CCEE1910: What does your name mean?

Hi friends!
I'm excited to be the hostess for the CCEE Stampers Challenges
for the month of March!

Monday (3/4) was Fun Facts about Your Name Day.
The challenge - what does your name mean?
(and if the name can't be found, 
create a card based on the letters in your name.) 

Kelly is an Irish surname having been used since the 20th century
and it means 'warrior.'
To research it further, it's anglicized from the Gaelic "Ceallaigh',
an Irish byname meaning 'bright-headed and 'frequenting churches.'
I sure love that!

I went with 'warrior', the most updated meaning
and I used a Kraftin Kimmie Artemis stamp.

I've colored the image with a hybrid Copics and promarkers 
and added it to a card base with bright colors.
The sentiment is from another stamp company but matched so well!

Do you know what you name means?
It's so fun to research it!

If you'd like to create a card, too, head over to the CCEE blog
and follow the linky - we'll stop by and visit!
You can also see what the DT chose to create this week! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
