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!

Owl's it Going? Texture Challenge

Welcome to the "Add Texture Challenge" at Crafty Cardmakers this week. I created this card for a friend and this challenge.

I used an owl die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs and a Darcie Clog and Gear embossing folder to create my texture for this card.  I also additional the texture with Tim Holtz's metallic paper and some metal gears. 

Come join us at Craft Cardmakers for this new challenge and visit our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design teams project. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
