Good Morning!  Happy Canada Day and welcome to our blog hop.

If you arrived from Avril's blog then you are at the right place.  If you just happened to come by today, we are having an amazing blog hop with some of my fave Canadian bloggers to celebrate Canada's birthday.  And there are prizes to be had by following the directions.  So, head over to Tara's blog to start at the beginning. 

I am the last stop on our hop and if you have been collecting the SECRET word that each blog has along the way, after reading this, leave the answer to the question in a comment to be entered to win.  How fun is that.  Our sponsors are offering wonderful prizes:

*Bugaboo Stamps - $30 Gift Card
*Redonkulous Designs ~ choice of one digi image
*Scrappy Mom's Stamps~ Canada set

Okay, first I want to show you some yummy treats I made to enjoy ~ after all, what is a birthday without cake?

And I have a birthday card to go with them.  It is a very clean and simple card but I like the way it turned out:

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend if you live in Canada.  For my US and International friends,  I hope you are having a great weekend anyhow. 

You have until the end of Wednesday, July 4th to visit all of our blogs, collect your secret words and leave a comment here with the answer for your chance to win.  I will pick and post the winners on Thursday, July 5th.
