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!

Buttons and Bows - Shopping Our Stash Challenge #44

I made this card for Shopping Our Stash's "buttons and bows" challenge this week. I found this pretty lamb on Meljens Designs’ site that I used for the card.  I hauled out my papers and looked for a combination that I liked for the card.  I layered the papers, added part of a doily and a sentiment and then of course I added my buttons and bows.  I like the yellow, gray and blue colour comination.  I think the card will make a cute Easter card for one of my niece’s little girls.
Do something creative today for yourself.    Now back to my stamp room to clean up the mess.
