brighten my day

I don’t need much to brighten my day today. It’s Canada Day…wohoo! Happy Canada Day!


Today is one of my favorite holidays as I get to spend it with family and friends at one of my favorite places, the beach. We have family coming from Toronto and later, family flying in from Alberta so it’s sure to be busy and fun.

Another fun thing about today is it’s an Avocado Arts share day using the new July Hello Friend stamp set.

Some simple paper piecing makes this lamp shade super cute and pop up from the card.

Did you know you can order July’s kit in June and have it arrive for the 1st of the month? How cool is that? That way you get it early and enjoy it instead of waiting for weeks after the design team samples are out.

Supplies: Kraft cardstock by Bazzill, Cream Cardstock by Neenah, patterned paper by October Afternoon, Coffee Archival ink by Ranger, Lettuce Distress Ink by Ranger, Stickles by Ranger, circle punch, Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz

Looking for more ideas? Same drill as yesterday. I’m lovin these samples…

Have a bright and wonderful long weekend!
