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!

Colour Challenge at Fitztown

This is my spring coloured card that I created for the challenge this week at Fitztown.   I love the colours of spring colors.  I used the beautiful image by Fitztown which I coloured with Copic Markers.  

I made my flowers from some die cuts and wet the flowers with water and crinkled with them to give them some shape and texture.  Some face die cuts were added to the frame, bling along with a sentiment.   The background was made with some bling fabric from from the dollar store.   

Thank you for stopping by.  Come join us the challenge this week.  There is still time, just create your card and enter it here
