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!

Things with Wings - Fruit Fly

Julie's turn to pick the challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges and she chose a great challenge for this time of the year, Things with Wings.  Since I live in the hot and sunny Okanagan I instantly thought of all the fruit trees ,the extreme hot weather we have had this year and the bugs.  

Bugaboo is our sponsor and I have used their scene it, fruit fly digital stamp for the image.  When we have Bugaboo as our sponsor we always have such a great prize for the winner.

I used bright colours on my card to represent this the sunny summer we are having and showing these fruit flies are having lots of fun.  The stripes on the card are Washi tape and the sentiment is by A Muse Artstamps. 

Hope you will join us this week at Come and Get It. Thank you for stlopping by to take a look and I hope you have a wonderful week.
