About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

My First Post

Well here it goes. This is my first post and the beginning of my new adventure in blogging.  This card was created for an April Yahoo swap with the theme of the swap being embossing folders.  The spring coloured card was created with a Cuttlebug embossing folders and Spellbinder die cuts. I coloured the embossed background and butterfly by sponging distressed inks in colours of chipped sapphire, tumble glass, and peeled paint. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.
