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!

Heart Breaker , Dream Maker, Love Taker

Happy New Years.  Welcome to Come and Get it Challenges first challenge of 2014.  This week the theme of the challenge is "Something New".  Our sponsor this week is the Stamping Boutique and they have a wonderful prize for one lucky winner. 


My something new is this lovely digital stamp by our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique called Princess Jennifer Latte - Heart Breaker.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and took the words from the song Heartbreaker by Pat Benatar. I thought the song went well with the image. The card was coloured with a glitter pen and Copic Markers. The extra hearts that I added  were cut with the  Nestabilities heart die set and the stenciled.

Hope you will join us this week. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Remember my  favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
