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 Bingo Time at Holly Jolly

Julie chose a Bingo for this week's challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.   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.

I chose to use a diagonal row; pearls or gems, die cuts or punches and designer paper. 

I used this traditional image of Christmas Bells and Holly from Just Inklined Digital Stamps for my project.  I decided to use a round easel pattern for the card shape and coloured my image with Copic Markers and glitter pens.  I added some coordinating striped designer paper, a two coloured Christmas ribbon, red pearls and three green jingle bells to complete the card.  

Come join us this week at Holly Jolly.  It is never to early to start your Christmas cards.  Need some inspiration, pop over to the Holly Jolly Challenge blog and see what the other Holly Jolly Christmas elves have made this week.


I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
