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!

Dragonflies and Butterflies

Butterflies or/and dragonfies is the theme of this week's challenge at Come and Get It Challenges.  Fitztown is our sponsor for this challenge and the winner will win a fabulous prize.  

My card image is called Fae 32 and is part of the set of digital stamp of the Fae series by Morgan Fitzsimons. I used the Upright Z fold card technique to make this card, you can find the tutorial here

My image was coloured with Copic Markers and glitter.  To tie in the background paper I embossed it with a feather embossing folder by Crafts-Too and coloured it with shades of orange and yellow PanPastels.  The final step to complete the card was I added a sentiment and some bling.
