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!

Love is in the Air

I created this card for a challenge by the Yahoo Group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. The theme of the challenge is Love is in the Air. I wanted to create a metallic look to the card so I rubbed many layers of different colours of metallic Luster Rub-Ons over the embossed background. I then edged the card with copper embossing powder to complete the metal look, added the birds, and a metal embellishment with a ribbon to complete the card.
