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!

Spring is Here

At Come and Get It Challenges this week I am the host of the challenge and I chose a Spring/Easter challenge.  Fitztown is the sponsor this week and they have a wonderful prize for one lucky participant. 

I used one of Fitztown's beautiful images called Fae 37 for my card. I love how Morgan Fitzsimon draws these beautiful ladies. When I thing of spring I think of the colour green.  I love the smell of green grass and new leaves. 

My image was coloured with Copic Markers and glitter and I then added a few punched flowers, doily, butterfly and some bling.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very creative day.  Please join in the challenge this week at Come and Get It, just create your card and enter it here
