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!

Beachy Colours

I made this card for an upcomig swap at the Yahoo Group Inky Fun Stampers where the theme is beach colours. I had this pretty shell background paper in my stash and I thought I would run with the colours. 

The fish scene is a rubber stamp from my collection that I coloured with my PanPastels.  I had also in my stash this ribbon I think looks like seaweed. I added some shell like buttons, pearls and a couple of pieces of Shrinky Dink plastic that I had stamped and coloured to look like sea glass. 

Thank you for stopping by.
