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!

Buttons, Buttons and More Buttons

My turn this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges to chose the challenge theme and I chose  a button theme.  Create your Christmas card or our Christmas project and use one or more buttons.  

I used a variety of buttons and green crystal drops to decorate my die cut Christmas tree. The tree was lined with a Krylon gold leafing pen. Layers or glittered paper and a sentiment complected the card.  

Come and join us at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week.  Just create your card and enter it here.  

Thanks for stopping by.
