You have to love stamping... it gives you the chance to customize any card to any occasion! I'd bet you some big bucks that even Hallmark doesn't have a "Happy Halloversary" card in their roster.
Yes, today is Halloween and my wedding anniversary rolled up into one happy day. Those who know us well aren't surprised that we'd get married on such a day, but let me tell you -- we sure had a BLAST! Now we get to celebrate our special day by "trick or treat"ing with the kids and just being merry. I wouldn't change our Halloversary for anything.
Here are the cards that Brent & I exchanged earlier today (you'll see he went traditional... sigh) so you can see that real men do stamp.
I admit that I laughed at the holly image on his card, but he just shrugged and said he'd found it lying about on my table so he went for it. I was very pleased to hear he used my scrap drawers for the cardstock pieces, and didn't go for the full sheets instead :)
To better celebrate my Halloversary with you all, I thought some yummy BLOG CANDY would be in order! To enter to win, simply enter a comment below sharing either a HALLOWEEN or ANNIVERSARY memory with me. Bonus points if you have a HALLOVERSARY (but I sincerely doubt it).
What will the lucky winner get? Hmmmm... is it a TRICK or a TREAT? You'll have to wait and see! A random draw of all participants will be held Monday November 5th when I am back from the Hobby Show.
Some favorite Halloween memories are making costumes for my grandson. He would choose who he wanted to be, and I would have to try and figure out how to make the costume so it would meet with his idea of what it should look like. What fun that was.
I have never heard of a Halloversary but thanks for the great idea! I am guilty of procrastinating and haven't made him a card yet so when I get home from work I will have to use that.
My favourite anniversary memory (year 3 yesterday) was this year! We went to the zoo, zoo, zoo (how about you, you, you???) in Toronto. We had one of our first dates there and it brought back good memories!
One of my most interesting Halloweens is when my husband and I went dressed as bunches of grapes--me green and him purple. I attached balloons all over. they turned out fine but we could not sit down or go thru doorways.
My hubby was born on the 13 (two days after my anny) and he was 13 on that day many years ago and had his photo in the paper. The worst was our 25th when I got sick and stayed sick for 2 years but its 10 years later and I am still treating the kiddies.
Thanks for the chance to play.
Many favorite memories taking my kids out Trick or Treating....
My son always came up with great ideas for costumes..The best one was Sherlock Holmes...he said,
that Ewok was his favorite [home made costumes]..This year we took his daughter out for her first Halloween[she was a giraffe]
We have a New Yearversary! LOL It really doesn't have the same ring as Halloversary. But its so fun to do the count down to the New Year, and celebrate another year we survived together!
Happy Halloversary! I was married in October too...the 19th to be exact. My one fav halloween memory has to be when I got to be a clown. My grandmother made me this fabulous clown costume with a tall pointed hat she stuffed with tissue paper. I've got a picture of it and I can remember being so proud to have a real costume and not one from the store.
My fave Halloween memory is when my sister and I along with our 2 friends went out at singers/dancers. I dressed as a "flapper" (from the 40's I think, and Wendy (sis) was Madonna. Can't remember what our friends were, but I know we had fun!
Someone there happened to have a camera (not unusual given the costume party thing), and our picture was taken.
We married two years later in the fall, and as a wedding gift a friend tracked down that photograph which we had never seen and had forgotten it even existed. How many people are lucky enough to have a photo of the night they met their spouse framed and on their fireplace mantle?!?
My fun memory is this:
Growing up, my mom would always make homemade soft tacos...with home make shells on Halloween. One Halloween, a few years ago, I happened to be home. So I requested this long remembered dinner so that my kids could enjoy it too. Well, those shells did not taste very well. And my mom...she said that they never tasted very well!
I guess some memories really do improve with age!
So Happy anniversary to you too.
