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!

A Fairy Birthday.

I am excited to announce I have been invited to be a member of the Design Team at Through the Craft Room Door

All set for another Anything Goes Challenge here at TTCRD?

Our Sponsor for this challenge is …

The Colour of Love - Formally Lacy Sunshine

This is the card I made for this challenge using our sponsor's image called Wildflower.

I first used a combo of Distress Oxide inks on watercolour paper for my background  which I blended then spritz with water. I put the card base in my printer and printed the wildflower image on the paper. 

I used a combination of Copic Markers, Posca, and Gel pens to colour the image and add a little more white to the the background.  To complete the card I added a die cute sentiment. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Hope you will join us this challenge. Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring cards our design team has created for you.
