It's the Canada Day Long Weekend here in Canada. And surprisingly enough, the weather in Calgary has been awesome!!! So often our long weekends are marked with cool wet weather. Instead we have had nothing but sunshine and warm temperatures!
We spent several hours out at an outdoor event near downtown yesterday, enjoying the sun and some great bands. We all took books and did a little reading, did some people watching and wandered around looking at whatever there was to see. It was a great day.
This morning I have spent packing as the kids and I are off to see Mom in Regina. We're leaving the husband and the dog behind. Sniff sniff. We are looking forward to some time with Mom. I have copied all of the cards I have made so far onto a memory stick and promise to update at least a few times while I'm away.
Todays card is a complete and total copy of a card I saw on Trisha's blog. There is nothing in this card that is my own creativity other than the fact I had to find another stamp set to use. Sad, I know... but I just so totally loved this card! My card is OK, but Trisha's is perfect!!!
