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!

Blown in the Wind

I have an upcoming swap with the Inky Fun stampers with a southwestern theme. In my stash I had this beautiful stamp by Terry Medaris called "blown in the wind".  I picked this stamp up on a trip to Arizona and had the pleasure of meeting Terry.  

I used my Copic to colour the main image and my Panpastels to color the background.  To complete the card I drew a little design to frame the image.  

Thank you for stopping to take a look and have a creative day.
