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!

Garden Tag

I joined in a tags swap this month at Inky Fun Stampers with using a fence or gate on the tag.  I had fun creating my spring garden tag.  To make the tag I used the following product:

  • Tim Holtz large tag die 
  • Gate - cut with Cricut from the Spring Cottage Collection
  • Bird - stamp and punch by Martha Stewart
  • Digital image - poppies by Just Inklined 
  • Coloured with Copic Markers and Distress Inks
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Pathway - hand drawn  

I hope my partner enjoys my card. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
