3 REASONS ME AND MY TWITTERS TWEET—CREATIVE TUESDAYS

3 REASONS ME AND MY TWITTERS TWEET—CREATIVE TUESDAYS

I race toward the finish line. I run out of time.

Still, it’s a happy day. At least I finish the line drawing for Creative TuesdaysTweet! That’s the first reason.

Lame, I know.

The second reason this mama, her two little twitters and I tweet is because it’s Canada’s 148th birthday. Tweet, tweet. Okay, so we’re a day early.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA - BLOG POST - JUNE 30, 2015

Now, please flitter over to Creative Tuesdays’ blog and whistle at the other creative twitters.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CANADA! (Tomorrow)
