Slainte Stenciled Celtic Knot - Emerald Green and Kraft

I am way off-season with this card but I don't particularly care.
Who says you can only be in an Irish mindset in March?
Not me.

When I thought about the sentiment, it didn't take long to settle on the Gaelic.
It's reminded me of how much fun the boys and I had at the St. Patrick's Day festival
this year, though.  Celtic music is almost a daily vitamin at our house, and
at the festival we saw some national Irish dancing champions perform.
Their school is just up the road and Robin was totally mesmerized by the performance.
Maybe stepping out will be in his future.  We'll see.

Here are the challenges:
