Peachy Keen Blog Hop!!!

Hello!!! I am SO happy it's finally hop day!!! I used the NEW PK-282 St. Patrick's Day set. I colored the super cute leprechaun head with my prismacolor colored pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. I then made him a body out of the gnome from the Freshly Picked cricut cartridge. I wanted to make him look like those little leprechaun costumes you see marching in St. Paddy's parades.
I heat embossed the FUNNY sentiment and the little shamrocks {also in the set} and colored them in with my sakura metallic green pen. I couldn't get a good picture, I swear it's shimmery and cool!

I attached the head with a wobble...although his head shakes the wrong way to answer the question asked in the sentiment! HAHAHAHAHa....ok, here's another card from another new set...

I used PK-283 Cheers for Green Beer set for this SUPER EASY card. I know it's kinda boring, but I felt like coloring him this afternoon! ☺ The super cute sentiment is from Emma's stamp set called..........I believe in Leprechauns.

and here's a card I had posted already made with PK-285 Mark and Sharen Love Frogs set.
