For St. Patrick's Day,
we thought we'd venture out of China
and head over to the Emerald Isles.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, the girls and I made friendship cards inspired by the Irish Claddagh. The claddagh ring is often used as a friendship ring, but more commonly as an engagement ring. The heart represents love, the hands represent friendship, and the crown represents loyalty.
We pulled out our cardstock, scrapbooking paper, scissors, glue and markers. I created a printable the girls cut from that includes hands, and various hearts and crowns.
We also found some Irish blessings they wrote inside their cards. Elle is giving her card to her BFF, and Pea is sending hers to her grandmother.
You can find my free printable for an Irish claddagh friendship card, which also includes a few Irish blessings here:
