World Card Making Day - CANADIAN Blog Hop!

What an exciting event - cudo's to Tara Nixon of Williams Lake and Creative Accents for setting this all up. To celebrate World Card Making Day, we are showcasing Canadian Card Makers and Scrapbookers  (and what a talented bunch we are too!)  Please grab yourself a coffee and sit back while you enjoy the many and varied talents we want to share with you!

You should be coming here from the blog Lynn's Place.  If you just happened upon this, please go to the beginning to see all the amazing work:

I am thrilled to be showing a card featuring an amazing new Canadian stamp company Graphicat Stamps.  Not only is this company Canadian, it is owned, operated, published and designed by my friend Cheri Carrier who lives here in Williams Lake too.

Now on to the card .......

The Margarita glass, strawberries and saying are all Graphicat Stamps.  It is hard to see but I used glitter ritz on the background of the margarita glass and Rock Candy Distress Stickles around the rim of the glass.  The papers are from Creative Memories The ribbon and bling are from my stash.


Hope you are enjoying the Hop so far.  Next you are off to see the work of another amazing British Columbian, Roxy

Happy World Card Making Day everyone!
