Proud to be a Canadian

Hi everyone!

Yahoo! What an amazing Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver! I am proud to be a Canadian! I've included a picture my husband received from a friend of a C-Can Inukshuk near Richmond, BC! There's the spirit!

I'd love for you to tell me why you love being a Canadian! Share your stories!
On another note, how incredibly sad that the young Georgian luge olympian passed away today in a tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, team members and fellow country-men and fellow olympians.

Go Canada Go!

Made for each other card

Hi everyone,

I am sorry that I have not been able to post as often as I would like to. Recently, my Mom became sick with a cold. Usually that would not be a big deal, right? The difference is that my Mom has COPD - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (similar to Emphysema). She is on oxygen 24/7 and has had this disease for 7 years. It has been difficult to see her suffer and struggle for breath. Then a couple weeks ago, we learned that my close uncle (my Dad's twin brother who is a bachelor and lived with us since he was injured in a farm accident about 30 years ago and still lives with my parents) has lung and pancreatic cancer. Needless to say, we have been trying to spend as much time with them as possible.

Tonight I had a chance to create! Yahh! Creating is relaxing for me so tonight was a perfect time to make a card. Here it is! I used all Close to My Heart products including:

Veranda Creative Basics


Juniper Marker

Creme Brulee Marker

Chocolate Ink Pad

Creme Brulee Stitched Ribbon

Creme Brulee accessories, including brads

Love You Forever Stamp Set
