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!

Design Team Case Study

 Meighan chose a great idea for a challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges.  The challenge is to choose one of the cards from the Come and Get It Challenge blog's design team members and use the card as a case study (copy and share everything).  This means that you CASE their card to create your own.  Normally you would copy the layout, maybe the theme, colours but just as long as you can see your card was inspired by the CASE card.  Does this not sound interesting?

This is my card that I made for the case study. 

This is the card that I cased, it was created by Nat one of our guest design team members back in January for a challenge called "Tie a ribbon around it" .

I was amazed at the card she created with all the layers and special details. Do you think I got the case right? 

We also have a sponsor this week, Bugaboo Digi Stamps and there is a great prize. I used one of Bugaboo's images for my card, she is called Summertime Peeker - Flower Pot.   I think she is so cute. 

Hope you will join us this week .  Hop over to the Come and Get It blog and see the cards that the other design team members created to inspire you.  Thank you for stopping to take a look. 


I would  like to enter this card in the following challenges:
