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!

Learn How to Soar

Thank you for stopping by.  I made this tag for a  tag swap I was in at Inky Fun Stampers.  The theme of the swap was birds and I chose to make my tag with a eagle rubber stamp I has in my stash by Old Island Rubber Stamps.  
The feather also is a rubber stamp from my collection that I have had for many years. The company that made it has skipped my mind right now.  The tree is a Tim Holtz's die. 
The eagle and feather was coloured with Copics. The card board tag was distressed then painted with a couple of different blue Distress paints. The sentiment was made on my computer and was found on Pinterest.  The lace used to tie is the tag is by Tim Holtz. 
I am entering this tag  in the following challenges:
