Happy Labor Day Weekend! I hope you are all enjoying good weather or if not so good, that you are still having a fun one! I have an extended weekend coming up with an extra day off on Tuesday, so no work for 4 days!!!!!!! I did have a day full of mostly chores starting out with getting the oil changed in my car and if you don't want to be there all day, you have to get there early. Even though I was there at 7:30, I was still No 6 in line. With the oil change, rotating the tires, balancing the wheels, new wiper blades and then being told I really needed a transmission flush I was there until 10. Luckily I took my Kindle Fire along with me, so I was entertained while I waited.
Well, one of the other things I did today was finish up my card for the Gingerloft Challenge. This fortnight's these is Birds of a Feather, so you must use an image of a bird on your card. I chose Two Cardinals from the Gingerloft store. I love watching a pair of these at my bird feeders in my back yard. They are so beautiful and have such a pretty song.
I am submitting my card for these challenges:
