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!

Butterfly Topper

Hi - It is day 3 of being card captain at Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps and my project today is a topper for a present I was wrapping. The topper was inspired by a tile project I saw at the Art Glitter Institute in Cottonwood Arizona while on vacation this winter.  You can check out their web site at:
The base of the topper I glued a piece of card stock  to the top of the tin and then added fantasy fibers, Fru Fru and Mike’s Cloisonné butterfly stamped and cut out of fantasy film.  To complete the topper I added a glittered silk flower, some bling for colour and sparkle along with some mauve fibers that I tied around the tin.   
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
