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!

Enjoy the Gift of Nature

I like the Pine Cone Spray from Fred She Said Designs.   There is so much you can do with the digital images in the set.

For this simple card I put two images together to make the oval shape that I used for this card.  I added some colour to the image and mounted the image on several different card stocks. The wood grain background was a embossing folder that I added some Distress Ink too. The sentiment is  by Inkadinkado.

Thank you for stopping by.  I am off to clean up my craft room.
