Hello! Happy Monday! I hope that you are all doing well.
Welcome to the Magnolia-licious DT blog hop for March! Hopefully you started at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for all the deets. And by hopping along arrived here from Mindy's Blog. Mindy is one of the current guest designers for the next few months...Isn't she FAB?!

I saw this adorable little "animal cracker box" online and knew it would be perfect for today hop. We are all suppose to use acetate on our projects, so I made this little window.
The box was SUPER EASY to make using my Scor-Pal!!! You can find the instructions HERE, on Tracy Harp's blog. Thanks, Tracy!

So next up on today's hop is the MAGNIFICENT Suzanne Dean! I know that she will have an amazing project to share with you.

Don't forget to leave all the ladies some comment love for all their inspiration!

Have a Fantabulous Monday!

Is is Spring yet??

Stamps: Berry Tilda; Easter Egg with Bow; sentiment unknown
Paper: Memory Box Gossamer
Nestabilities labels Die; Kaiser pearls; Star Dust Stickles; Trim from Joann's


Card Measures 6" sq

Hello! It's not spring yet around here...that's for sure!

March is one of the worst months of the year around here in my opinion. It doesn't matter that I grew up right here in New England...every year I find it hard to face the fact that just because the calendar has changed to March...Mother Nature is still giving us full on winter. Actually, I prefer a good's exciting and very beautiful after the fact. But in March we don't get that. We get a wet snowing mushy snow. And it just looks dirty afterward. It makes your shoes, the bottom of your pants and your car FILTHY! The problem is, by March, I am ready for a bad way!! Particularly this year.

To help spring along, I thought it was time to start making some spring themed cards. Complete with posies and pastels and Easter eggs. Both Tilda and the Easter egg are available at Magnolia-licious. Diana has oodles of Easter stamps in. Plus, you can Pre-order the Hoppy Easter collection now.

This sketch for this card was provided by fellow Magnolia-licious DT member Jacque.
This is the Magnolia-licous sketch of the month. You can check out the deets on the Magnolia-licious highlites blog. You will also be able to view the other DT members fantastical cards there! So enjoy!

I want to thank the girls over at The Divine Influence for inviting me to feature my blog!
I am totally honored!! Check it out!

And finally, I said I would share a few photos of CHA again. Some more amazing stampers that I think of as my friends!!

Have an Astounding Tuesday!

Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by today

I am very excited to be part of the blog hog for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!!! When my friend, Suzanne Dean invited me to join in I could not say no...after all, this sweet image is called Irish Eyes. She is part of the Sampler Edition 3 that is now being released over at SCACD. There are 7 stamps in this collection. Each one of them are ADORABLE!

If you are blog hopping along with us today, hopefully you arrived here via my wonderful BF, Kristen's blog. If this is the first you have heard of this hop, you can start at the begining HERE. You will have lots of eye candy long the way.

I always have to laugh that everyone associates me with St. Patrick's Day and Irish stuff---hmmmmm, I wonder why?! If this is your first time here, let me share with you that both my mom and my husband are Irish born and bred. The name of my blog "Three Clovers" represents my 3 cutest lucky charms: my kids. :)

My Irish culture has always been predominant in my life. I grew up going to Ireland for regular trips to visit family and friends of my moms. My parent's and sisters were/are fantastic Irish dancers ( I apparently got jipped on the dancing gene!!) So we use to spend many a Sundays at Ceili's. (pronounced: KAY-LEE)
Ceili's are gatherings celebrating Irish music and dance. Kind of like dances with a feel for family. Although, I confess as a nondancer, I spent most of the time sulking. :P
Then I met my husband, Patrick. The first day we met he invited me to his brother's wedding--in Ireland. 5 weeks later I was in Ireland with him. Most of his family is still there so we try to go as a family every other year or so. Not sure if we all will get there this year, as DH has been laid off from work for several months now.
I do enjoy our trips there. It is a beautiful place. Especially where my husband is from: Kerry!!! :) hee hee heeee
Below are a few pics from our last trip there in April of 2008. Just a few faves--I love to take photos and could show at least 100 of my faves. Note: these are all unedited photos.

Pat and Orla:

Pat's family's land. Much of this land belong to Pat's family's farm. Many of the houses belong to his brothers! They are almost their own village-lol:

Some friends we met in the road:

Well, that's all the sharing I have for now. I have been up for almost 20 hours and I am falling asleep as I try to type this. I hope that you enjoyed the SCACD Blog hop!

Have a Fantastic Friday!!

Hello! Welcome to the Magnolia-Licious February Blog Hop!!
Hopefully you came here from Suzanne's Blog. Was her card not awesome?!?!?! If not please go back to the start of the hop to get all the deets--then follow the path to visit the DT members blogs.
After leaving my blog, head over to the blog of the extremely talented Sharon.

This month we have a fun theme of Pop Up Cards. SO easy and fun too! I hope that you will join us in making a pop up card of your own.


I want to apologize for my lack of posts since the holidays. I have some stuff going on here and I am finding it hard to be motivated to blog. I do have cards ready...but trying to come up with interesting blog posts have proven to be difficult for me as of late.
I truly appreciate all the kind emails that you have sent checking up on me.

I do, however, want to share this pic of me with 2 of the most wonderful people I have ever met: Diana Crick (creator of Scor-Pal and owner of Magnolia-licious)and Suzanne Dean (paper crafter extraordinaire. We were able to spend time together at CHA and I can't express how lovely they both are and how much fun we had! We went out to dinner one night and laughed so hard our sides hurt. I am fortunate to call these ladies friends.

In the near future I will post pics of other "cyber" friends turned real life friends that I was able to finally meet.

Don't Forget, you're headed over to Sharon's blog for the nest stop on the hop!

Have a Splendiferous Day!!!!

Flowers For You

Hello Friends! Happy Hump Day!
I hope that you are having a great week. I sure am! I am busy-busy-busy. But I took yesterday for me. I didn't intend to but it worked out that way and I feel refreshed and like a new woman today. I met a friend for coffee, I got a mani and a pedi, I bought myself some new clothes...and I didn't rush through any of it. Now I feel like I can tackle all of the stuff that I have to do before leaving for CHA with a smile on my face.

Today, I have another new Riley Moose image to share with you! This is one of the 4 new images that will be released tomorrow. How adorable is Riley holding his bouquet of fresh picked flowers?! Riley's face is so adorable that I am sure he makes his sweetheart swoon without the need for flowers. :)

Just a reminder that the Riley & Company Design Team is having a blog hop starting at 10 pm EST tonight. I really hope that you will join us...I think you will find it worth your time!! ;) Start over at the Riley & Company blog where I am sure Tanya will have a great project for you.

I am going to keep this post short and sweet today. It is nearly 6 am and I haven 't gone to bed yet. :P And I still have to get some things done before doing so. That makes this a long day!

Have an Exhilarating Wednesday!!

Riley's Back!

Hello! Happy Tuesday! I am so glad that you stopped by today.

I had promised you that I would post a new Riley yesterday but I had some "technical difficulties" with my camera and my computer yesterday and was unable to get this post up. At least the other blog hop was pre-scheduled to post.

Anyhooooooo, Riley is back!! And cuter than ever! This is Birthday Riley. If you followed Riley's journey, you know that back in Nov/Dec the line of Riley stamps was sold to Tanya, who created Riley and Company. Yeah! I am so happy that Riley will continue to live on!

Yesterday was the first day of peeks for the 3 new Rileys being released on January 21st. AND there will be a Riley and Company Design Team blog hop tomorrow, January 20th starting at 10pm!!! WoooHooooo!

Meanwhile, Please be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have been making. If you have been a Riley Fan you will Recognize some familiar faces and be pleased to see some new ones too!
Have a Delightful Tuesday!
