Happy Canada Day!

For those who don't know, my husband is/was/partially Canadian. His mother was from Nova Scotia so we get to celebrate Canadian holidays and US holidays. Woo! Twice the holiday fun! :D

And Allison over at Stampin' When I Can, issued a challenge to "see what comes to mind when you think Canada." Well, lots of things...mosquitoes...French Canadians in short shorts (MY EYES! ACK!)....lots of things. But mostly I think of hockey (even though their hockey teams pale in comparison to say...the San Jose Sharks. LOL!)

Here is my card!

I used one of the Gruffie's hockey images that I got on Wish-RAK on SCS. They are ADOREABLE!

Thanks for dropping by today and don't forget to enter my blog candy for a set of Koh-i-noor pencils and blending stumps!

Oh and also, here is a picture of my little princess. Her name is Dixie and she is a 1 year old West Highland White terrier. She gives me this look all the time of "I do NOT approve" whenever I'm doing something dumb. hehe

P.S. You forgot to say that the French Canadians would be chain-smoking in their short shorts! Ha!
