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!

Happy Father's Day

I made this Father's Day card for a friend.  I used earth tone colours of cream, brown and shades of blue.  The ship is a rubber stamp from my collection of unmounted rubber stamps and the anchor is a stamp by Just Rite Rubber stamps. 

The ship was embossed with a brown embossing powder.  I found the textured brown paper in my recycle bin and I also used several layers of papers in shades of brown, cream and blue.

Thank you for stopping by.  Remember Creativity is contagious, pass it on.
