- 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!

Time for another great challenge at 613 Avenue Create this month.
As always our challenge is anything goes but this month we have an optional twist: Succulent Inspiration.
Create a project inspired by the picture below.
The pattern I used for the card is called Pop it Up Twisted Circle Card.
I used Tim Holtz Hipster stamps to create the card. I used similar papers in the cards and many of the same embellishments. I coloured the gears with Copic Markers and Distress Ink. I added gears, diamond glaze, wooden numbers, and a sentiment to complete the card.
They were fun cards to make and always a pleasure to make them for their birthday.
Thank you for stopping by and have a creative month. Hope you will join us this month for this challenge.
