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!

Inspiration card for Get Inky Challenges

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mom's out there.  We are having a Mother's Day/Flower Challenge this week at Get Ink

This is my inspiration for the challenge.  

I chose to make a flower pot full of flowers for my card this week.  I made quite a few flowers and then piled them on after I had added my die cuts and leaves.   I made lots of flowers out of my scrape paper in my stash and edged them with Distress Inks.  I was not worried about how many I made because it is nice to have a supply of flowers already made up when you are working on different paper projects. 

I added a sentiment from the Cupcake Photo Polymer stamp set to complete my card.  This set of stamps is just full of sentiments to be used with or without the cupcake stamp. I think it is such a great value.  Check out them out at Blue Moon Creations Crafting Station.   

Supplies that I used to make my flower pot are

Spellbinders Flower Pot Die
Maryinne Designs die
Doily die cut with a Cricut
Pearls from my stash
Paper and Ribbon from my stash 
Leaves die cut by Sizzex
Martha Stewart  Flower Punch
Sentiment by Get Inky
