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!

Shades of Gold and Red

My card was created with a digi image from our sponsor called Christmas Rose. What a bargain this set is, along with this Christmas Candle set you get 7 sentiments, 3 sheets of images and a image of a rose. You can check out this set here.

To create my card I coloured my image with my Copic Markers, added some glitter, ribbon, mesh, a selection of gold and red papers, and of course some bling.
