Blossom Art and Marjolaine Card set

Hello!  Happy Labor Day!  It's a holiday Monday here in Canada and we are enjoying it resting at home after a busy weekend at the cabin!  The town the cabin is near had a festival this weekend so we enjoyed fireworks, a parade, fun kids activities and a pancake breakfast!  My kids really enjoyed all of this with there cousins!  It's nice to have most of them close in age!

And what a great start to my week to see my back to school card featured at the Twinery Blog today, click here to see it!  You know how much I love my twine from the Twinery!

 Hubby is out of town so it's just me and the kids!  He went to the Labor Day Classic an annual football game between us and another city.  Sadly even though our team has been doing so much better they lost, and bad calls on behalf of the referees in favor of the other team didn't help!  :>  He went with two guy friends and they all stayed at Chad's aunt.  She loves having company!  On Friday night I sat down to make a thank you card for her from the guys and than got quite inspired and made her a little card set!  It took my just a bit over an hour!  





I used papers from Basic Grey's marjolaine paper pad along with stamps by Hero Arts the flowers are from Blossom Art.  I stamped the flowers onto papers that came with the pad.  A doily and vola!  I added perfect pearls in the middle of the flowers!  Really happy with how this came out and really happy that I made a gift for Chad's aunt :>

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Challenge!  This month on there blog they are celebrating Stampember!!  I love anything that has to do with stamps! (Fitting to enter this into the challenge as I purchased the paper pad from Simon Says, lol!!)

Well I am off to dinner at my parents!  Wishing you a great day!
