*Blog Candy and An Update*

In honour of my birthday (July 25th), I'd like to offer up some blog candy!! Just leave a comment on this post and I'll draw for a lucky winner on July 28th.

We are now in Victoria BC... we had an OK time in Ucluelet.... woke up this morning to no water in our room thanks to a busted water main so there were no showers and no clean teeth this morning. The area is quite beautiful. We spent several hours at Combers Beach today wandering in the surf... beautiful day for it!

We got to Victoria around 7 tonight and walked from our downtown hotel to find dinner down near the Empress. Had a nice walk back to the hotel which included a Starbucks stop. On our last block we ran into people we know from Calgary... how strange is that???

Tomorrow we will wander around Victoria and I hope to hit Stamprs as my birthday present. A nice dinner and home to bed so that we can catch an early ferry on Thursday for the mainland.

I probably won't post again until we're home....

Hi Nancy! I've been following your blog for quite a while now (can't remember how I found it originally), and I must say -- you are SO talented! I just love the cards you make and you've inspired me to get back into cardmaking! I have never used any of the Stampin' Up products, but your cards definitely make me want to try them out. Oh and the Sakura sparkly gel pens too -- those look like so much fun! Have a happy, happy birthday!
