I do have to work tomorrow, but that's ok as we are closed on Monday and I totally intend to enjoy the day off.  As I mentioned yesterday we are suppose to go to the M&M's choir concert today, but it will depend on if the rain stays away.  lol.. I guess we'll see. 
As I am typing this up on Thursday night for tomorrow's challenge I had better get right to my card so that I can get to bed before to much later.   Over on TGF's FFF challenge blog today you will see that the challenge is to make a card of your favorite Holiday.  I think it took me longer to come up with my answer than it did to make my card once I had the answer.  As you can see I picked Halloween.  Now, this has not always been one of my favorites as Christmas has always been my number one.  However ever since the kids were born I would make their costumes and then it got to be were after we had taken them out to Trick-or-treat and show all of the families their cuteness they would start deciding what they wanted to be for the next year's Halloween.   I have been scrapbooking this event every year since the first one where Mitchell was a little ghost in his jammie.  Then when Madison came along Mitchell was a polar bear that could walk all by himself and Madison was a strawberry complete with painted on seeds.  Even now at 12 & 13 they both get every excited to come up with something to be so that they can go to the local church and play games and get candy.  I used to think this was too old for it, but they are very good about letting the younger kids get their candy.  So, thanks to my M&Ms I just love Halloween now.  I see a whole different side of the holiday than I ever did before.  How could I NOT pick Halloween.  lol....
So head over to the Farm Fresh Challenge blog and check out what the awesome DT has decided for their cards.  Don't forget to play along too so that you can win more of The Greeting Farm's awesome stamps.  
Well everyone have a great weekend.  I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Awesome card Lisa! It's hard to pick a favorite holiday, they all have their own fun about them! But I do love Halloween and making halloween cards, and this own is great, love it!
I hope the rain stays away so they can have the concert in the park tonight, that just sounds like so much fun!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend! :)
