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!

Birthday Clown

It is time for the monthly challenge at Patties Creations.  The theme of the challenge is Happy Birthday and I chose to use this cute birthday clown for my card.  I just adore the image called Clown with Balloons.  Patties Creations' images can be found on Esty.  


My clown was coloured with Copics and a gell pen.  I added some die cut balloons and a die cut Happy Birthday to complete my birthday card.   Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog to see the beautiful creations the other design team members have created to inspire you.
