Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Summer time!

Hey there stampers,

Know what today is?  It's time for another blog hop with my blogging friends!  On the first of every month, we do a hop through our blogs and share some wonderful projects with you.  Simply work your way through the list of bloggers at the end of everyone's post or click on the picture labeled 'continue on Blog Hop' also near the end of everyone's post.  I am looking forward to seeing the projects everyone made! 

This month's theme is Summer time.  For me, being July 1st and all, the perfect summer time theme is to celebrate is Canada's birthday!  So, if you are Canadian, happy Canada Day!  If you are hopping over from another country, please allow me to indulge in a little patriotic birthday celebration.....Canada is 149 today! :)

To celebrate, I made a happy Canada day card. For those of you not celebrating Canada's birthday, the techniques I used can be added to any card or scrapbook page.  Here is my card...

Of course, I used our traditional Canadian colours of Real Red and Whisper White and added some Crumb Cake and Black wording to emphasize them.
So, I started with a Crumb Cake card base and then added a layer of Real Red, then Whisper White embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing folder - I just LOVE this folder!  I added some Crumb Cake splatter using the Gorgeous Grunge Stampset for a bit of a graffiti look.   
I used the Leaflets Framelits to make my red maple leaf, the word 'happy' is from the Hello You Thinlits and the word day is stamped right onto the embossed cardstock.  It is the second half of 'birthday' that I coloured using the stampin' write marker instead of stamping it onto the inkpad.

This was a really fun card to make.  Thanks for stopping by.  
Now hop on over to Rick's blog to see what he has created for us!

Happy Stampin'
