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!

Life Cycle

I made this card for an upcoming card sketch swap for one of my Yahoo groups.  The sentiment and bicycle are from a set of unmounted rubber stamps that at this moment the maker's name escapes me. 

This was a very simple card to make.  I chose the pattern papers from a paper pack Tim Holtz, Idea-ology.  It is a very nice set of papers with a weather distress look to them.  The three banners were cut strips that I ran through the Big Shot in a wood grain embossing folder. The brown paper with the binder holes is from my stash. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very creative day.
