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!

It's a Birthday Party

At one of my favourite card Yahoo card groups, the Rubber Inkers are having a swap of cascade cards.  I thought it would be fun to do a birthday cascade card. This is the front of my card with Desmond Donkey by Paper Pretties.

Here is one side view

 And here is the other side with Cotton Candee by Paper Pretties.

I had fun creating the card. I loved using the two digital images by Paper Pretties together.  I also used many other products on the card including: paper from the recycle bin, rubbers stamps, Copic markers, Distress inks, paper by My Mind's Eye, die cuts and glitter. 

Well my card is ready for mailing and my craft room is a disaster. Time to do some clean up. Thank you for stopping to take a look.
