For this hop I asked to use the brand new Canada Honey image.  Since I am the only Canadian on the SSD DT I really wanted to complete my country's card =)  When I recieived the image I was blown away with how beautiful she is and I could not wait to get my Copics out. Lindsay has really outdone herself this month, wait and see.....
