Friends and Labor Day

It's Monday!!  We have a Friends of Speedy TV challenge for you.  It's number 35 and today's theme is Labor Day.  I don't really celebrate it because I am always too busy celebrating my own birthday.  The long weekend is usually my birthday weekend and after forty plus years, I associate this holiday with myself and the beginning of school.  Only once in my education can I remember starting school on my birthday.  However, I have started school twice on my birthday since I began working for a school district.  This year my birthday falls on the holiday so I won't have to resume work on my special day.
Today's card is a birthday card in honor of how I think about the Labor Day holiday!  Why don't you play along with the challenge and maybe win a prize next Monday.  The set that is up for grabs is the fun set called Fabulous Dogs!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This is really beautiful. Soft and masculine! Great card! P.S. my son's b-day is the 31st, so he will forever have his birthday on Labor Day weekend too :-)
