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!

A Christmas Tree

Cindy at Come and Get it Challenges chose the challenge this week and she picked a colour challenge of white or vanilla plus another colour of your choice only. 

I used a vellum in a blue/green for the background of the card.  I embossed the vellum with a snowflake pattern. I love the look of embossed vellum.  I had embossed the Christmas tree on white card stock and rubbed the tree with a blue/green rub-on paste to highlight it and also rubbed the white strip I put behind the tree with the same colour.  I added a sentiment and my card is complete.

Hope you will join us at Come and Get It this week and thank you for stopping by.  Have a creative day.
