St. Patrick’s Day celebrated throughout the country even though it is not a legal holiday. It is a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture. Celebrations include wearing green (getting pinched if you don’t!), eating corn beef and cabbage, religious observances, crazy parades, Leprechauns, and rainbows with pot of gold at the end. Whenever I forgot to wear green at school when I was young, I told everyone I was Irish so they would leave me alone! It usually worked.
With that being said, a couple of years ago my oldest son brought home an assignment to make a Leprechaun trap. I was not able to work on it due to a work conflict. So my sweet hubby decided to help. I had a vision of what a Leprechaun trap should look like; an elaborately decorated box with tons of green stuff, four leafs clovers, gold coins, etc.. When I saw my husband and son’s version I laughed hysterically and had tears running down my face. My husband took a Lucky Charm’s box, put a sticky rat trap inside and called it a day! I still chuckle thinking about the simplicity of the trap and the difference between men and women. Women are extremely detailed, elaborate and complex, where men are to the point and no fuss, no muss!!!! Needless to say, my son got an A on his assignment and his teacher said it was the most clever Leprechaun trap she had ever seen. Now my hubby is in charge of all projects that come home!
So, with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would share a card I made with our Perfect Layers tool.
