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!

Cutting Dies and Punches challenge

This card I made for the challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers.  The theme of the challenge is to use two dies or punches or one of each. 

To create my card I used a digital image by All Dressed Up called Festival Lily and 2 rubber stamps and die by Stampin Up along with Distressed Oxides. The two dies I used on the card are the circle stitched and the butterfly die. The image was coloured with Copic markers and a Wink of Stella.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our lovely creative design team.
