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!

Have a Beautiful Christmas

I love this Christmas scene stamp by Just Inklined that I choose for this Christmas Scene Challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week.  The digital image is called Little Church in the Snow, a fitting name for this digital stamp.

I added some colour with Copic Markers and then added glitter for the snow.  The sentiment by A Muse ArtStamps was embossed with silver embossing powder and a little bit of bling was added to complete the card. 

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week.  Never too early to start on your Christmas cards.   Pop over to Holly Jolly`s blog and see what the design team has created to inspire you.
