there just may be someone else out there who made a card just like this. Well, as I said before, it's Susie's fault.

Unless you want to blame the penguins...

maybe you want to forget the inside
it says "you get lucky"

Here's the deets:
stamps - The Cat's Pajamas "Puppy Love" and "Loving Mew"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; green bick pen for sentiment
