About Me

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!

Snowflake Fun

I love this image from Fitztown called Winter 9. I decided to make my card in non-traditional Christmas/winter colours.  I paper pieced his clothes and then coloured the rest of my image with my Copic Markers.  

The background snowflake stamp is by the Great Canadian Stamp Company. The die cut snowflakes are Spellbinders Nestabilites. Once I had layered my card I added a little bling and the card was complete

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