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!

It's a Beautiful Day

Fred, She Said Designs has a wonderful new set of digital stamps that have been just released.  The set is called, Happy Flowers & Sentiments and includes many different sizes of flowers for layering they come coloured (oh so many happy colours) and also a package of images not coloured for you to get out your colouring pens and inks to colour them they way you would like them.  The set also included a bunch of digital sentiment stamps.  What a bargin this set is.

I have been traveling so I chose to use the set that I had to add my own colours to, I did not have my colour printer with me on vacation. My flowers and laves were coloured with several colours of distress inks and Martha Stewart coloured glitter. I used the same distress inks to colour the background of the card and a flourish die cut to tie my flowers together.  The sentiment is an old stamp in my collection by Rubber Stampede.  

Don't these flowers make such a happy card. Stop over to Fred's store and check out the set.   Oh the possibilities.
