About Me

My photo
Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

It is all About the Flowers

Come and Get It has a flower challenge this week. Fred She Said Designs is one of the sponsor of this challenge. I have lots of Fred`s images in my collection (I was once on their design team).  It is a great place to get flower images.   Here are some side views of the card. 

This was the first time I had used my Sizzix Accordion Flip 3-D Die. It took a little bit to set up my card but the die was very easy to assemble.
