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 Flowers

Come and Get It's challenge this week is a Spring Flower challenge.  I got a new set of Derwent Inktense pencils which I decided to use to color my image.  They were very interesting to use. They are very similar to water colour pencils but are permanent once they dry. Products that I used to create my card are:

  • Digital image, Daisy Bird Bath  by Day for Daisies (one of our sponsors)
  • Digital Image (sentiment) from my stash
  • Paper ribbon - punch
  • Pearls and ribbon from my stash 
  • Paper from my stash
  • Diamond Glaze - for the water in the pond
  • Derwent Inktense pencils
Thank you for stopping by,  Have a great day.
