"Irish Eyes Are Smilin'"

An Irish Blessing

You've blessed me with friends and laughter and fun;
With rain that's as soft as the light from the sun.
You've blessed me with the stars to brighten each night.
You've given me help to know wrong from right.
You've given me so much, so please Lord give me, too,
A heart that is always grateful to You.

 

I love St. Patrick's Day! Mid-March holds the promise of a fresh, green Springtime, and even though there still may be snow blanketing the ground the air is ripe with the scent of... corned beef and cabbage, of course! 

Our Thursday morning painting class is planning an outing to our favorite local dining spot for lunch on the 16th (for the corned beef, yes).  Although you're likely not able to join us in our glorious sodium nitrate feast, you can celebrate the Celtic holiday with this FREE PATTERN DOWNLOAD - "Paddy O'".  Click the link for an Instant Download!
Paint him on a wood cupcake cutout or transfer the pattern outline to the surface of your choice.  The color photo could also be used as a transfer. (Get more information about transfer methods here. The Graphics Fairy)

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven
half an hour before the devil knows you're dead
