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!

Halloween Treat Box - Not Just Cards

Welcome to another challenge at Not Just Cards. This is our second challenge.   My project this week is a flat back treat box using an image from one of our sponsors Fantasy Art by Nikki Burnette.

The digital stamp is called  Fantasy Art - Witch Stamp - Zoe. I think she is just perfect for this Halloween treat box.  I coloured the image with Copics, PanPastels and glitter. You can find the instructions for this box at SplitCoastStampers.  I made the box 1 1/2 times the size of the box in the tutorial.  

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope you will join our challenge this week.  Just create your project and enter it here
