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!

Hoping All Of Your Birthday Fishes Come True

Well today is my last day of being card captain at Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. It has been a good week. Today's creation was inspired by a card I seen on the Jennifer McGuire, Ink web site. Jennifer had layered a couple of types of papers to create a back ground. I decide to use a fine patterned blue paper cut into strips with my wave blade on my paper cutter along with layers of blue magic mesh to create the water effect. I added a Cloisonné Fish of Mike's, bling for the bubbles and sentiment to complete the birthday card. This card is ready to send off to a fishing enthusiast for his birthday.

My quote for today is by Earl Nightingale: "Everything begins with an idea." Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
