Being the first Monday in September, we are celebrating Labor Day here in the U.S., so what better than to have a challenge to honor workers and their achievements! We want to challenge you to create a project about working or an occupation - or even what Labor Day means to you. This could be about a job you have, had, or wish you had. Or maybe even a layout about what your kid wants to be when they grow up. Or cards to thank someone in an occupation such as a teacher, doctor, delivery person, etc., we can't wait to see your work.
We are very lucky to have Teresa guest designing with us again this week:
Hi, my name is Teresa, I am a single parent to Tyler who is 20 and away at University. I live in Sittingbourne, Kent in the United Kingdom and I am currently working as a Bakery Section Leader in my local Supermarket, but in my spare time I love to make cards.
I have been crafting on and off for many years, starting with knitting and cross stitch. After a back operation in 2013, I found myselft with lots of spare time and decided to set up a blog to start showing my cards and I haven't looked back since.
My passion is colouring with my Copic and ProMarkers. With many young boys starting out in their careers at this time of year, I decided to make a good luck card. I have used a digital stamp and digital paper, keeping it clean and simple.
Be sure to visit her at her blog and tell her hello: http://redobsessioncards.blogspot.co.uk/
My occupation is a chemical engineer so I created a chemistry themed card.
I started subbing in my kids' school last year, after being a stay at home mom for nearly 10 years. My son made my first day of school sign and took my picture, like I make him do on his first day of school.
Labor Day weekend falls on the birth of my oldest child. So I decided to do a "Then and Now" page with his birth story.
