A St. Patrick's Day message and prizes

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

I'm thrilled to see that you've dropped by to toast, prost and cheers the day away!

In honor of this special day, you who leave a comment, erm, toast on this post before Friday, March 26 will be entered to win a six pack of Guinness can flats! Yay!

What do you mean you don't know what I'm talking about? Didn't you see my post about the Bigz die and tattered flower magnet thing?

Ah well. We're all too busy to catch every last thing, aren't we?

Basically, the deal is that an aluminum drink can is good to cut down and use as a product to die cut ... except it's too small to cover an entire Bigz die surface so the whole die image doesn't cut. But then! Bring in the Guinness cans (or any of the alcohol-filled beverages in a taller-than-average aluminum can).

These respectfully-emptied cans cut down to fit nicely on the die with a bit remaining to use for whatever a crafter wishes.

Luckily they also fit well inside of a six by nine inch Duck brand bubble wrap envelope! Because that means prizes of aluminum for you!

Plus, don't forget my promise to prior followers: If you're in that group, leave a toast and win in the random choosing, I'll throw in a few extra sheets of Guinness aluminum!

And, here's a real challenge for you: If you leave a toast with an Irish poem, saying or wish that I've never heard before ... I won't enter you in the random drawing ... you'll automatically receive a package of aluminum flats!

OK ... I've got one to help you before I sign off for the day ...

Here's to a temperance supper,
With water in glasses tall,
And coffee and tea to end with --
And me not there at all!


  1. That is a lot of Guinness you have consumed! not preggers are you it is said to be especially good for expectant Mum's LOL. Many of us Brits have a good dollop of both Viking and Celt in us we are well mixed with movement between the two islands over the millennium! XOXO Zoe

  2. My friends are the best friends
    Loyal, willing and able.
    Now let’s get to drinking
    All glasses off the table!

    luv ya - sherry

  3. Happy St. Paddy's Day! Here is to you!

    When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven.

  4. Ok here we go have taken your challenge
    "Why should you never iron a 4-leaf clover?"
    You don't want to press your luck.......and heres another one.......
    "In heaven there is no beer......thats why we drink ours here"......
    Loads of deep thinking Annette x

  5. Happy St Patricks Day to you, if I had been earlier I would have said,' And the top of the morning to you.'
    But as its evening here, how about this.....
    Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups, alcohol, caffine, sugar and fat.

  6. Oh, yes! I do remember that post and the beautiful flower magnets!!

    May your pockets be heavy—
    Your heart be light,
    And may good luck pursue you
    Each morning and night.

    Happy St. Patty's Day, my friend!! :)

  7. Here's one for you:
    Erin Go Bragh-less!
    You have to say it rather quickly to get the full effect.....

  8. oh do I have a Irish toast for you, but can't share it on here. I'd be banned from blogspot, so I send you a p.m. its from my Irish Grandfather and he was quite the drinker. LOL
    hugs Lynn
