Canadian Blog Hop! (Celebrate World Card Making Day!)

Happy World Card Making Day!
At Creative Accents we're celebrating the day with a Card Crop in our studio- it will be fun to see how many cards get completed today, but regardless of numbers it's sure to be a great day!

We're excited to also be celebrating with a Canada-wide blog hop featuring over 30 Canadian bloggers & card makers! Whatever it is that brought you to our blog today, we hope you'll take some time to HOP along with us and see some great Canadian talent! We have so many stops along the way, that we've divided the hop into two parts. This is your first stop for this part of the hop, when you're done we hope you'll find some time to hop over and do the rest of the hop!

Without getting too wordy, here's the card I made for you today:
I've used a soon-to-be-released-as-rubber stamp from Graphicat Designs, a brand new Canadian stamp company located here in Williams Lake, BC! I'm proud to be part of their design team and to carry these entertaining stamps in our store here.

Papers: Authentique & Girl's Paperie, Ribbon: May Arts (the purple was coloured to match with Copics), Flowers: Prima & Petaloo, Die Cut: QuicKutz.

I am also offering some CANDY today... all I ask is that you follow this blog and leave a comment on this post! I'll select a random winner to receive a card making prize pack, which will include stamps from some Canadian companies, ribbon & a random mix of 6x6 papers, including some that I used on my card!

Next up, hop on over to pay a visit to GAIL!

Here's a full list of stops in case you get lost along the way! Please note there are two parts to this hop, we'd love to have you visit every blog along the way so you can start the second part at Nicole's blog.
