Happy St Patrick's Day 2011


...Originally, the colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue. Over the years the colour green and its association with Saint Patrick's day grew. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century. He is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity...

AND SO A Happy St Patrick's Day 2011 MUCH LOVE...


May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.

Thanks Gillena...i haven't heard of this day until I started blogging...not sure if in schools they observed...so many Saints, and so many days and no holidays except a prayer along with the morning prayer; so don't remember specifically :)

Okay, the Mother founder (Elias) of our school (Holy Angels Convent Trivandrum, Kerala) was from Ireland...founded in late 1800s..and many Days were observed..That's why i'd a doubt :)

Your design along with the haiga is beautiful. It looks like you did some kind of Gaussian blur to achieve your effects.

Bless you Gillena.

Indeed, applied some green and blue brush stokes and swirled then a few times and added the blur last; Glad you dropped by Chelle, hope you had a good day; much love...
