Happy Labor Day-2011

Hi you all,

Happy Labor Day to all of you. Mine will be celebrated with family, but one of our sons can't be with us because of his tour in Afghanistan. I would like to wish a great day to all the working people on the holidays such as this: The police dept., fire dept., the hospital and health service workers and of course all our men and women in uniform that can't be with their family's today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do to make our lives better.

 This card came about from a sketch I saw at Sketch N Stash #65 and used it for the basis of this card. Everything about this card is easy! Just about all the cuts are sqaures or cut from a square. The red squares came from a 1" punch, the holographic red triangles came from the same punch just cut on the diagonal (paper came from Jo-Anns), and the vellum and the background piece were cut to a specific size square. The ribbon added some texture to the card but stayed right with the theme of the card. The only piece that was cut by machine was the Star and that came from Doodlecharms cartridge and 1.5". The stamp is from a Close to My Heart collection. Red, White and Blue ribbon I used for the border came from Jo-Anns.

These particular people shine each and everyday! So don't forget to Thank them for their service when have the chance.
