A freckled face Leprechaun!

I've got a few packages to mail, including one for my secret partner in Viv's Leprechaun swap.
 Earlier this week, I went searching through my craft room supplies and came across a package of plastic freckled little boy faces that I had purchased at an estate sale this past summer.  
I often pick up gently used crafting supplies thinking that I'll eventually find a purpose for them.
I decided that with some green felt, lace, cardboard and a small picture frame, I could turn this freckled face lad into a Leprechaun.
I think he's pretty cute.
Hopefully, my swap partner does too.  I've got a few other St. Patrick's day goodies that I'll share on another post. Happy soon-to-be weekend!

Just reading the comments, it's plain to see how much we like you, Kim! You are so creative and so generous. Your leprechaun would be a fun companion piece to the bunny faces you made last year. I hope you made one for yourself...lol!

Kim,
Once again I am playing catch up! I am still debating if i will take the time which I have so little of right now with the impending Craft fair , to decorate for St. Pat's Day.
But after seeing your cute St. pat's goodies, I am quite tempted!1

Thanks so much for all your visits and kind words!!

Hugs,
Deb
