About Me

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!

Use a Doily Challenge

Come and Get It Challenges this week has another great challenge, use a doily on your card.  My Besties is the sponsor this week and Sherri has given us some beautiful stamps to design with.  I am using one of their Big Eyed Big Head digital image stamp that can be found in the Esty store here

The far background of the card is an embossing folder of feathers that I inked the embossing folder before I ran it through the Big Shot.  I layered the page with a couple of white doilies and a doily in the colour of her dress.   I added some flowers  from Southern Ridge Trading Company and a sentiment by Magenta.   

Hope you will join us in the challenge this week.  Pop over to our challenge blog to see the beautiful creations that our design team have created to inspire you.
