Friends make life BEAR-able!

Happy Labor Day! What are you doing? We are having a good day. Tom & Bonnie played X-Box "Mind Craft" for a while this morning. It's so fun to watch them play. While they were doing that I was taking everything off of the built-in bookshelves in the den and re-organizing / cleaning up the mess from the grand kids. I'm not complaining. I love organizing and sorting. It was getting pretty messy. Not just from the grand kids though, I have been stacking books up there and squeezing them in places. It was time to get all of that straightened back out so we could actually see what our reading choices are.

Now Tom is caulking the trim in the hall getting it ready to be painted and Bonnie is playing a racing game. I did some online SVG shopping this morning. KaDoodle Bug Designs is having a 75% off Labor Day Sale! Woo-Hoo! I snagged up some cute Teddy Bear cuts. Miss Kate Cuttables has a daily Freebie and Daily Specials and I filled up my cart with tons of stuff there. I love making cards using my Cameo with Stampin' Up cardstock and finishing them off using Mary's Cardz TV Stamps.

This card is made especially for Cardz TV Go-To Gals Linky Party (Toasted Marshmallows) and Craftin' Boutique Chs (thinking of you).  I used a past sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (#15). I love their sketches!!
