In between greeting minions, ninjas, Patriot's players, zombies and Winnie the Pooh, I was running back and forth to my craft room to try and complete my card for the Paper Players sketch challenge. So, my evening went like this. . . Run downstairs, cut one strip, run upstairs, toss Twix into plastic pumpkins, run downstairs, stamp two images, run upstairs, throw a Snickers bar at Skeletor. Maybe he wasn't Skeletor, perhaps I'm dating myself. . . I guess the three Peanut Butter cups (hey, don't judge) I ate in between the card making/candy tossing marathon are completely negative calories due to all that running around.
So, does anyone else see the total irony in Halloween? I mean, ALL year long we teach our children to NEVER take candy from strangers. Then BAM! BOOM! FREE-FOR-ALL! On this one night, we tell them it's perfectly okay to knock on strangers doors and accept anything they are willing to put into your pillowcase!
Anyway, before I digress, here is the Paper Players sketch:
And here is the card that I made for the challenge. It is going to be a birthday card for my Nascar loving father. Did you miss this very cool "At the Races" stamp set, oh, so many years ago, when Stampin' Up sold it? Well, I sure did and I won't even tell you what I paid for it on eBay! I'm pretty sure I could get just as much for my liver on the black market. . .
