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!

Colour Challenge - Brown, Blue and Cream

It is a colour challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges and the colours are brown, blue and cream.  Fred, She Said Designs is the sponsor and they have a prize for one lucky winner. Hop over to the Come and Get It blog to find out the details and be inspired by the creations of the rest of the design team.

My 4 by 4 card is made using one of Fred's designs called Daises with Bracket Border.  What a package of digital images you get when you order this set.  Two different flowers and leaves in various sizes and 4 fancy brackets to use with them. Lots of possibilities with this grouping. I could not find a brad for the center of my card in the right colour so I dipped a white brad in embossing ink, then into a dark blue embossing powder and heated it, repeated the process until I got the coverage I wanted.

I coloured my flowers and my bracket in the colour challenge colours then layered my pieces on to cream card stock and brown and cream pattern paper.  Very simple little card that I am going to use on a gift.

Come join us at Come and Get It Challenges. Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
