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!

Deck the Halls

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges is having a "Deck the Halls" challenge this week and this is my card for the challenge.

I used one of our sponsor The Stamping Boutique's image for this card.  The image is called Princess Jennifer Latte Decorating the Tree image.  You can find the image I used here.

I decided to use non-traditional Christmas colours for my card.  I thought they suited the princess.  I coloured my card with Copics and a silver pen  and then added some Diamond Glaze to give the Christmas balls some texture and shine. To add some  sparkle to the tree and her little black party dress I added silver  and black glitter.

Thank you for stopping by and have a very creative day.
