It's A Holiday

Happy Labor Day!

I hope you are finding some way to enjoy this day (and hopefully you have the day off from work!) My husband and I have taken our son Brock to the apple orchard today to pick apples. It's a family tradition that he looks forward to every year. So while you're here checking out my blog, I'm probably munching on an apple and enjoying a beautiful late summer day.

That being said, I am VERY glad you're checking out my blog today because I have a couple of challenges to tell you about.

THEME: Color with Markers

September 2 - 8

This challenge was such a fun one for me - because I absolutely LOVE to color! ;)

Here's my card:

Great job on both cards. I love the Labor Day one. That's what I would have loved to be doing, instead I was doing the next best thing - crafting!
