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!

Noel Noel

Holly Jolly Christmas challenges is having a bingo challenge this week.  

2 designer papers
Die cuts

I chose to use the bottom row (die cuts, punches and pearls).  The digital image I used is from Stamp and Create, one of our sponsors this week and is called Noel Carols by Saturated Canary.

I layered my pattern papers that I cut out with a card creator die, layered a Memory Box wreath die, punched musical notes, and then added pearls and gemstones. 

The image was coloured with Copics and to complete the card I added a Noel button from my stash that I coloured with Distress Tea Dye ink.  Come join us at Holly Jolly this week.  There are lots of possibilities with this bingo challenge.  Just create your card and enter it here
