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!

Mixed Media Card with Flowers

I made this card for a friend's birthday that is coming up soon.  The flowers I used for my card came from my stash and I believe they are from Bo Bunny.  The background and leaves are cut from a Gelli Print paper I had made using bubble wrap, acrylic paint and inks.  I used a Sizzix die for the leaves called "leaves". 

 I used Distress Ink on my doilies, fence and background for my stamped sentiment.  The butterfly is a digital image from Fitztown that I printed on Gelli Print paper. 

Hope you enjoy the card.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
