Toronto Maple Leaf Birthday Card

HOLY MOLY, 2 posts in 1 day!  Be sure to scroll down to my previous post after reading this one :)

As you know from my profile, you can see that I am from Ontario, Canada - and Im a HUGE Toronto Maple Leaf Fan.  I made this birthday card for my sister-in-law Cathie as she is a TML fan too and this stamp called Melanie, looks a lot like my sister-in-law.

What I LOVE about this stamp from Kraftin`Kimmie is that you can also use this stamp to make a Team Canada jersey too.  Being from Canada it is just a give in that you have to LOVE hockey, and I do! :)  I think it is pretty cool too that the CN Tower is in the background.

And here is Cathie`s Birthday Card....
