Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!

Well, does everyone has their corn beef and cabbage ready?  We're all going to Jennifer's house on Sunday to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!  I wanted to finish up my goodies for the Wellness Center today so my daughter can take them on Monday.  I saw these cuties on Pinterest and saved them knowing I would want to make some.

They came together pretty fast.  I used my two different SU tag punches and adhered a shamrock on each one that my friend Denise had punched out for me with her shamrock punch - thank you!

Then I filled my cello bags with some green M&M's.  I punched a small hole in the bag and the tag and tied my tag on with 1/8" ribbon and I was done.  All in all I made 30 treats.  The only thing that slowed me down was tying the ribbons.  I guess as one gets older the eyes go and one gets all thumbs.  The girls offered to help but they were eating too many M&M's, so I was on my own!  In case you are interested, I ordered the green M&M's on Amazon.  I didn't realize how many ways you can order these great candies.

We're going to try and melt some green chocolate this weekend and decorate some pretzel sticks and send some of those along as also.  Well, our weather has warmed up and the snow is finally melting and I can see some of my lawn again.  With Easter early this year, I hope the weather stays warm or we will be looking for our eggs in the snow!

I have entered this post on Cardztv Challenge - Create a Treat Box or Bag.

Everyone in the Pansy Patch wishes you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Oh, they'll love this basket full of treats! You must keep them pretty happy over there. Fun with a purpose! We just had corned beef and cabbage recently so probably won't have it again right away, but I'll buy some while it's on sale.
