Labor Day Greetings

I hope that all of you who live in the USA are having a good Labor Day weekend!  We've had just a taste of "Isaac" here in Ohio, but a nice weekend for the most part.  Sure hope those who are without power and still not back in their homes will get some relief soon!

Again, out of town company and three days of work staining my porch have kept me away from stamping and blogging.  Took some time last night to make this little card for the Simon Says Stamp "anything goes" challenge:




I have no idea why this card has a pink cast to it, but it is white!  A small piece of some BoBunny patterned paper was on my desk, so I stamped the Hero Arts poppies on it and colored them in with pencils.  Sentiment is also Hero Arts.  It was then layered over a square of Colorbok patterned paper and placed on a square card with dimensional dots.  Green gems perk it all up a bit.  The orange ribbon was just a scrap that I had in my ribbon bowl. :*)

Thanks for visiting!

Staining the porch is a hard job - you have been laboring, Joy! Hope you take today off and do something fun! Love your pretty card today, a lovely transition to fall with the orange!
