Teddy blessings

     I've never created so many green projects before.  LOL  Our theme at The Kraft Journal this week is "Luck of the Irish" so my project couldn't be anything but green.  :-)
     I started with a base of Brown Kraft cardstock and matted with green Bazzill, Buff Ivory cardstock, and designer papers.  I used an adorable image from Mabelle RO Whimsy and Stars Studio.  Such a sweet face.  :-)  I used Prismas on a Large Shipping Tag. The tag was finished off with 7 Gypsies Savannah seam binding  and a button tied on with Hang Tag String.  I pulled out the sewing machine for some stitching, did a little inking on the tag and smaller buff mat, and added that fun felt trim that I picked up at Mike's around Christmas.
     We'd love to see your luck projects this week so link them up by 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday for your chance at some Kraft Outlet goodies.  We give away a $15.00 store voucher every month to one lucky someone who has played  along with us during the month plus each week we have a Top Three and someone gets chosen for a spotlight the following week.  Lots of fun so come join us!  :-)
      I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays--go green or recycle

Totally Gorjuss--anything goes with a button
