cute! i'm doing one on Friday!!
I really like it... the dots are fun! You did a good job and his co-workers, I'm sure, are very appreciative.
(You must practice a lot; your stars and borders are very well done.)
Now I'm thinking I should make one for my dh to take to work!!!
I like it! Love the colors!
I was thinking the same thing JanH... sending one to work with my husband. Of course, my kids would probably want me to make a second one to have here at the house, too.
MrsMom... did you just freehand the shape of the shamrock or did you outline it somehow first and then fill in?
Jan...actually I don't practice that much. Those are supposed to be rosettes, not stars. They did come out looking more like stars, though. Some of them were really good and others...not so much. Do you think the shell border is good? I haven't practiced that much, either.
For the shamrock I took a heart cookie cutter and put 3 (slightly overlapping) hearts on it and then placed the rosettes on it and filled it in.
Yes...DH's co-workers are very appreciative! I had a cake for each week of course 1 and then last week was the first week of course 2 (with no cake) so on Monday everyone was asking where the cake was. I told him to tell them I would do one for this week.
I think it is very cute! Shamrock and your border looks perfect, but I just love the dots and colors! Great choice! Jen
