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!

I joined a swap this month at the Rubber Inkers with the theme of Bingo.  I had this Bingo embossing folder that I thought was perfect for this swap.

The embossed Bingo image was coloured with Distress Inks in several colours.  The rubber stamp I used for the from of the card was a portion of a rubber stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms called GM Series.  I coloured the image also with Distress Inks.

I added some stars, Ephemara papers , arrow brad, mess tape for dry walling (background), ribbon, faux stitches and travel stamps to make up  my collage card.   Hope my swap partner enjoys the card I made them.

Thank you for stopping by tonight and have a creative day.
