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!

D = Dancing (Enchanted Dancing)

This card was created for an upcoming swap I have joined where the theme of the card is something that starts with "D". I immediately thought “D” is for dancing and this cute dancer I saw on the Paper Shelter’s web site called “Enchanted Dancing”.

I coloured the image with my Copics and radiant pearls. I added few more mushrooms (Stampin Up), a paper ribbon, bling, and a butterfly. I had an unmounted rubber stamp of ballet shoe that I wanted to put on the card but they were too large for the design so I got out my shrink plastic and made myself a few pairs of little ballet shoes. It had been a long time since I have used shrink plastic and I had for gotten how much fun it was to play with.

Use your imagination and create something.
