About Me

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!

Birthday Wishes

Shell chose a sketch challenge at Come and Get It this week and this is the card I made for the challenge.  Here is the sketch that I based my card on.

I used some pattern papers from my collection to create the background of my card.  I then added the sentiment and two ribbons.  The last thing I added was the butterfly cut from some paper I was playing with on the Gelli Plate that I thought had an interesting pattern.   

Come join us the week at Come and Get it and have a very creative day.
