Good Day to those stopping by! FREEBIE ALERT - I'm on a nice designing roll since it's been raining here for several days, and it's just too gooey to go out there in it. Last night I was sorting out a kit I had collected last month through a site's daily download, and I discovered I had missed only one day of the downloads! Wouldn't you know it was the alphabet to the kit that I failed to collect! Darn it! So I looked at the designers preview and decided to do my best to make at least something that would blend that I could use with the cute kit. At any rate, that was the base inspiration for the eight sets of this alpha that I made. That and the fact that this is St. Patrick's Day month and, being of Irish descent, I had to make something to celebrate that!

Today I am giving you this alpha in the three "Irish" colors; green, yellow, and orange. It is upper case A - Z, individual png files at 300 dpi. They are approximately 1.25 inches in diameter. I call them sticker alphas because each letter has a round paper sticker under it. I have left it unshadowed so you can add your own type of shadow style to it. You can easily resize these larger or smaller as you need for your pages. Here is the preview, and the download is below it.


I am providing two different download links in case one of my sites runs out of bandwidth during any given month you can just use the other link.

I  have added layouts for the last two most recent months to my layouts page tab at the top of this home page, so take some time and have a look. It may help you get a tad of inspiration here and there.

My little 9 yr. old granddaughter was in another gymnastics competition this weekend. Wow! She is in good shape to be able to keep up with all that physical activity almost every weekend plus her daily practice at the gym. Fit as a fiddle, that one! So focused also! Out of 96 gals she came in at 2nd in the vault, 5th in floor dance, 9th on the beam, 11th on the bars, and 7th all around. Her scores were up from 9.250 to 9.450, so she did well. There was a score of 9.650 and 9.825, so a couple of girls absolutely "nailed it" well as sometimes happens. I have found in these sorts of competitions that it is brutal because you only have once chance to do it right. Sometimes you are at the top of your game, but sometimes not. I marvel at this type of sport! It's awesome to watch!!

I'm knitting and crocheting like a fiend this winter, so I hope to add some photos and patterns to that page tab above for those of you that like to dabble with sticks and yarns! Such fun!

I need to perform a little maintenance work on the look of this blog. I don't feel like I am very capable when it comes to that, but I see some things have disappeared from linkage in the side column. Must put that on my "to do" list!

Check back often. I will most likely post often this month to give you the other 5 or so colors I did in this alpha above. They are very springy looking and will blend with almost any fun looking kit.

Have a wonderful week! I'm looking forward to the first day of Spring and the return soon of Daylight Savings Time!!
