While this wasn't meant to be a Canada card I figure the Celebrate sentiment fits perfectly for the day.. I don't like buying stamp sets that I will only use once a year (except for Christmas) so I don't have any patriotic stamps. I like those sets that cover a bunch of a holidays in one set. Maybe next year I might break down and buy a small set as I am very envious of the card Maureen made with her new set.
Cinema Saturday Challenge. It has been a long time since playing along with those lovely ladies and I miss them. Life is just so crazy right now so if inspiration doesn't just pop out at me I tend to pass on the Challenge. Well this week I was inspired more by the colours and using pennants than the actual movie, which I must admit that I haven't seen. Sankari and Lynne provided some wonderful inspiration in their project as well so I just went along with the homemade feel and bright colours.
The pennants come from my favourite Practicing Creativity set: Look Up! Courtney's revealing a new set this week and she usually has a give away so you might want to pop over there. Anyhow, the pennants were stamped on a neutral cotton fabric and then cut. Hand stitching is done with linen thread around the top red panel and buttons and Kraft paper were used to create even more of a home made feel.
Today I'm Grateful for.....having such a peaceful and safe country to live in. What are you thankful for?
