Happy greetings by Stampin Up and me

Good Monday Morning dear Stampers.

This morning we went with the kids to a huge Calgary Stampede Breakfast. This was so much fun. You would have loved it.

Started in 1912, The Calgary Stampede is one huge popular 10-day event held each summer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Stampede hosts seriously some world class rodeo, first nations exhibitions and festival events. It attracts over one million visitors per year. Also each morning there are all over the city many stores and organisations and churches that offer free breakfasts to anyone who comes.. You should see all those Calgarians walking around in their cowboy hats and boots... including me :)

I should have brought my camera, but I didn`t think there could be so many great moments to take pictures. Our kids had some delicious pancakes with yummy syrup, some scrambled eggs, hamburgers and orange juice.. Now I don`t whip something like that up on a regular morning.. So this was sure a treat.. The kids went on a pony ride, went to a pet farm, had the best snacks and Reuben was able to meet some real Canadian soldiers and even dress up as one.. They had some live music and some Native people dancing. Loved it, loved it.

Now off to my card. I combined my 2 new Stampin Up In-colors, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. Together with the So Saffron they made one yummy card. I didn`t have to spend much time on it. So that worked out well for this busy day. I used 3 of my Stampin Up punches and created some layers on the left. I used the Clean and simple Stamping Challenge number 148 of this week. I changed it up a bit.. and was so pleased with the end result. I love that new `Happy Greetings`set made by Stampin Up. It is so versatile and it was perfect for the job I had for it today.

Well, I guess it`s time to clean up some house :) Enjoy the rest of your day or evening.Inky hugs, Pauline
