Happy St. Patrick's Day and welcome to the 
Lucky Leprechaun St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop
Hosted by Nicolette from Beyond Scrapin
   
If you have arrived here from my blogging buddy and good personal friend Ann's blog, Yours TruLee 
you are hopping in the right direction. If you just happen to be visiting and would like to hop from the beginning you can start at Nicolette's blog.

I was super excited to be a part of this blog hop. So much so that I did my project weeks ago when Nicolette asked me to participate. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and had had it running in my mind for a few weeks prior to that.

I LOVE to make something for my front door every month (many of my followers already know that because I have shared some of those projects before. So, this month I just HAD to use my Simply Charmed cartridge. It has 2 of the cutest little leprechaun's you ever did see. Take a look, I'm sure you'll agree with me....

Come on now....I know you are in love aren't you? LOL 
This handsome little fellow came out just as I had imagined. 
I cut each layer out of chipboard (aka cereal boxes) and then colored cardstock. I welded and cut the word LUCKY & the pots of gold using my Gypsy (my new love). 
I used fishing line to attach the sentiment and the leprechaun. I also used magnets (which were free advertisements I had received at the Auto Show) to adhere him to the door. 
I wish you could see the fine detail here...
I used Stickles to bling out the gold and I free handed the horseshoes. 

 
Mr. Lucky Leprechaun here has some fine detail that I don't think comes across in this picture as well as I would like so I'll give you the deets....
His hair, eyebrows and his beard were distressed with sandpaper. 
His hat buckle and his button is blinged with Stickles as well as the black band on his hat along with his shoes. 
His jacket and pants have faux stitching.

He's been happily hanging on my door for about 3 weeks now. Isn't he handsome? He's my new boyfriend. LOL
I hope you enjoyed my project. :) I know I sure did.

Your next stop on this hop is the talented Jennifer from 
But wait before you go.....I wanted to tell you about the blog candy. (YUMMY) I will be giving away a $10 gift certificate to either Michael's or JoAnn's (your choice).
To be eligible please leave a comment (you don't HAVE to be a follower but I would love it if you were :) and tell me what kind of home decor projects do you like to make yourself as well as an email address I can contact you should you be the lucky winner. 
Random.org will be picking a winner for me on Monday 3/21.

Thank you again for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your St. Patty's day and enjoy some good old fashioned Corned Beef or Ham & Cabbage. 

Keep Kreating, 
Erin

This is super cute. I do love this little guy. I really like embellishing 3D shadow boxes, they make great gifts and home decor. I like to use hangings for my office door at work but haven't made any. You've just inspired me to give that a go. Guess I'll be making something Easter or Spring related this weekend. I'm already a follower. :)

Your leprechaun is adorable, Erin! He looks like he was really fun to make. My favorite decor item to make would have to be banners. I love them.
