Square Hexagon Card!

Sharing another hexagon card. I hope you are not tired of hexagon cards! This background stamp is from Stampotique. Making background with this stamp is a lot of fun! The sentiment is also from Stampotique.
I love this saying!
touch your heart
I am linking this card to Moxie Fab World's Hooked on Hexagon Challenge! 

Over the weekend, my family and I went to Our National capitol Ottawa for a brief visit with my in-laws. We went to our usual lunch at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. As we were chatting over lunch amongst ourselves, the restaurant owner came to our table and alerted us that there is a VIP guest in the house....I looked at the corner table and noticed there were a few security guard type of people sitting across a few tables in the restaurant. Well, guess who came to lunch?
Our Prime Minister Stephen Harper!
 My in-laws with the Prime Minister. They look cute in their matching yellow jackets! 
 (left to right): brother-in-law Calvin, Prime Minister, Virginia and my son David. I wish I had put some makeup on! Who knew that I would meet the Prime Minister?
