happy labor day...

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!!

just posting my project real quick today...i have some MAJOR CRAFT shopping to get done...
headed to crafts direct for their huge labor day sale.

i always feel like i have a NEW FOUND wealth of INSPIRATION after finding new craftin' goodies!
my project today is actually a re-created card...do you ever do that?  ...have a card that you like so much that you decide to cre-create it, only with different papers? 
this card was originally posted here.

{ippity} stamps -- sentiment from quotes a'la happy,
butterflies from what matters most
cosmo cricket paper - togetherness mini deck

be sure to check out the {ippity} blog
for your daily dose of stampin' inspiration &
and angie's NEW CHALLENGE!

i found a "labor day" quote that i liked...
enjoy your day!!

Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold.
But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.

i love that quote, i will try to remember to practice it when it is a 'day off'. your card is very lovely too! unlike most others, i am mourning the loss of summer here on the high desert of central oregon. our summer was only 6 weeks long. the rest will be cold, cold, cold!
