The luck of the Irish

Are the Irish really lucky people?   I've always wondered... or maybe because they believe they are, they are...

This week's challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog was another hard one and I have to confess that I wasn't going to enter it, but it would be rude not to wouldn't it?  Especially since I was the lucky winner last week.

This week, there were two options, either a St Patrick's Day/Green/Luck theme or an environmental Earth day theme...  Green is definitely not my favourite colour, so once again I struggled with this one... don't you just love challenges that actually challenge you though?!

I decided to use Donna once again (Donna and Belinda definitely seem to be my favourites) and I altered her a little by drawing a bunch of four leaf clovers and sticking them over the frog she was holding in her hand.

This image was coloured up before I started recording my copic numbers.  The papers are from October Afternoon and Bo Bunny and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

And in other news, we have started our 1000 or so mile boat journey to Imperia in Italy.  We are hoping to average around 20 - 25 knots and stop in Naples (and hopefully Elba) along the way.  So no crafting for me for the next few days, but luckily I have a stockpile of cards to post!  For those friends and family members that know how, we have our AIS tracking turned on, so you can track our progress on or the Google version (

Happy Sunday!
