Lucky Friend with Tammy

Hi Bluebird friends! With St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to create a themed card, featuring four leaf clovers, a “Leprechaun” mouse (starring Field Mice), and a bold Kelly green title.

Then, using a paintbrush, I splattered some water and then...

Once again, on...
