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!

Thank you to a Friend

I made this card tonight to say "thank you" to a friend for all of his hard work for a volunteer group I belong to. The pattern papers I used for the card are from the Tim Holtz collection  and the rubber stamps I used are all from my unmounted collection of stamps.  I added several layers of pattern and plain paper along with sme string and a button to give the card some interest.

I hope he enjoys the card.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
