It's F-F-Friday!!

Yesterday it was blowing a hoolie, luckily today was nice and sunny. Hubby, John, baked me some yummy brownies, (coz it's my birthday tomorrow) so I could take them to work to share with the workmen. I carefully cut the (large crunchy top with a very soft sticky chocolaty centre) 12x12 square into nice man-size chomping pieces, put some on a plate, wrapped a couple more pieces up for the gardener, left one bit for little me and a few more for the 'family' who were out. Off I went telling the two Labrador's to... stay. You've guessed it, by the time I came back from the workmen's cabin and the gardeners greenhouse, the two naughty Labradors and finished off what was left of the brownies!!
They looked up at me as if to say, "Yummy Yum Lyn, that was sooo much nicer than those dried old bones you usually give us! Any more?"
John's promised to make me some more... But enough of that. It's card time! And look, I've made one using my own digi. Most of Tuesday evening I was doodling. It turned out to be a dancing Leprechaun, but by the time I moved from the table, in the sitting room where I'd been drawing, to the hall... I was telling myself. Nope...he's no good. I quickly grabbed another bit of paper, it now being well past midnight, and scribbled this one out in about five minutes... plus the time tidying him up on the computer/Wacom.
I've 3D-ed him and the top bit of the mushroom, coloured with ProMarkers and added a bit of gold glitter to his 'gold'.
I really wanted to add a Good Luck charm or horse shoe, but didn't have any... (I hunted everywhere) even tried to make one using shrink-plastic...but it looked like a lost claw from some vulture-like bird. So I gave up on that idea and used the fiddle and the heart instead.
Freebies.? Well yes (of course) The Leprechaun digi, (until next week, scroll down to download him and join in with Spot The Difference and win a digi ) and the papers, and font. I just knew I had rainbow papers somewhere and remembered they came from Summer Drigg's fabulous blog. It's called, 'Owl Always Love Spring' kit and you can download it HERE
The font is called 'Black Boys On Mopeds' and you can download that HERE
Before I nip off to add those 'green' challenges I've found...
