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!

Happy Bird Day

I tried to resist but I just had to have the set of Tim Holtz' Bird Crazy rubber stamps and dies. They are  adorable.  I love the cute little birds and all the little add ons you can get to go with them.  I decided to use one of the birds for a birthday card for my sister.

The card was coloured with Copics and distressed inks.  I added the background by pooling several colours of Distress ink on a craft mate and dipped my stencil on the ink and pressed the stencil on to the water colour paper.  The balloons, party hat and present are part of the accessory set of the bird crazy stamps. 

To complete my card I added a couple of sentiments and a balloons strings. 
Thank you for stopping.
