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 over at a Place to Start this week. As always the challenge is anything goes and this weeks optional twist  is Key it Simple. Just use a key and lock or just a key in your project. 

I decided to make a farewell card for a friend that is moving away and starting a new adventure in their lives.

I drew my house shape and played with my dimensions.  Then I layered the house shape first with the green craft paper then drew another layer to add to the front of the house.

  I used a piece of my Mixed Media scrap of paper from my stash  for the front of the house then added the door and windows.  The sentiment is computer generated..  I inked the edges with distress inks, added my key, some doodling and stamped the chimney with a brick pattern stamp. 

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 tea.

  1. Awesom card. I love it. You've created a lot of dimension with all those layers and the different papers you've chosen. And the key at the top is perfect for this card. María, xx
