Lucky Shamrock

What!  I am already celebrating St. Patrick's Day you ask?  Well, yes I am!  Here's one item I created with SRM Stickers and involves my least favorite thing to do.  Hand sewing.  Now you know!  Ever thrilled aren't you? I am feeling a bit sassy but won't bore you with why.   Just know it's better shared here than in the home with Grumpy Guses about.  Geez!  It's Friday people!
I die cut two pieces of green felt and then hand stitched them together to make a pocket.  I left the top left corner open to tuck a note or treat inside.  That's a caramel flavored candy stick and it is yummy with hot chocolate or in a cup of coffee!  I drink my coffee plain normally but decided to try this one day and was in heaven!

 I added a ribbon to hang the shamrock.  I punched a circle from pattern paper and added the lucky sticker to a white piece of card stock to layer on top.  The shamrock sticker was adhered to a piece of orange print paper and cut out.  A rhinestone was added to the center.  I added two clear buttons to brackets on the lucky.  The square Happy St. Pat's Day!  sticker was placed on a white piece of card stock and glued to the ribbon.  I used sticker sheet #52033 Lucky.  Only one little sheet to create this cute little project!
