Mine went out Friday! I so hope everyone likes them. There isn't as much inspiration on the internet for St. Pat's day cards as there was for Valentine's Day!

Mary Ann,

Now I am really feeling the pressure!!! LOL

Gotta add some glitter and I think my PCs will be ready to go out tomorrow.

I've received cute cards already from Shishie, Califgal, Cr8tve, and my mom! With all these shamrocks I should be having lots of good luck!

Hi all,

Glad to see so cute PC's arriving. I got one from Happy Erm. Thanks much Erma.

I was at my sister's about a month ago. When I make PC's I usually send her one. She had all the Valentine PC's that I and DD Angelinamor sent over the past 3-4 years. She put little round magnets on them and stuck them on the fridge. They looked so nice!! I thought it was such a good idea. Of course you need room on the fridge which I am a little short of.

Mary

I made this pc today, for a friend that is dealing w/ some medical issue! It isn't like any of the other St Patty pc's I sent out, so think it's safe to post a pic! Wink
{I just wove some ribbon and sewed them down}

Looks like I've got mine. All displayed on the fridge. My guests have more fun reading them and oohing and aahing over them. Thank you so much for all the beautiful work. Mine have been mailed out too. You should get them tomorrow or Saturday.

EvelynB,
I love how you have your PCs displayed! They look great!


I am glad the PCs I made are starting to arrive. The coins are plastic. I got a bagful at Joann's. They come in green and gold. I bought them a couple years ago and have been wanting to make "Pot o' Gold" PCs since then, so now was my chance!!

Califgal, I hope the coin brings you lots of luck! (Don't put it in a machine by mistake) ;-)

Mandy, thanks for posting my PC on pinterest. Now I feel famous - LOL!

oh i see you received my stepdancing cards! was afraid they wouldn't make it in time. my daughter does irish stepdancing as an adult and this year they have organized irish dance flash mobs at different venues, including a huge mall near here.

yes angelinamor, you are famous. i need to check to see if anyone "repinned" your pot o gold card.

Cr8tve1,

I am glad to hear your PC arrived in time. I just talked to my mom and she still hasn't received the PC I sent her. I was worried the midwestern/eastern addresses might not get there in time. Maybe it's just her post office...

Angela, I haven't received yours yet either! I've been watching to see if Patsy received mine, but don't think so and I mailed way before you did!

Mary Ann,

The post office delivery has been... variable! I don't know how some mail can go coast to coast just fine and other deliveries are so delayed. It was like that when we mailed the Christmas stockings!

Well, this just gives you guys an excuse to celebrate longer!! LOL

Shishie, you haven't received the one from me yet? I sent it the same time as the others. Is your mail usually on time? I can make another one and send if you don't get it in the next day or two.

Since all of mine have been received, here's a pic of them together. The pot of gold is a snowglobe type gold under the snowglobe and the irish one is woven fabric. I tried to make each different, but it appears Fishingwidow, Angeliamore and I think alike!

Shishie, guess what I got in the mail yesterday - your postcard! I don't know why it was sent back to me unless they couldn't read the address? IDK, I put it in an envelope and mailed it to you so I hope at least you get it! Sorry for the delay. It was processed on the 6.th
