About The Episode

Episode archive posted on February 15, 2021

We went north of the U.S. border again to spend the evening with another fabulous Canadian crafter. Candice Richardson from Candoodle Creations is a “youngster” in the cardmaking industry who brings excitement and “joy sparks” to a craft my “seasoned” community has loved for years. I must say it was just a delight to learn about her journey to card making, how she seizes  it like a piece of chocolate at a crop, and shares it readily and gladly.

Don’t you love Candice’s ideas on creativity are? “Creativity can be anything…there’s no evaluation to creativity. If you are having fun(n) in the process; that’s what counts.” Yep, you card makers, to paraphrase a tile my Mom had in her kitchen, “She who makes cards is twice blessed. Once in the making, and once in the sending.” But, really, that is just the beginning.

I know you are going to enjoy getting to know Candice during this episode and on her social media platforms. Thank you, Candice, for joining us.

AND, YOUR SUBMISSIONS – well, just WOW! Please join us when I review them on CONTRIBUTOR SHOWCASE, Tuesdays, at 1:00 p.m. CST.

See you at the wheel!

All the elements for this card were in my dish/drawer of bits I had created. I love how it all came together and used up some of my stash.

The stencil was used on the circle under the branch which I think may be a loquat tree. I'm kind of starting to like orange after all!

Not much explanation needed here. Just a pretty little butterfly on a circle with leaves and flowers on an orange card base.

Circles, plant, orange plus two, but no stencil. I don't have a stencil so I'm pretending my plaid paper is stenciled.

Lots of circles for this card, with my favourite blend of oranges (stencilled) and a spiky little friend offering hugs.
