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!

Have a Fantastic Day

I made this card for a friend this week using several different techniques. My Fred, She Said Design image of the old truck was printed on dictionary paper and coloured with Copic Markers, then I added Diamond Glaze to the head lights and windows to represent glass. 

The background paper was layered with nylon mess drywall tape from my husbands shop. The tabs are a Stampin Up punch and the sentiment stamp is by  A Muse Artstamps.

Hope you enjoy by card and I hope you have a fantastic day.
