Canada Day Blog Hop!

Happy Canada Day!  Thanks for joining me in celebrating with a blog hop! I got together with a small group of Card Making Canadians on Facebook (from all over Canada) that wanted to have a fun blog hop to Celebrate Canada Day! Today we're sharing with you cards that have been created with either Canadian products, a Canadian theme or Canada's colours! We hope they inspire you!  The full list of participants is at the bottom of this post :)

I will be selecting one random comment from one random blog on the hop to win a $20 gift certificate for our online store, so please leave comments along the hop! :)   ***Prize has been awarded!  Congrats to Romaine***

Here's what I created for you today:

I've used stamps by a great Canadian company, Kraftin' Kimmie, papers by My Mind's eye, and some maple leaf ribbon from the store!  It's a pretty simple card with a bit of tissue tape by Tim Holtz for texture.  I used the current sketch by The Sweet Stop.

Next up on the hop is Tracy from Ontario!
