My Sheri Crafts #152

I'm back!  It's been 10 long challenges ago since I've updated my blog and I needed a moment to remember how to blog... hee hee.  Ok, all kidding aside, it's great to be back to the Design Team from my long break.  

This week's theme over at  My Sheri Crafts is all about St. Patrick's Day.  Design Team Sister, Glenda, has asked us to create a project that would include a pot of gold, a four leaf clover, or a leprechaun.   Since I haven't really crafted in a long time, I went with a simple project.

Since I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I don't have any decor at home for this holiday.  I bought a black ceramic pot at the dollar store that reminded me of a pot of gold.  I decorated it with a strip of St. Patrick's Day themed papers from Recollections and layered it with kelly green gro-grain ribbon.  Then with my new Cricut Explore (yes, I finally got one), I cut the St. Patrick's Day label and the four leaf clovers.  I used emerald glitter to cover the cuts.  The fanned flower was created using a Fiskar border punch.  I also embellished with some three leaf clover buttons I got from Michael's. 

I stuck these cuts to an existing pot of plant I had in the living room and used the gold coins I got from the dollar store.  The planter is currently displayed now in my living room so guests can see it as they come in the house.  I actually like the idea of decorating a planter for every holiday to display in my living room

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts
