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!

Happy Everything - Craft Your Favorite Celebration (Birthday, Holiday, Weddings, etc.

The Theme this month for the challenge at A Place to Start  is Craft your favourite craft. Show us what you like to craft - weddings, birthday, Christmas.....

I like to make wedding and new baby cards especially for family members. This baby card is for my nieces new baby.

I made this card using a chipboard core.  I drew the dress and cut it out with my Scan and Cut.  I layered  card stock, fancy paper, and glitter paper to create my baby dress. I inked the edges, added pearls, rose and added buttons to the back of the dress. 



Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day. Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by the projects of our talented design team.
