Good Luck Cards
Welcome to March! Can you believe it is already here? Winter is dwindling away for most of us and we wait with anticipation for Spring and it’s fresh blossoms. We also celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and when I think of this day, a phrase that goes something like this - “the luck of the Irish”- pops into my head. What we’re focusing on this month is completely inspired by this fun, green, lucky holiday and we’re showcasing Good Luck cards. We all need some of these in our stash, right?
These first few cards were totally inspired by St. Patrick’s Day. Some rainbows, glitter, four-leaf clovers and good-natured encouragement are a welcome gift from anyone. I love Nancy’s approach by showing us the power of a simply composed card that gets the message clearly across. Then we have Renee’s fantastically whimsical approach. And why not throw in a matching envelope like Debbie did?
