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!

Home for the Holidays


My turn at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week to chose the theme of this challenge and I thought it would fun to do a Christmas card with an outdoor theme. 

The stamp I used for this challenge is an old stamp from my collection by Stamps Happen, Inc. called "There's no place like home for the holidays".    I added colour to my image with my Copic Markers, glitter pen and white gell pen.  For the snow effect I used Flower Soft then added some red pearls to finish off the card.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope you will join us at Holly Jolly this week.  Stop by our blog and see all of the beautiful cards by created by the design team to inspire you.
