Oh Blarney!

The Hambo Hoedown is full of Blarney this week! That's right...this week's challenge is to use Monkey Irish, any other Hambo image, or any image of your choice and  incorporate rainbow colors in your project. I used Monkey Irish that I got free for playing in last week's challenge, and used rainbow colors and rainbows on my card.

I thought this paper was perfect for the challenge. I used 5 different colors of twine for a rainbow effect. Did you know that a small scalloped oval makes a good cloud! This will make a perfect St. Patty's Day card for someone special.
Now for a real challenge, try kissing the Blarney Stone! The famous Stone is set in the wall of the of Blarey Castle 83 feet above the ground. To kiss it you have to lean over backwards (grasping an iron rail) from the parapet walk of the battlements.

 Here I am getting ready to kiss The Blarney Stone...

 Here's my hubby kissing The Blarney Stone...
