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!

It's Your Birthday Go Wild

I am back with another card for a great challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.  The theme of the challenge is All creatures Great and Small. 

 I fell in love with this cute stamp set by Gerda Steiner.  I was inspired by a video by Sandy Alnock and made this card for a friend. I coloured my card with Copics, Posca Pens, Pencil Crayon, and Distressed Inks.  I added Diamond Glaze to give texture to the headlights and binoculars and clouds in the sky. I cut out all of my animals and had fun piling the animals in the jeep. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. 
Remember to check out our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team.
