May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields.
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Thursday we're having a huge dinner - the usual: corned beef, potatoes and garbage (thats what my grandfather penned cabbage, lol, and its stuck in our house ever since), Irish glazed pound cake, Irish Soda Bread, Rye Bread, and Irish Cream cheesecake --its a huge deal for us every year and I really look forward to this dinner and gathering of my family almost as much as I do Christmas. Unfortunately, my grandmother won't be able to come this year so I thought I would make this for her to cheer her up. I used the image from Designed 2 Delight's progressive challenge (since I had entered the last one, she emailed this one to me for free!!!) and used the sketch at Friday's Sketchers for inspiration. If you didn't play along in last week's challenge over at D2D, no worries - you can buy Angel Caroline in Faith's store (I provided the link below).
The original Angel Caroline image holds a little daisy flower, but I found these shamrock confetti that I had from last year that I stuck on top of the flower with a glue dot and the flower is a digi embellie that I punched a hole in and used a light green brad that I had in my stash forever! I printed out the Irish Blessing and stuck that inside as its one of my favorites!
