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!

Where the Boys Are

I made this card for a challenge at Come and Get It Challenges.  The Challenge is to make a card with the theme "Where the Boys Are". 

I used a digital image from Bugaboo one of the sponsors of the challenge called Gus Fish Whisperer .    I coloured him with my Copic Markers.  I added Diamond Glaze to the water droplet and to Gus' glasses.  The Diamond Glaze shattered a little bit and it looks like Gus' glasses are broken.   The punched fish were done with a punch from my collection by McGill Craftivity. 

Thank you for stopping to take a look and have a creative day.
