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!

This card was an exercise in pattern paper with a combination of a sketch for an upcoming card swap. I am still travelling in our RV and my paper supply is getting down.  I searched my scrap pile for some interesting combination of papers for this card. I even found a plaid button to go with the collection of papers. The stamp I chose is by Stampendous and with my Copic Markers I added some stripes to the gentlemen's suit to tie in the colours of my pattern paper. 

Thank you for stopping by today and have a creative day.
