Is summer really over?!

Happy Labor Day!...can this really be...the unofficial close of summer?  Where has the time gone?! 
Obviously too quick for me - with everything going on, it was almost impossible to find time to partake in my "therapy sessions", but alas the ever so needed 3-day weekend was here, and I conquered it...with enough time to make two cards...aahhhhh, it was nice to be back in the craft room!

Here's what I made today.  The first was for W+9's Color Cue {7} Challenge:

And this one combined two challenges; Waltingmouse's Sketch Challenge #13 (WMSC13) and Embellish's color challenge:

Time to call it a night - kids need baths/showers, and mama needs some dessert (chocolate mint ice cream - yum!!)

Live well,
