Under-Appreciated Holiday Challenge #3

[Note: Yeah, I know, it is still January, but since I use these challenges as an excuse to make up projects for my workshops, and since my workshops are in the first half of the month, I need to start two weeks out. K? K.]

When most people think about February, they think of the major holidays. You know: Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, President's Day. But those are appreciated and celebrated holidays, and that's not what this challenge addresses. (Did you notice the way I avoided ending that sentence with a preposition? I was going to say "what this challenge is about", but that would be soooo wrong.) This challenge is all about under-appreciated holidays, so today I bring you National Ferris Wheel Day, which is celebrated on February 14th.

Now do not be alarmed. I am not suggesting anyone make a ferris wheel card. Au contraire! *I* certainly have no plans to do that, but if you are so inclined, please be my guest. I am sure we would all love to see your ferris wheel card. But you can use the theme of the day to be inspired to create your card. Think "circle", maybe even nested circles. Or maybe a circle with "things" hanging off of it. Use your imaginations, peeps!

PS: Thanks to Merry in NJ for mentioning this holiday to me. I really like that it shares a day with another more-celebrated holiday. ;-)

PPS: I will post my card when I find the energy to leave my sick bed and stamp again. ;-(

    me me me!!! You chose my holiday! woohoo! I'm famous! :-)
    I am actually going to make a card for National Ferris Wheel Day; I'm doing a Girls Stamping Day on Sunday with my stamping buddy. I have no idea how to do it but I'll let you know what I come up with...

    Hope you are feeling better. A comfy couch, TV, and some rich and decadent hot chocolate mix are requirements!
