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!

613 Avenue Create - Challenge - Anything Goes/Optional Twist Any Holiday

Time for another great creative challenge over at 613 Avenue Create. The Theme this month is as alway Anything Goes and the optional twist is to create a card for any holiday (your choice of holiday). 

My choice for this challenge was the New Years Holiday.

This is my card.

My card was inspired by bubbles cards create by Teresa Kovalak that I found on YouTube. 

Here  are a couple of her videos and there are many more on YouTube. 



I made several different backgrounds with the technique, some which I may use in a frame.  You never know how they will turn out and it is fun to doodle on them.

Products that I used for the card are

Several brands of Alcohol Inks from my stash
An assortment of glass jars and shot glasses
An assortment of Sharpies and Posca Pens for Doodling
Yubo Paper
New Years Die Cut 

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

Have a Happy Holiday and hope to see you back here again in 2022.
