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!

Frosty the Snowman

Snowflakes or Snowman is the challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.  Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week and that means a prize for a lucky someone at the end of the challenge.

I decided to make a wall hanging this week instead of a card.  I was inspired by a gift from a friend and I thought the idea would make a neat Christmas wall hanging. 

I made the wall  hanging on a piece of kraft paper and used a snowman digitial image from my collection.  I punched the snowflakes out of craft paper and added some white ink and clear embossing powder. I also added ribbon, wire, eyelets, glitter and buttons to complete the project.  

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my project.  Come join us at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.  Need some inspiration visit the blogs of the other Christmas Elves. 

Have a great day
