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!

Masculine Birthday Card

I made this card for my brother-in-laws birthday this month.  He really likes old trucks so I thought this digital image by Fred, She said Designs was the prefect image for my card.

I coloured the image with my Copic Markers, silver glitter pen and distress inks. I added Diamond Glaze on the headlights to give them a glass like appearance. The lock and key are a die cut by Tim Holtz  and I added the chain for interest along with the brads.  I layered the truck over a gear embossed paper.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I am off to my craft room to stamp some more.
