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!!
this was a great challenge Kerry!
