Slainte!

We're lovin' a bit of the green this week at Sassy Cheryl's challenge. It's my chance to hostess the challenge this week and I chose our green theme. For me, it's another opportunity to make one more card for St. Patrick's Day. I just love this bear and used him last year as well. Isn't his face just adorable?


My entire repertoire of Gaelic comes down to these two expressions... Slainte and Erin Go Bragh. While Erin Go Bragh means Ireland Forever and Slainte simply stated, means "cheers and good health". What a wonderful word for toasting someone special... so I'm toasting you, my blog friends. Have a fantastic St. Patrick's Day!

In addition to Sassy Cheryl's challenge, I'm also entering these challenges today...and in blogland there's green just about everywhere you look at this time of year.
