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!

JJ and the Christmas Ornament

It is my turn to chose the theme of this weeks challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges and I have chosen a Bingo.
To play along with us you must chose a line across, diagonally or down and make your card using the three items that you find in that row. Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week and that means a prize for a lucky someone at the end of the challenge.

Here is my card

I chose to use the diagonal row containing the words: glitter, free and red. How hard can that be to use glitter and the color red on your Christmas card?

I thought of JJ Christmas Ornament from Bugaboo would look great in a red and gold dress swinging on the Christmas ornament. I just purchased two new Memory Box die cuts that I used to make up the card card. Once the card was assembled I decided not to bling it up since there were lots of swirls and flourishes in the die cut and glitter on her dress.

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week. It is less than three weeks to Christmas and time to finish up those Christmas cards. Have a creative day.
