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!

Thank You

Time for another great challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.  The theme of this weeks challenge is "Thankful".  I created this card for a friend to tell her how thankful I was to have her in my life.

I  used a cutting die for this card to create the circle gate fold.  The pattern paper is by Stampin Up and the sentiment by Tim Holtz.  I also used an embossing folder, flowers, die cut butterflies and some gems.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring cards of our talented design team.  Please join us in this challenge, we all have things in our life that make us thankful.
