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!

Something New

Welcome back to come and Get It Challenges.  This is our first challenge of the year and the theme is "Something New" .  The idea of the challenge is to use something new in your project.  I have used some measuring tape ribbon that I just purchased at the craft store. 

The image I used is from Bugaboo one of your great sponsors this year and previous years.  The image is called  JJ Sewing Tape

The background of the card is some gelli print paper which I added sewing related stamps to create a collage.  The sentiment of a stamp from my stash.  To complete my card I added a thread card, measuring tape, a flower and thread.  Hope you enjoy my card and have a creative day.  Stop by our challenge blog to view the inspiring cards of our design team.
