- 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!

Autumn Birthday for Card Come and Get It Challenges
Today’s card I created for the Come and Get It Challenges. This was a challenge to think about autumn when it is 36 Degrees Celsius on my deck. I have been hiding in my cool craft room all day because I do not like this extreme heat.
To create the autumn coloured background I played around with various dye inks and then stamped the paper with some fall leaf stamps I have my collection of stamps.
I punched out a maple leaf and stamped it with “Happy Birthday” several times and “Life is Good”. Both sentiment stamps are by A Muse Artstamps. To finish the card I added a yellow and brown ribbon.
Well I am heading back to my craft room where it is cool and hopefully I can finish off some of my projects.
