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!

Embossed Plus a Ribbon

Meighan had a great idea for a challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges, embossed plus a ribbon.  

I embossed my background then rubbed gold and green Inka Gold over the embossed area. After the Inka Gold dried I buffed it with a soft cloth. I lovee it's shiny metallic colour.

The dove and holly digi is by Just Inklined Digital Stamps which I coloured with a few glitter pens. Next I ran a pattern ribbon horizontal on the card and added a little bling.  Thank you for stopping by today and remember to do something creative for yourself. 

Hope you will join us at Holly Jolly this week. Pop over the Holly Jolly blog and see the cards of the rest of the design team has made to inspire you.
