Simon Says Challenge - A Bit of Green

Let me first just tell you what I found yesterday!!!!!! I was on my usual morning run and just looked down  and there it was....... A FOUR LEAF CLOVER!!! Listen, I was just soooo excited thinking I was going to have good luck ALL day, and washing machine broke down in the middle of my wash.  I guess they are not that much good luck. ha ha!  I was thrilled to find it though because I had just told my hubby the day before that I wanted to just sit in the middle a bunch of clover and search for one. That was until I saw my pup pee in it, then my imagination went off to all the pups peeing in that clover and so I chose NOT to sit in it. Yik!

This week at Simon Says we would like to see a bit of green on your cards.  We are all using something Basic Grey on our cards.  Please join us this week for another chance to win a fabulous prize!!!!

For my card, I used this cute little Greeting Farm girl called Megan  and colored her with Distressed Inks.  Simon Says Stamps is now carrying a HUGE selection of Greeting Farm stamps.
The paper is Yellow Bicycle and I stamped a Basic Grey swirl which can be found HERE on the right side and along the blue piece.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and Branch punch. 

We have a special guest this week and her name is Gunn.  Be sure to visit her blog! We are so happy to have her joining us this week! 

Thank you for visiting me today! Your comments make my day!!

Hugs, Dena

P.S. There is a Simon Says group at PCP and currently there is a challenge you can join in on and win a wonderful 6x6 paper pad "Green at Heart".  You can find it here, go check it out!

Love your story about sitting in a clover patch until you saw your dog watering it. lol. A couple of years ago, my daughter found a 7 leaf, 6,5,4 and a couple of 3 leaf clovers all over a period of a few months. I think we had a magical patch in our backyard. It was amazing. Hope you're having a wonderful day. xo Jackie

hehe you gave me a giggle hun, i have never found a four leaf clover before, i used to look for them all the time when i was younger, it eventually got to the point where i stuck 2 together and created a four leaf clover from the two by pulling of the leaves hehe, still didnt give me any luck though haha, speaking of washing machines though, mine actually broke down in the middle of a wash yesterday too hehe, how weird is that eh :), anyho this is a gorgeous card sweetie, everything is perfect, that image is adorable and your colouring is just fab
