World Cardmaking day Canadian Blog Hop

Welcome if you arrived from Chelle’s Blog you are now at the right place.
I certainly never thought I would blog let alone sign up for a blog hop, but it sounded like a lot of fun. What a time I had deciding which stamp I would use and the one I chose is from the Artful Stamper in London Ontario.,The African Queen was purchased at the Stamp Shack a long while ago and it has never seen ink until now.

I embossed it in black on Whisper White  then coloured with tombow markers. The card stock is More Mustard and black the fibres are from my yarn stash. The Happy Birthday is embossed in gold. This might just be a perfect card for my Grandson’s Birthday in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for stopping by, your next stop on the Canadian Blog Hop is Janet’s blog, I hope you enjoy looking at all the great cards and pages done featuring Canadian products.
