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!

Embellishments, Pattern Papers and Ribbon/Twine Challenge

Create a card with 3 Embellishments, 2 Pattern Papers and 1 Ribbon/Twine is the challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges. I had this cute image by My Bestie's that I used for the card.   I thought she was so adorable, especially with those big eyes. 

To use the challenge requirements was quite easy.  I wanted to give her a bright orange and yellow dress so I looked through my stash of papers and came up with this flower print and some suttle yellow and white pattern paper.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up and the image was coloured with Copic Markers.

In my stash also I had some yellow and orange brads and a pretty yellow ribbon to complete the card.  

Hope you enjoy my card and will join us this week at Come and Get It Challenges.
