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!

A Button Challenge

Blue Moon Creations Crafting Station has a Get ink Stamp challenge this week using a button or buttons. Create a card or craft project and use a button(s) on it.  This is one of my favorite embellishments.  They come in large range of colour, easy to find and inexpensive to purchase. 

I love this checkers background paper I found in my stash.  The image I used is from Get Inky Stamps and is called  Short Penguin.   For my button i used a regular coat button threaded with white ribbon and layered it on a black banner and a red die cut that is part of the Gold Majesty Circles dies. I think it looks like a medallion on the card. 

The penquin was coloured with Copic Markers and then ribbon and bling were added to the card to complete it. 

Thank you for stopping by. Hop over to the Blue Moon Creations Crafting Station to see what the other design team members have created to inspire you.
