Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Each year we are invited to the Gilliand’s for a party on the exact day and each year to show my appreciation for their friendship I take a homemade card  and Pistachio Bundt Cake (it’s green inside).   Today’s card is the one I’m taking this year. Using the same template I did for a baby shower invitation, I made a few modification to the legs and arms  and turned the onsie into the little green suit leprechaun’s wear.

St Patricks Day

Check out some interesting facts about Leprechauns.

Leprechauns are a type of fairy in Irish folklore:

  • According to legend if a human catches a leprechaun that leprechaun must grant that human three wishes in exchange for his freedom.
  • There are no female leprechauns.
  • Leprechauns are shoemakers.
  • Some stories say they hide their gold coins in a pot at the end of the rainbow.
  • Did you know that Leprechauns originally wore red! According to the book Legends and Stories of Ireland published in 1831, leprechauns wore red and a cocked (tri-cornered) hat, shoes and buckles.
  • According to legend Leprechauns dance the Irish jig so much they wear out their shoes.
