Deanne, you have done a gorgeous job coloring up your sweet bear. I love the gold in the pot and the rich browns you have used for the bear. Nice sparkle on the clover leaf too. I can appreciate how cold you are there. It is extemely cold here too. I can't even stand to be out in it. I even had my coat on all day today at work. Hope you get warmed up...I am trying to as well.

Jeeperz! I've fallen behind again looking at and commenting on your cards...sorry about that. I backtracked so I could see everything you've done since my last visit - looks great!! I like the new look/layout for you blog as well! =)

Lynne said...

Fabulous creation in every way, Deanne! Love it!

Sharon Basel said...

Wow this is fantastic Deanne! Love that lucky shamrock all glittered up and of course it is only fools gold unless it too is glittered! Great card!

Must say I'm stunned to see a new blog look here - looks great!

Oh -44 that's cold, I've never ever experienced that cold in my life. It was so hot here last night that we slept with the sliding door open beside our bed onto the deck it was so hot, humid and sticky, I think it was the humidity that was worse. You would need toe, finger and nipple warmers in those temperatures!!!!
I just love your card, I was going to get that image seeing my DH is Irish but I couldn't resist that frog. I love your pot of gold and your lovely Irish Teddy and awesome card. Love your new blog header it looks great and I love the colours as well. Looking good, now keep warm.
