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!

Birthday Garden

Today’s card creation is a card I made for the Come and Get It Sunday challenge. This cute digi image is by Whimsie Doodles and is called “Dottie’s Garden”. To add some interest to the card I coloured the image with Copic markers, added a button, glitter, fibre, pearls, bling and a paper punch ribbon. The sentiment stamp I added is called “Little Lady” by A Muse Art Stamps. The card to me had one area that seemed to need something else so I finished the card off with a punched butterfly by Martha Stewart.

I think I will give this cute colourful birthday card to my nephew’s daughter Kiah who is turning two this month. I think she will like the colours.

Happy creating everyone.
