About Me

My photo
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!

Card with Mix Media Background

I made this simple card for a upcoming card swap I joined that required that we use a paper clip on the card.  I used some of the background paper that I created with my gelli plate in greens, yellow and blue.  The Tim Holtz stamp was also stamped papers that I had made playing with some mix media products. 

I coloured my ribbon some inks so that it marched the card and found some buttons in my stash to complete the card.  

Thanks for stopping by.
