Simcoe Day

Today's a holiday here in parts of Canada. It's called Simcoe Day in Toronto - it has other names in other provinces, and even in Ontario, outside of Toronto it is not known as Simcoe Day, but different names in different cities. It's not celebrated at all in Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador or Yukon - how weird is that?!

But it's a long weekend here, so we've had a busy few days with not much card making happening and nothing to show you today.

I do have some exciting news: I've been asked to be the Guest Designer for Uniko Studio's August release! And it's a good one!

There are sneak peaks on the Uniko blog today and tomorrow, and then the DT and I will be showcasing all the new products from Wednesday to Sunday, when they'll be available for sale!

Don't forget to pop over to Muse at 9:00 this morning for our new challenge - I promise you'll be inspired to make something amazing!

Simcoe day?! I had no idea. In Manitoba, it doesn't even have a name. The calendar just says civic holiday, and it's commonly referred to as August Long.

Congrats on the DT!

Congrats on the guest designer for their release.

In Ottawa, it's called Colonel By Day after the builder of the Rideau Canal. ;-)

LOL - we were trying to explain "BC Day" to our kids last week - apparently it is to celebrate BC pioneers, but we always just thought of it as the long weekend in the middle of summer.
