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!

Raspberry, Chocolate and Cream

I found this old Stampendous stamp in my collection today and I do not remember buying it but whats new!  I loved it's collage design and thought it was a great stamp for a vintage looking card.  I distressed the edges of the card, antiqued the lace and pearls. 

The products I used for this card were

Copic Markers
Designer paper from my stash
Lace that I coloured a chocolate brown colour
Pearls that I added chocolate colour ink to
Happy Love Day sentiment stamp by Saavy stamps
Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch  

Thank you for stopping to take a look and I hope you have a very creative 2014.
