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!

It is a Color Challenge - Orange, Brown Yellow and Red

This week's challenge at Come and Get it Challenges is a color challenge. The four colors are yellow, red, brown and orange. I just love the color combo.

This challenge is sponsored by one of my favorites digital stamp company, Bugaboo Stamps and with Bugaboo as our sponsor this week have a prize for one lucky participant that will be chosen by Random Org. If you have never taken a look at their  wonderful images I suggest that you you cruise over to their site and take a look, there is something for everybody and if you prefer rubber Bugaboo has that too.

The card I created this week is made with a digi stamp from Bugaboo called Bugaboo Cowboy - Fence 2. I colored the little cowboy with my Copic Markers, added layers of papers that I embossed with an embossing folder that gave a wood like appearance. To add some depth to the embossed papers I added distress ink. I then added some cord to resemble a lasso, some brads to resemble nails and a "howdy" stamp by Stampin Up to complete the card. I think he turned out kind of cute.
This was a fun challenge and I hope you will join us at Come and Get it Challenges this week. Create your card and enter it here.
