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!

Glittered Chickadee

This week at Come and Get it Challenges it is the hostess choice challenge and the challenge is to use three of the following: purple, green, black, glitter, staples, gems, ribbon, circle and scallops. It is pretty easy to make a card using three of the choices.

I made this cute little chickadee from a die cutting stencil from Dee’s Distinctively.

My card has green, black, glitter, gems and circles on it. I think this card would make a nice tag for a gift or a thank you note.

Now it is your turn to make a card and enter it on our Come and Get it Challenge Blog. While you are there check out on the creations of the other design team members.
