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!

Christmas Polar Family Canvas

The year is ending and Christmas is nearly here.  It is time for a Christmas challenge at Come and Get It Challenges. I have  made this Christmas theme canvas for our final challenge using an image from one of our great sponsors we had this year, Polkadoodles.  The image is called Polar Family - Octavia Frosted Winter.

My canvas is 8 x 8 and I glued a piece of watercolour paper to the top on the canvas with the image I had chosen.  I coloured the image with my new watercolours by Mungyo. Love their bright colours.   The trees in the background are Tim Holtz and were stamped with Stampin' Up Mossy Meadow.   The snow is graded Styrofoam and glitter mixed.  

It has been a wonderful year at Come and Get It Challenges.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the creations of our design team and join in this challenge. 

Hope you have a wonderful holiday and that you join us again for more great challenges in 2107.
