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!

Tri Fold Shutter Card

I made this Tri Fold Shutter birthday card for an upcoming card swap at Inky Fun Stampers, one of the Yahoo Groups I belong to.  I like the very colourful papers I used and had fun mixing and matching them.  

Once I got the basic card made I added several sentiments, flowers and leaves and a few brads.  Now that I have the card made I need to figure out how to mail it.  I will have to make something to protect the front flowers. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Remember my favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Do something creative for yourself today.
