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!

Gems and Pearls

We are back from holiday break here at Crafty Cardmakers and another challenge.  This weeks challenge is a Gems/Pearls challenge ready hosted by DT Monika. 

I created this card for a niece's birthday card using a digital image by Norma J. Burnell.  I just love her images, so pretty.  Once I had coloured my image with copics I added some Prima flowers and pearls to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog to be inspired by the cards of our talented design team.
