Card Class Photos And St Patrick's Day Card!

 Click Here for the Creative Cutter Room Challenge!!

Once a month my Daughters invite their friends over and I teach them how to make cards. They make two cards each. One for which ever Holiday is upcoming and then a Birthday, Thank you, get well etc.

Here are some of the cards they made:

They love it! We usually have 8-10 girls come. We ask each person to bring $1.00 that goes to the American Cancer Society. I pre-cut all the cricut cuts and card bases before they arrive and all the rest is used from scraps. Aren't they great?!

Here is the card my little one made for St Patrick's Day:

Isn't she getting so good?? Look at those straight cuts!

She would like to enter it into:

I treasure all the special cards my chickie makes!

Ok so a family tradition that we have is setting up a Leprechaun trap! Every year I tell my girls they should not do it because Leprechauns are tricksters!
Here is the trap my little one made this year:

Isn't this fab?? We even made gold bars out of card stock and gold embossing powder that we hung inside.

But she was sooo upset this morning when she found this:

 It reads:
So you're trying to catch me while I look for the gold
I am a smart trickster haven't you been told
Well listen I am a little leprechaun and I got away and this here is the scoop
For trying to catch me I have left you a surprise it is my lucky leprechaun poop

Ok so she did not find it as funny as I did, she used a tissue and flushed the leprechaun poop down the toilet and claimed she is never going to try and catch a Leprechaun again!

  2. What a great thing to do with the girls! Yes they are very good! Your little one's "trap" is just too cute and love the message she was left! This will be a memory to last forever and bring lots of laughs as she gets older! Thanks for sharing with us at SSIC!

  3. OMG, that is the funniest thing I've ever seen! My husband was reading this over my shoulder, and we both laughed out loud as we read the part of how she got rid of the leprechaun "evidence". I love the idea of the card classes too, we might start something like that. Thank you so much for entering the Thankful Thursday challenge :o)
