About Me

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!

Creative Knockout Favourite Activity Challenge

I had lots of fun with the challenge this week at Creative Knock Outs. Bugaboo is the sponsor of this "favourite activity" challenge.  

The Bugaboo image that I used was Beach Frog Swimming.   I think he is so cute.  The sun stamp is by Drawn with Character.  I coloured them with Copics, added Diamond Glaze to the water droplets and sunglasses for texture and interest. 

I thought this was a cute card for the end of the summer season. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.   Remember to stop by the Creative Knock Outs  blog to see the cards the rest of the design team have made to inspire you.
