Special Day!!

Most of the time Canadians don't like to wave the flag and all that stuff..Not that we are shy, but maybe from the British we learned not to blow our horn etc. But today was a very special day for my friends Claudia, Laslo, and Andrew Finna as I watched them become Canadian citizens. It was a special and emotional day. They have worked hard to become good citizens. So here's to you my friends Welcome and now let's party!!! SKOL

Well I had some good news on Tuesday. I bought the Summer 2009 issue of Stampers' Sampler "Take Ten" and found out that my card was published in their challenge. My scanner is not working so if you have the issue look on page 17 "Best Friend". This gives my creativity a little boost as I struggle with my artistic worth..I know that I should be ok with my work but..I am going to work forward with more challenges and contests. I am working on being more positive and happy with where I am.. Thanks for listening!!

Well, spring is still on and Vancouver has been hit with a blast of summer and i am loving it..lots of swimming in the complex pool, sitting outside and enjoying my breakfast, watching the roses bloom and the cats are loving sunning themselves in the grass. Today the temp is going to go to 34c/98F...finished my Mom's 85th birthday scapbook and it look great..Mom got stung by a yellow-jacket and the swelling travelling up her arm, but she is feeling better today with ice and benedrile..must go and vacuum before the day gets too hot..byby..
