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 - Anything Goes/ Optional Twist Up, Up in the Sky

Time for another great challenge over at 613 Avenue Create .  The theme of this challenge is Anything Goes /optional Twist Up, Up in the Sky. (Sun, Moon, Stars, Sleighs, Angels, Clouds, etc.)

This is the card I made for the challenge.  I chose a Christmas scene because  we are quickly coming up to the holiday season.

This is my card.

 I used a cutting die for the three wise men scene. I used a embossing folder for the background of the card.  I cut my Christmas ball out with this beautiful cutting die then filled the areas with a gold piece for the star,  mixed media paper I had created that was in my stash.  I coloured the ground with my copic markers.  To finish of my card I added a bow. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Remember to pop over to 613 Avenue Create to be inspired by our talented design team.
