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!

Sail Away


Time for another great challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  The theme is anything goes with an optional twist of paper piecing. 

For my card I used the following ingredients

Alcohol inks Pentart and Airondack
Tim Holtz Tree Stamps
Stampendous Sailboats and Die Set
Copic Markers 
Bird Rubber Stamp

I created my background for the card with Alcohol Inks and a few rubber stamps then I paper pieced my Sailboats on to the card. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop by our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team and join in this challenge.
