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!

Holiday Sweets

Paige has a great idea for a theme this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges, holiday sweets. We have a sponsor this week, Bugaboo Digital Stamps who is giving away a great prize to one lucky winner.

I love this grandma in the kitchen image I have used for my card.  I paper pieced her dress, oven glove and the bows on the garland. I coloured the rest of the image with my Copic Markers and added some Diamond Glaze on her glasses.

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week.  If you need some inspiration hop over the Holly Jolly blog and  see the cards the rest of the design team has made for you.
