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!

Thing that Go Bump in the Night

Time for another great card challenge over at Crafty Card Makers this week.  The theme of the challenge is "things that go bump in the night".

I used Stampendous' Raven Skull and Stampin Up's Happy Fright Night Halloween stamps for this card along with Distress Inks and Copics. 

I used a spider cutting die, ribbon and Halloween paper from my stash. 

Halloween cards are always fun to make. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.

Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by the creativity of our design team.

 I am sad to let you know that this is the last post for Crafty Cardmakers. I have participate in the group for more than 5 years and have enjoyed the group immensely. 

 Lin after 9 years of running things at Crafty Cardmakers has made the decision to close the blog. She has had health issues for some time now and has come to the realisation that actually struggling on like this has been stifling any creativity she started out with. 

So this will be our last challenge. Lin will be back on 9th November with the winner and top 5 of this challenge but that will be our last post.

Thank you for all of our participants in the challenges. Keep on creating and stay safe.

    1. I am very sad about the blog closing. I love the 4 years I have had with the group. Lin did a wonderful job of running the group and I am sorry she is not well. Keep safe and hope we are able to see each other in blogland.
