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!

Let's Go Fishing

I have the honour of being the guest designer at My Sheri's Crafts this week.  "Time to go Fishin" is the theme of  this challenge and the challenge is to you a fish on your card.   This is a great theme for a little boy or a big boy card.  

Since I am still in Arizona on holidays I was limited to what I had on hand for this card. The cute little boy image is by Milk Coffee Digital Stamps which I coloured with my Copic Markers. I used a combination of papers in coordinating colours and patterns for the background layering.  The sentiment I added was from PollyCraft Digital Stamps and the fish was from part of a stamp I had in my collection.  I added some bling, black cord and some shine with Diamond Glaze on the boots to complete the card. 

Please join Sheri and her design team in the fun challenge. Thank you for stopping by and hope everyone has a creative week.
