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!

Merry and Bright

This is one of my projects for this weeks Anything Goes challenge at Not Just Cards.  I made my little bag with my Cricut and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge and used a digi from Deedee's Digis called Merry and Bright. Deedee's Digital is one of our sponsors this week. 

I printed my digital image on to a half sheet of Ink Jet Shrink Plastic and coloured the image with several different art pens. I stamped a Merry Christmas on to the plastic with Stazon Ink.  Once I finished colouring I sshrunkenthe plastic in my toaster over.  Next I added glitter on to the boarder and the Christmas lights and fastened the image to the bag and completed the project with a so glittered stars and a Christmas ribbon.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us at Not Just Card this week and have fun creating,
