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!

Hot Summer Colours

Craft Spots by Kimberly’s challenge this week is Hot Summer Colours (#61) and this card I made reminds me of a hot summer day. I used the upholstery technique that I saw on Gina K Designs web site a couple of weeks ago for the background and coloured the flower and the background with distress inks.

The flower stamp is by Hero Arts and the sentiment is by A Muse Artstamps. A ribbon and some pearls completed the card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a Fan-tastic day!
