We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at Michelle S' blog. If you have come from 
Michelle H's blog, then you are in the right place! 

I chose to create a card based primarily on the the Hello Canada digital Cricut cartridge. 

Each province has a flower associated with it and the Ontario flower is the trillium. I love this flower and it grows in abundance in my area. The white trillium is by far the most common but red trilliums are also found, although they are far less common. I based my card on one I found on Pinterest made by Mary Fish. The background panels are embossed with the new Rose embossing folder. 

Products used are all Close To My Heart

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Mink Cardstock, Canary Cardstock, Willow Cardstock
Stamps: none
Inks: none
Accessories: Hello Canada Digital Cartridge, Flower Market Cartridge, Whisper Thick Twine, White Pearls, Rose Embossing Folder, Foam Tape, Corner Rounder
