Canada Day Blog Hop! Happy Birthday

I was asked again to participate in a Canada Wide Blog Hop!  Whoo Hoo!!!

Heather was able to line up some fabulous sponsors four our Hop Today: 
*Your Next Stamp ~ Jenny from Canada rubber stamp

We have some great Canadian sponsors lined up for prizes and winning is going to be so much fun! All you need to do is hop along with us leave all that participants some lovely comments and pick up one "clue word" from each blog along the way. Once you have all the words then you will have a special question to answer. Leave your answer in the comments on Heather's blog and ta da you are entered to win one of our great prizes! Best of all you will have a blast looking at all the fun Canadian crafts along the way! 

So since I am always in love with doing all things 3D I have come up with 2 Great 3D Projects for this Blog Hop!  I hope you enjoy them!  First up is this cute little 3D Centrepiece!  

I used the Summer Fresh line from Simple Stories and My Cricut Expression along with 2 different Cricut Craftroom Exclusives in Cricut Craftroom! 

Now what is Canada Day without a little fire works!

here is a close up of one of the pinwheels! 

And of course... I just had to add a vinyl cut title to the bucket!

 Now my 2nd Creation has just a little bit of humour attached to it! 

The hat was made with my Cricut Expression again! And I had come across this Little iron on saying  in Michaels which is where all the inspiration hit me for this hat when I saw it!  

of course when I saw the button and Ribbon right next to it I just new they would be perfect together!

I hope you enjoyed this little Blog Hop!  And I also hope you  enjoy your DAY? with your family and friends! (now just a hint... that Red word is your clue!)  Your next is 

Here is the order of the blog hop from the beginning!
