CTMH July SOTM Blog Hop

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!  How exciting to be celebrating this fun day with a blog hop featuring a stamp set that's perfect for today (okay, tomorrow since this is up on Thursday night instead of Friday morning).  If you came here from Vickie's blog, you're on the right track.  Remember that this is a cyclical hop, so keep hopping until you get back here and you'll have seen everything!

Here is the Canadian version of this stamp set.  Yes, you read that correctly.  There is a Canadian version and an American version.  How neat is that?   

I'm expecting lots of patriotic projects this time around.  Since there are lots of American consultants on this hop I thought I'd better put the Canadian side of things on display.  Here is my project:

I have had this event calendar for quite some time and haven't done a thing with it, until now.  I used only the SOTM along with Cranberry, Black, Gypsy, Lagoon, Grey Flannel, and Pacifica inks.  All the fireworks and stars are stamped second generation so they don't interfere with anything I need to write on the calendar.  I also kept it pretty plain, with no embellishments so the calendar will hang nice and flat when I finally finish it and put it up on the wall.  (Who knows how long that will take!)

If you'd like to see another project I've made with this stamp set, just scroll down to the next post.

Now it's time to keep hopping over to Shirley's blog and check out what's she's created.

Happy Creating!
