Macaron Monday...

What is Macaron Monday?

Well to be honest... something I made up but wouldn't it be great to have macarons every Monday?  I was browsing Pinterest one day and these gorgeous macarons kept popping up.  So much so that I created a Pinterest board for them.  Yep, true story!

I decided to start a Macaron Monday and create something each week that was inspired by macarons...

The first one... I'm sure you can guess why I chose this one...

I created a little gift for hubby.  You know.. a just because kind of gift.  The little box will be filled with some chocolates even though he claims he doesn't like sweets... but they do seem to disappear.

I used some Citrus Bliss paper by Pink Paislee for the pattern paper.  I cut out the Lucky Me sentiment with my Silhouette.   I then decided to put my Sealed with a Love bundle from Stampin' UP! to use - nothing wrong with a green kiss right?  I die cut the little envelope hanging on the card with the Love Notes Framelits, then added a shamrock and a stamped sentiment.  The box was created using the Baker's Box Thinlits die by Stampin' UP! I stitched on the pattern paper before assembling the box. 

The Kissme Sentiment is from SRM Stickers and the gold arrow and heart are from the Hello Lovely Compliments by Close to My Heart. And of course for me... always a touch of twine is needed :) 

Now I couldn't leave without sharing some more green and St. Patrick's Day inspiration... will you be pinch proof?  Click on photos for more information.
