Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!

Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Let's get Patriotic

-Create a Patriotic Card/Project.Must include one of the following Bling, Brads, Buttons

Hi My Friendly Bloggers!
I had so much fun making this card to celebrate Canada Day, that is on July 1st.
Seeing that I am the only Canadian on my team,I obviously had to be different.
I tried to include as much Canadian culture as possible,even a Tim Horton's coffee.Because every Canuck knows Tim's is the best coffee.And who does'nt love Beavers and Hockey EH!
I used Create a Critter for my Beaver and Peachy Keen "Critter faces" TOO CUTE!!
I created my own flag and RCMP hat and added a button on my hat and a brad on my flag.
Cardstock from My Big Idea to incorporate our beautiful winters.
And for the inside I just printed a Canada Day image and added some stickers from Dollarama (another Canadian thing)



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog :)
I hope you join us at Whimsical Wednesday for a great challenge and to see all the Talented Ladies.
Hope you have a great Canada Day and a great 4th of July!!

This card is so so adorable. I love the beaver. That face is too cute! What an amazing job creating your flag and little hat. You are so talented. We have dollar stores here in the states but have never seen cool stickers like that here. Love that you used wintery paper to add to all the Canadian culture. You sure did get patriotic here:) Love it all. I need to catch up on so much...so will you call you tomorrow night so you can get word and the Digis;) Great job with the challenge.

Wowzers Cindy! This is spectacular. Those special, hand-crafted details makes this card absolutely fabulous! I am a big fan of Tim Horton's Coffee so when I saw that cup I just about fell out of my chair. The inside is as great as the outside! Truly outdid yourself.
Happy Canada Day my friend! I live but a few minutes from the border & some of my family lives there so we visit often. I feel like a Canadian by proxy.
Marvelous!!!
Hugs,
Sonia
