CAS Challenge CAS227 is Summer! and nothing screams summer more to me than July 1 Canada Day when we get together as a family to celebrate with a barbecue! Rain or shine, we've been meeting at my brother's place for almost 30 years wearing our red and white to honour our Canadian flag! We're not a large family and sometimes a couple of the grandkids are off doing their own things, but it's a tradition I love. We'll take the family photo and drink a toast to my mum who is no longer with us, and share memories, while creating new ones!
I stamped my trio of maple leaves in red and then stamped the sentiment - which is from the Canadian National Anthem - and cut it out with Spellbinders and created a little tag with some gingham ribbon. I'll give the card to the bbq hosts tomorrow on July 1.
Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians!!

Happy Canada day to you! Lovely, meaninful creation. I love the Canadian anthem and I always sing it at the hockey games here in Colorado:)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
