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!

A Beautiful Flower

Come and Get It has another great challenge this week and the theme is black and white plus one.  Sami Stamps is the sponsor of this challenge and I have used an image called Beautiful Flower.  I love this simple flower.  It is so elegant. 


I chose to use the colour gold to go with my black and white. I thought that it added to the elegance of the flower. The beautiful dies I used for the card are by Spellbinders.  To complete my card I edge part of the frame with a Gold Leaf pen and added some gold gems. 

Hope you will join us this week for this challenge.  Thank you for stopping by and have a very creative week.
