May the 4th be with you!

IMG_0097Most of you very normal people won’t know that today is a special day in certain circles….May 4th is now know as May the 4th as in “May the Force be with You!” Star Wars geeks unite!

I didn’t actually make any of the cards in my post but have taken pictures over the years of other demonstrators’ cards (while attending Stampin’ Up! events) that I know my family would like! I love how they have used our punches to create Star Wars punch art!  Very creative!

IMG_8011You see, my family and I are huge Star Wars fans and have invested a lot of time into loving this story!  I am happy to be able to say that I was the first person in my family to have seen the 1st Star Wars movie, A New Hope, in 1977 at a drive-in movie with a friend.  I then told my parents they had to see the movie too and we went again the very next night. I saw A New Hope seven times that year!  Wouldn’t you know that I polymer3married another Star Wars fan, Tim, and we shared the love with our kids who now know more about Star Wars than I ever will!!!yodaew

So appropriately, today we have watched the 1st movie, quoting all the lines and enjoying it once again!  It is so much fun to share as a family! Given the rainy weekend, we just might make it through a few more Star Wars movies!

May the 4th be with You!

    These cards with their clever punch art are all so adorable and creative, but I have a small problem with the first one. Yoda and Darth Vader, while probably the most iconic characters of the Star Wars franchise, never actually cross lightsabers in glorious battle. See, when Anakin turns to the dark side, Yoda immediately leaves Coruscant for Dagobah, knowing that he will be needed later. Even when Luke hallucinates seeing his father in the swamp with Yoda, Luke is the one that encounters him, not Yoda. And then Yoda dies before Darth Vader does after Darth Vader saves Luke and kills the emperor. So really, the next time Yoda and Anakin meet is when they are in the Force and saying goodbye to Luke on Endor at the end. Mom, I can see you rolling your eyes at me, but someone had to say it! 😛
