Gorgeously Green Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gorgeously Green Blog Hop where each project is made with at least 2 shades of green! If you've happened upon my blog today and would like to start from the beginning head over to Melanie so you don't miss one gorgeous project!


If you leave a comment on everyone’s post, you could win some Gorgeous blog candy consisting of paper from DCWV and Basic Grey, Rub-ons, ribbon, borders, printable alphas, adhesive, and more! You don't have to become a follower of Afternoon Scrapper or any of us, but we sure would love it if you did!

And now onto my projects. First I have a card that is suitable to give a fella. I always have hard time with masculine cards but I like the way this one turned out, simple, manly, even with a touch of bling. 



And for my second project I was able to capture this cute little Leprechaun so I decorated him up! I re-purposed this nut jar into a stylish leprechaun trap. ;)

Here he is before I covered him up...

and also a view from the back.

Materials used:
Cutting files from Scraptastical Kreations:
Feelin' Lucky, Garden Splendor, Fancy Flowers
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Timeless Twine
Assorted Papers from my stash
McGill Stamen punch
White Gelly Roll pen
Colorbox chalk inks
Some gold coins I "borrowed" from my son

Now I must send you on to the very talented Jennyfer and see what Gorgeous project she has for you!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope we inspired you in some way!

And in case you lose your way, here is the complete line-up:

  25. very cute! I have never thought of doing something like this before. It would look great on a mantle or table as the centerpiece. I like your card too but the little guy in the jar is so unique. Thanks for sharing.
