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!

Dream of Flowers - Day 5

This is my last day this week as card captain at yahoo group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps and I have made a card using Mike’s small tulip rubber stamp and a leaf stamp from Stampin Up. The back ground of this stamp was made with Gina K’s upholstery background technique. You can view the video on this technique at:


I water coloured the tulip with my distress inks and then added a sentiment, ribbon and some bling for interest.

Thank you for joining me this week. I have really enjoyed coming up with my ideas. Come join us at Yahoo group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps.
