About Me

BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

In less then a week .......

Christmas will be here and I hope these cards get where they are supposed too ! LOL ! I wasn't going to send any and I sure wasn't going to make any cards this year with having pneumonia but I found last week that I felt well enough to sit for about an hour a day and play ! They are all pretty simple but I love these stamps by Black Penny " Christmas Critters " . The more I used them , the more I wanted to play ! I also tried a new product called " STICKLES " which is a glue /sparkle mix and perfect for added fun on some of the cards . All the rub-ons came from MM rub-on book " Christmas " .....work so well that I actually used the rub-ons in most of my cards interiors ! Thanks to Lisa's Scrap Shack for supplying most of my supplies ! I should just sign DH's cheque over to you every month for all the goodies I buy from you :-)

Okay this isn't a card but my cat Tigger . The antlers were actually for the Yorkies but they hid every time they came out and there was noway we could get them to let us stick them on their heads ! As you can tell Tig is NOT impressed !

I have all my shopping completed ( until I hit a store and buy just one more thing ! ) but oh my , I am going to have to get cracking and finish wrapping those gifts ! I have a room downstairs that is loaded to the hilt .... the grandkids are getting spoiled by Grandpa and Grandma yet again !!! Boys are as much fun to buy for as the girls are ....or so we have found out ! The VISA has been smoking the past couple of weeks !!

I doubt that I will get any baking done this year .... just don't have the energy for it ! Besides , we don't need those extra calories . Off to DD's on Boxing Day after spending Christmas Day at home with the rest of our immediate family ! They will get just as spoiled as the younger kids . Every year we say the same thing ........ we are cutting back and every year we go way over board !!! Oh well , they can look at it as getting their inheritance early :-) .

Through all the craziness of being sick , new flooring and Christmas prep , our Kandi dog collapsed on the new flooring last week and we thought we were going to have to make the "call" this time . She couldn't stand on her front leg for 2 days and her back legs ...due to the hip and knee displacia ....wouldn't hold her up . On the third day , she limped gingerly to the door to be let out and went up and down the steps with no problem . Today she is walking on all four legs like nothing was ever wrong !!! DD told me not to write her off just yet as she has an amazing ability to heal herself ! Yes , this dog has many miles left in her !!!
