Well, Moxie Fab World has done it again. They've gone and hosted a fun challenge in celebration of their 365 Cards issue, in which a card is featured for every day of the year. This challenge is appropriately named Random Fun because Cath wants us to make cards for random holidays and observances.
I have to tell you that this is so up my alley it's not even funny. My FB friends know that I appreciate strange random observances based on my posts. Let's see, I like to celebrate National Pierogi Day in October b/c my son looooves them. Then there is Ice Cream month in July because I love ice cream. And if I recall correctly National Donut Day just passed. Oh, and my BFF and I made up our own holiday based on an inside joke from way back in our college days. I can't share it b/c, well, you have to be there to appreciate it.
So when Cath issued this challenge, I was all over it. I have a fun sentiment stamp by Joy's Life that I have been dying to use and now I have the perfect excuse. Below is a card for World Egg Day, held on the second Friday of October. Ah yes! My crafty friends from all around the world can embrace and appreciate this special day, because it is a global observance, brought to us by the International Egg Commission. Why, you ask? Because according to the IEC's web site "all in all, the egg is a quite unique food - compact, affordable, with
long lasting freshness and packaged superbly by nature. It’s enjoyed by
people from every corner of the world and is a major contributor to a
healthy nutritious diet. It’s worth shouting about, so remember to watch
out for World Egg Day next October."
Here is my card in honor of this glorious day. It may crack you up, but the egg is really nothing to "yolk" about. (Ha, I'm killing myself here!)
