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!

Lace or Ribbon Challenge at Holly Jolly

Happy New Years. This is our first challenge of 2014 at Holly Jolly and the challenge is to make a Christmas card using ribbon or lace.    

Bugaboo is the sponsor this week and they as always have a great prize for one lucky winner.  

I used Ave Ornament as my image for this challenge.  My lace was white in colour so I dyed it with distress tea stain ink.  The pattern papers, sentiment and tag were all from my stash. 

Join us this week at Holly Jolly. Pop over to the challenge blog and see the creations of the rest of the design team members.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
