About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

Dashing Through the Snow

Cindy at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges had a great theme for this week's challenge, Dashing Through the Snow.  I had this great image from Paper Shelter of a bear ridden by a Christmas Elf pulling the sleigh full of gifts, just prefect for this challenge.

I coloured my image with my Copic Markers and added some snow with Flower Soft.  I like the way the Flower soft adds texture and interest to the card.  To complete the card I added some red ball ribbon and some fabric snow flakes.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.
