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!

Inspired by a Christmas Carol

Inspired by a Christmas carol is the theme of this weeks challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges and the challenge is sponsored by one of my favorites digital stamp company, Bugaboo Stamps . The hostess, Cindy will pick the winner of the challenge, and the winner of the challenge will also win the prize of  7 free Bugaboo digi stamps.  If you have never taken a look at their wonderful images I suggest that you cruise over to their site and take a look, there is something for everybody and if you prefer rubber Bugaboo has that to. 

Here is my song inspired card.

“Joy to the World” is one of my favorite Christmas carols and I found this Joy digi stamp that I used to create my card at Bugaboo.  I colored this image with my glitter pen and then created a Christmas ornament style card that was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.  To create my card I used several die cuts, ribbon, an embossing folder and a string of pearls. It was an interesting card to make and I thought it suited the Bugaboo image. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us at Holly Jolly this week.
