An Irish Blessing and FTTC57

First, thank you for all the kind comments that you have left lately. I so appreciate your taking the time to visit and then taking more time to leave a comment. I'm sending each of you a huge hug.

Flourishes refurbished the online store and this week is celebrating this grand opening. Check each day for some great challenges with prizes up for grabs. This week Maki  Jones is hosting Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, and her challenge is to create a celebratory card. I'm celebrating St. Patrick's Day with my card and the fantastic set Irish Blessings. St. Patrick's Day was my father's birthday, so there were always St. Patrick's Day birthday cards along with birthday cakes decorated in green.  And then when I married, I gained an Irish last name, so I like  to observe this holiday.

And the inside . Isn't that blessing beautiful?
