Happy St. Patricks Day!

Here is the card my Grandson River, who is 7, made for me and his Mom and Dad, when he came to visit  :)  He used bits and pieces from my stash to make this card.

The inside, where he collaged, then put acrylic over all, then added his coloured pictures that also had acrylic over them.   

Here is a close up of the right hand side.   

River also made a Leprechaun catcher by himself.  He painted the ends and did a collage on the sides and top from bits of green pages from magazines.  

If you look to the top of the box, there are two sacks of chocolate gold coins sitting on the little table.  Just looking under the box you can see the rocks River and his sister Eve painted like gold, to attract the Leprechaun.

When I went outside early this morning (because I thought I heard a sound) I took a picture of the box.  But when we looked at the picture, we saw the goodies on the table.  Now, the Leprechaun must have been very close because he brought the chocolate but the gold was still there.  When the kids arrived the goodies were under the box and the gold was gone!!

We saw Leprechaun foot prints in the snow in the driveway.

Thanks for coming to visit, hope you enjoyed reading about our fun morning!
