About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

New Years 2012

This card was created for an upcoming swap I have with one of the Yahoo groups I belong to called The Inky Fun Stampers. One of this month’s swap challenges was to create a New Years card. The little guy spray painting the upcoming year on the wall is a free digi image by Sliekje’s Digi Stamps. I love the little blue jean outfit he is wearing.

After giving the image some colour I added stars in red and silver. I then punched the corners with a star corner punch that I have had for years and I believed never used. I then added some bling and a sentiment to complete the card.

The card is quite colourful and welcoming of the new year.

Have a creative day.
