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!

Fun in the Sun

There is another great challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges and the theme is Fun in The Sun.  One of the sponsors of the challenge is Sami Stamps and I have used their stamp called Ice Cream Beauty for my card. 

I used a couple of different designer papers on the card. I coloured the image with Copic markers, PanPastels, and Distress Ink. To complete the card I added a sentiment and a few starfishes.  Hope you will join us at Come and Get It Challenges . Thank you for stopping to take a look.
