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!

If Nothing Every Changes

Creative KnockOut Challenges is having a Whimsical with Wings challenge and Sweet 'n Sassy is the sponsor.  I have used our sponsor's image Everyday Miracles.   I printed their butterflies on water colour paper that I had added some colour to. For the background I used a embossing folder by Darcie and added the sentiment.    I added some Diamond Glaze to the spine of the butterfly, added a hope charm, ribbon and sprayed the card with shimmer by GooseBumps. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a creative day.
