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!

Sweets for My Sweetie

This is my project for this weeks button and bows challenge at Fitztown.  I had fun making my goody box with this sweet image from the Valentine digital collection of Fitztown called Valentine 11.  I think the little hearts on the bottom of his feet are so cute. 

I used my Cricut to cut the box for the project. The image was coloured with a combination of Copic Markers, Krylon gold leafing pen, and glitter pen.   The sentiment came from my stash along with the button.  To complete the card I added ribbon, a bow and some bling.  I love the look of the box.  I think I will give it to my grandson for Valentines day with chocolates inside of course. 

There is still time to join this challenge and I hope you will.
