"Kiss Me" I'm kinda Irish...

Okay, not really Irish.  According to my lineage my ancestors hailed from England and Germany.  But, with St. Patrick's day upon us, we all get a little Irish.  Right?

At Copic Marker Scrapbooking, they are celebrating with some new St. Patrick's day digital images.  There is even a free one with the new release.  Please go check it out. In the words of Colleen, the owner of CMS:

St. Patrick’s Day is a beautiful holiday. It celebrates St. Patrick, who evangelized Ireland in the fourth century. He was a Welsh Roman Citizen who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Ireland. After escaping, he later returned to Ireland. It’s said he drove the snakes from Ireland, but that’s a metaphor for the snake torcs that the pagans wore, which were discarded after St. Patrick spread the Gospel. 
Our stamps drawn by Guy Gondron tell the story of St. Patrick, they begin with some of the imagery related to the primitive Irish mythology and move through St. Patrick’s mission. The stamps are available at www.copicmarkerscrapbooking.com Enjoy the story our Design Team is telling with their work…
And here are the designs I worked with as my part of the story.  Please go check out the rest of the teams'!!
