A Canadian Stamp Company :)

I am participating in the Canadian Blog Hop for National Card Making Day, on October 1st.
The rules...You must be Canadian
You must have an active blog
You have to use a Canadian Product.

I thought the last criteria might be hard to find.
Then I found out that Kraftin Kimmie stamps were a Canadian company...but were they designed in Canada?
So I contacted the company and Kim Reid emailed me back with the answer I was ecstatic to hear.
YES they are designed and manufactured in Canada.
So because of that (as well as how cute they are) they are now my favourite stamp company.
So I just happened to drive by my local scrap booking store (Dat's) and picked up a few more of these cuties. Not only are the images so cute, I love that they have the sentiments with them.

Can't wait to ink these babies up :)
Onto My Day:
Went for a walk with Lynne :)
Went out for lunch with Ashley and Heather. I find it funny that Ashley invites us for lunch, but then I end up with the bill, lol. 
Went to Chapters.....still no Magnolia Ink magazine :(
Went to Future Shop. My battery is completely dead in my laptop. Plus I tripped over the cord when we were at camp and not only bent the plug that goes into the laptop, but also the inside of the laptop where the plug in goes.   It is just a matter of time before it doesn't work anymore, so I am doing some research into a new one.
Ran to my Scrap booking store.
Went and rented a few mindless reality shows (Real Housewives of blah, blah, blah). I need to totally clean up my scrap booking room and thought I would put these on until I got sick of their voices, lol. Ya I know why did I get them, lol.
Lastly I went to Lynne's house to make a card. Lynne is my friend and Stampin' Up demonstrator. Remember I did a class for her on the Christmas Treat boxes last year?

Hope everyone had a creative Friday :)

  1. Cool blog hop! Did you also know that Crafty Secrets is created (not uses if manufactured) in Canada?
