Cards for Labor Day

Happy Labor Day everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying your day off. We are taking it easy as my little one is getting sick. I'm not surprised, since they just started school. So her and I decided to do some crafting this morning. Citrus Tree Studio has a facebook page and there was a fun card challenge this weekend. It was to use a Paper Crafts sketch for a card. We were all over this!
My first card was based off a sketch by Betsy Veldman:


I used some Crate Paper that i've been hoarding for a while now. Pretty colors! I used a sketch by Lucy Abrams for this next card:


And here are the cards that my daughter made. She used the same two sketches, plus a third.


She was especially proud of the one front and center. She loved layering the squares and picking out and attaching the brad to the middle of the flower all by herself. We had fun crafting together!!

Hope you all have a great Labor Day...thanks for stopping by!

What a FUN day! I hope your little one is better soon! Tell her I like the Thank-you card best, but then I've always had a soft spot for true art!
