A Festivus for the rest of us

I have to be honest- I made today's card just for a laugh. Papertrey Ink is having their October blog hop, and I wanted to participate! The challenge is to make a holiday card that is NOT a Christmas card.

I went through the possibilities....Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice- I knew everyone else would be doing these. And then it hit me- Festivus! If you're a fan of Seinfeld, you are probably already familiar with this bogus holiday. I made my card with that in mind, complete with an aluminum Festivus pole!

It's not my best work by far, but it was quick and fun to make. I hope this counts for the hop! :)






Update: I just found out that someone else made a Festivus card too!! You can check out Stacy's here. It's a Festivus Miracle!!
