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!

Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown

It is an Anything Goes challenge at Fitztown this week and this secret gift card holder on a card base is my project for this challenge.  I used three Fitztown images to make my card. 

The card has a tag tucked in the front to write a message on. 

Here is the inside of the card. 

Here is the secret pocket you tuck your gift card into. 

I found this pattern for this card on Pinterest which directed me to Annes Paper Creations.  She has done great job of written directions and a video to giving step by step directions. 

The products I used to make my gift card are:

Fitztown's image Old Car
Sentiments by Stampin Up and  Rubber Stampede
Designer Paper from my stash
Colouring - Copic Markers
Washi Tape
Magic Mesh

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Don't forget to pop over to Fitztown's Challenge Blog to see the cards that the rest of the design team have created to inspire you.  The challenge rules have been made more flexible so you can play along and WIN with an outside image. Winners using a non-Fitztown image will win ONE image. If you do use a Fitztown image, you can link up twice doubling your chances of winning THREE images! Link up with your post and then link up a second time with your blog. Hope to see you playing along!
