Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Beach Party You're Invited

This card was created for one of my yahoo groups, Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps.


The theme of the challenge was to create a beach party card using at least one of Mike's stamps. I stamped the Cloisonné fish on scraps of colourful alcohol ink splattered paper from my stash, mounted the fish on a background embossed with the swirl embossing folder and coloured with chalks. I added the invitation signs and brads to finish off the cards. Pretty simple card but colourful.

Happy creating everyone.
