SPCC #13

Happy Saturday folks! It's a long Labor Day weekend, and we have lots of fun things in store for us here. It's a Buffalo tradition to spend Labor Day at the Zoo, where admission is only $1, and so are rides on the carousel, and so are all concession stand items! The kids are excited enough for the whole family! Plus, we are having a bonfire in the backyard tonight after we are done working on our new patio deck.
For today's card I challenged myself with SPCC #13. At first I was horrified at these colors and thought there was no way I would be able to come up with something. But then something clicked, and here it is!
As you can see, I really mixed things up here! I used the sentiment from Teacher's Apple, but inserted the word "friend" in there (from Friends 'til the End) instead of "teacher"! I also used the little birds from Bird Watching Additions, and a dotted circle stamp from Borders & Corners{Circle}. Some Hibiscus Burst twill, a bit of twine, and two yellow buttons finished it off.
You still have a chance to win a bundle of crafting goodies from me by entering the contest in the previous post, here. The contest ends at 8 pm EST tonight!
Have a wonderful weekend folks, even if you don't celebrate Labor Day.
Thanks for stopping by,
