Ready? Set. Go!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 18th month!  We are now coming to the end year #2!

Jeanette provided the challenge for October and she posted an interesting challenge:  Jeanette got her first pair of glasses in 1978.  She remembered being amazed at the things she could see that had been hidden before without her knowing it.  She had us research for facts/trivia/etc. from the year 1978 and then take something we discover from that year and use it in someway to make a card. So--off I went to search for something from 1978.  There were many choices, but the top 2 TV shows that year were Laverne and Shirley along with Happy Days.  Bingo!  They were two of my favorite shows as they were set in Milwaukee!  I have lived in a suburb outside of Milwaukee since 1979!  They used many local names and places in the show--it was fun to watch each episode.  And, what made Milwaukee famous--Beer!  And, those funny ladies both worked at Shotz Brewery. I knew the route I was going to take.  Ready?  Set.  Go!

I used a stamp set that I have had for a few years, but I am not sure it has ever been inked up.  I remember buying it at a stamp show in Madison.  It has a huge beer mug image with the word Cheers printed all over it.  The set also has some fun sentiments-so I picked a birthday sentiment.  I hope my friends like my memory of 1978!

Here is the inside of my card:

WOW! Who knew that two popular tv shows of 1978 were perfect for your stamp set (unused) and your locale! Awesome job of research and fabulous card, Barb!
