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 Place to Start Challenge - Drawing Board Sketch

I just have joined the design team over at A Place to Start and I am very excited to join the group. The theme of this challenge is a Sketch. 

This is the sketch we are using for this challenge.

This card is my version of the sketch. 

I used scrapbook paper from a stash to create my design following the design of the sketch. The image is a Tim Holtz stamped (3 years old) coloured with Copics, I added some metal gears and a die cut "hello" to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop over to the A Place to Start Blog to be inspired by the talented design team. Hope you will join us this month.  Love to see your version of the sketch.

I am entering this card in the following challenges
