Happy St. Patty's Day!

Well I am not Irish, but my hubby is a little and that makes my kids a little, so I guess I can be a little for today too! To celebrate today we continued our tradition of Shamrock shakes for lunch and fries, and I made corned beef, boiled potatoes, carrots, rye bread, green river soda, and sauerkraut for dh. Such a YUMMY dinner~! I even splurged and bought dh some Guinness for his Irish meal! It was the perfect meal to make today as it was 60 degrees and the boys wanted to play outside so dinner simmered and we played outside! I am SO loving this GORGEOUS spring weather!! I only wish it was staying! Someone said there's a NASTY rumor of the S word coming back this weekend! : (
Here's our yummy shakes and the boys enjoying them!

Have you done the "Animal House" challenge at SNR yet??? If not you have till midnight tomorrow to get it done! Melissa has an AWESOME RAK for the winner! Here is my card I used the house template and a combination of Sassafrass Jungle Bungle and Me Likey papers. For the windows and door I used Sassafrass chipboard letters, and then I used the frame that is left on the sheet after you remove the letters and cut the thin strips to use a piece for the top of the chimney, window ledges, as well as a piece for the door handle. The triangle above the door is a photo corner from the Sassafrass sticker sheet, the roof is made by cutting the decorative edge off one of the sheets of paper and cutting between each circle and then layering them on the roof, the plant is cut from a piece of paper, and the edge of the roof is one of the decorative edges from a sheet of paper as well. This was really fun to make ! I haven't decided what theme this card is going to be, but I am thinking it may be a birthday or moving card. I hope you create one and play along with us!
Well I am going to take advantage of the fresh air pooping the boys out early tonight, and hubby being gone for the night and go and have some fun creating!
