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!

Cloisonné Bird

Today is day 2 of my turn as Card Captain at one of my favourite Yahoo groups "Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps"


This card was created using Michael Strong’s Cloisonné Bird rubber stamp. I love the shape of the bird and created this flower to go along with the bird and of course I had to add some bling, actually I added a lot of bling.

The flower was made by putting a thin strip of pattern paper through my corrugator crimper and then twisting it into a circle and taping in place with extra sticky tape. I used a coat button from my stash for the centre of the flower.

Quote of the day:

“We express our being by creating. Creativity is a necessary sequel to being.” Rollo May

Have a creative day. Thanks for stopping by.
