Irish for {a few} Days!

I belong to a group of friends, a few of which come from Irish decent...and they LOVE to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - and I am talking from morning to well, the next morning.  I have been working on a few 'festive' {little} projects, one of which is for a friend I 'owe' a favour to.
A Tag
Irish Verse: {found on-line}
'May your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go'
{detail shot}
This {little} tag will be attached to a batch of my homemade Peanut Butter&Bacon Donuts {um, yeah...yum! I strongly suggest trying these}. The tag is a normal Manila Tag from Staples, I covered it in Kraft Paper and added the St. Patty's Day hat cut from the Cricut.  The Clover is from my stash, I stamped it with Distressed Dots {Peeled Paint Distress Ink} and added a silk bow and {top} loop!
Peanut Butter&Bacon Donuts
{not the greatest of pictures...but, we sell these at my niece&nephew's HUGE Charity Lemonade Stand, the are the NUMBER ONE requested item...and we sell out constantly!}
I hope your days are Fantastic!


SIDENOTE: A few people have been commenting about my bows...here's the scoop! I go to my local fabric store {Fabricland} and ask them to cut the smallest amount possible...I think it comes out to 1/10th of a meter, I can probably get about 20 {small - same as above} bows from this! I LOVE using silk because of the rigidness of the material! ...It does turn out to be cheaper than buying strips of ribbon from my LSS, they sell 1 strip {I would say 1 meter or less} for $1!


  1. Such a great tag - your friend will surely enjoy it esp. with those donuts!!! YUM~! Now off to lunch - i am suddenly hungry! LOL!!

  2. That tag is sure to be a hit with your friend....wish it was me.
    Those donuts look awesome.

  3. cute tag! The bacon and PB combo sounds "interesting" but I'll take your word for it that they are actually awesome :P

  4. So... you prolly told us, but where is the recipe?
    Oh- adorable tags. Did you know that Patrick wasn't Irish?

  5. Love the tag!


...my apologies for the WORD VERIFICATION...I have been getting A LOT of SPAM lately...
Thank you for your sweet words...I love each and every one of them <3
