Aloha to Summer!

Happy Labor Day to those celebrating in America today. Labor Day is the unofficial last day of summer here and Autumn is just around the corner. The local kids have returned to school already, so I'm posting this card to say good-bye to summer!

The image and sentiment are from Our Craft Lounge while the softly stamped background was done with a Market Street stamps background in pale blue. The tag was found in my stash and I think it was made with my Cricut some time ago. The beach ball was done with a wooden stick stamp, while the circle top on the tag, seashell, & "sun" are old stickers from my stash.
I'm entering this into the Perfect Sentiments PSC89 which is to create a "Hello School or Good-bye Summer card." I'm also entering this into Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground #8.

Have a wonderful Monday and take time to relax and unwind from your labors! It's going to rain here in PA, so that gives me the chance to make some more cards today. The BBQ will be swapped for indoor crockpot cooking today :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Terrific card Carol - I love the way you've done the 'sun'. Hope you're having a good day, plenty of crafting and crockpot sounds a great idea if it's raining!

Hugs, Di xx

So adorable.....I sure don't want to say good-bye to summer, though. Your sun looks fabulous...wish we had some here today. Raining!

Indoor crockpot cooking sounds a ton better than BBQ since we're still over the 100 degree mark around here. No "end of summer" for us right now I'm afraid!
This is so cute Carol. Love the way you did the sun on here - very creative.
