Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

Let's Go Shopping

I made this little shopping bag as one of my projects for this weeks Not Just Cards anything goes challenges. The image is from All  Dressed Up, one of this month's sponsors.  I just love their cute images.  This image is called I love my puppy.

I coloured my image with Copic markers, added bling and glitter to give the bag some  sparkle.  the background pattern paper and the bows were papers I had in my stash. The butterfly was die cut from a scrap of alcohol ink paper I had in my re-cycle bin.
