July Cross Canada Blog Hop

Howdy!! and welcome to Calgary!! I know Stampede is over for another year but i couldn't resist sharing just one more YAH-HOO!!!

Welcome to the Cross Canada July Blog Hop featuring the current Operation Smile Stamp Set, "Happy Everything". When you purchase this stamp set, Close To My Heart will donate $3 to Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that performs life-altering surgeries what will give children confidence for a lifetime. They have performed over 220,000 surgeries since being founded in 1982.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you came from Lucy's Blog then you are in the right place!

This a great set for a great cause, and here is the top fold card that I created.

I used sunset and Juniper Card stock along with an embossed Coke can (yes I said Coke can).

here is the inside.

This a great set for a great cause!

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way


  1. Would love to see how you did the embossed coke can. I'd be scared I'd cut myself. Lovely is a great idea, and use of materials.

  2. Love this! I've embossed drink cans before - the edges can be sharp. I've applied alcohol inks to them to colour as well....wonder how our markers would do on this?!

  3. A coke can! You are going to have to show us how you did that! Fabulous card.
