This past weekend was the annual "Guy Town" at our house. My husband is a displaced South Shore, MA native. He is one of a group of guys that have known each other since kindergarten. Each September, for the past twelve years or so, three of them come to VA to play in a golf tournament with David. As our family grew, they stopped staying with us and now stay in a hotel, but we host them for meals and Sunday football. My kids absolutely love these guys and go a little berserk when they are here.
As a result, I was too tired to participate in the A Muse Fall Pajama Party on Saturday night. I ended up playing along last night with all the challenges and I'm ready to share!
The first challenge was to create a card inspired by your favorite Halloween candy. While I love candy corn, I really prefer the m & ms that come out of the treat bags for a quick chocolate fix.
Challenge # 2 was to create a card using fall colors. I made this card for someone who is super nice and always has a kind word for me. She has the card already, so I am glad to not spoil a surprise.
The third challenge was to create a card based upon a fall TV show. One that my husband and I love to watch together is "30 Rock." It is such a crazy show, but there are so many sly jokes that I always find myself snickering at it. Inside I wrote, "I want to go to there," which is something that Liz Lemon likes to say.
The final challenge was to make a thank you card. If you noticed, I made three of the cards with natural white card bases, for simplicity's sake. This card could not be easier. I didn't even use my stamp positioner.
So that is my PJ Party round up. I also worked on a calendar idea that I hope to share soon. I have to mail it out to my newest niece tomorrow!
