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!

Winter in Blue and White

Happy New Years.  It is the first Thursday of this New Year and my turn to show you my second challenge card for the "Winter in Blue and White"  challenge at Fitztown.  

I used Fitztown's image from their winter collection called Winter 8, you can find the image here.  I used a few different products to make my card including the interesting flower and lace ribbons I used on my card.  The flower and lace ribbons came in a bag I found at a local thrift store. I think it is very old lace and a great additive for my card.

I also used my Copic Markers, punched glittered snowflakes, glitter and white flower soft.   I think these  elements give the card more of a wintery look.  There is still time to join in this challenge.   Remember my favourite quote by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

Hope you all have a very creative 2014.
