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.

Happy Anniversary - Love is all You Need

Time for another great challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers this month.  The theme of the challenge is "Love is all you  need". 

I made this card for my husband for our 30th wedding anniversary. I used a combination of heart  and love cutting dies, embossing folders, mixed media paper, an Italian poem rubber stamp and a gel  pen  along of crafting products.
