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!

Embrace Life

Party Time Tuesday’s Challenge (#70) this week is Anything Goes. I choose to do a Stamping Silhouettes technique. I checked out Jennifer McGuire Ink web site for ideas on Stamping Silhouettes.

I embossed my Chapel Road rubber stamp called Queen’s Ann’s Lace with Pearluster Amethyst embossing powder then rubbed three colours of distressed inks into the background. To complete the card I added a ribbon, sentiment by JustRite Stamps and a butterfly. 

Thanks for stopping by.
I am also entering this card in the Come and Get it Challenges this week - flowers and butterflies and Shopping Our Stash - May Flowers.
