St. Patrick's Day Decor Plate

I made this last year, and when I pulled it out of the box, I love it just as much as last year.
Ever since college, I've always loved St. Patty's Day - not sure why, but I think I just liked wearing green and dressing up fun. I still have that clover anteanna headband that my mom sent me as a care package that year. My friend Emily was always fun and dressed up with me. I always seem to have really tall friends - I think I try to make up for my 4'11" shortness through them :)
Anyway, back to the plate. I cut out the black and green vinyl with my cricut and then spaced out the words and separated them with mini-clovers. My favorite is the clover in the middle.
I used the program "sure-cuts-a-lot" and I think the font I used was "paddy whack" or something that sounds like that. . .

    What kind of Cricut do you use? I'm looking into getting one and I want to make sure that I get one that will cut vinyl.

  4. That's so cute! It needs to be filled with mini stuffed potato skins (that's just the Irish in me talkin').
    Have a great week,
