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!

The Twin's First Christmas

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week is have a 2 punch or dies challenge and Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor of this challenge so everyone who enters their card has a chance of winning 7 digi stamps from Bugaboo. 

This is my card.

I chose to use Bugaboo's Digital Image called Christmas Horse.  I made two similar cards because the cards are for my niece's twin's first Christmas.  I used two die cuts for the card and coloured the Christmas horses similarly but different.  I added their names to the card to personalize them and celebrate their first Christmas. 

I hope you will join us this week at Holly Jolly.  You cannot start your Christmas cards too early.  If you need some inspiration pop over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge site and see the inspiring cards by the other  members of the design team.  


I am entering my card in the following challenges
