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 Blue Blue Christmas

Hi everyone, I am on holidays (10 weeks in Arizona) getting away from that cold weather.  We bought a bigger trailer this year so I could bring more craft supplies with me. 

It was my turn to pick the challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges and my challenge to you is to create a Christmas card with the colours of purple, blue and silver.  The colour scheme I thought worked good for this card I made using the Elvis stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The card was a very simple to make.  I used a die cut for the star,  an embossing folder for the silver strip and a sentiment.  Hope you will join in the challenge.  Just create your card and enter it here.
