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 !

A month of birthdays and creating cards

One thing about birthdays , is the fact I actually sit and play with my stamps , paper and glue ! I enjoy making cards as I find it very relaxing .... and I like that each card are my own creations and hope the receiver of such enjoys them as much as I do creating them . This little farm scene is a stamp by PINK CAT STUDIOS and it was fun to work with .... even if it has been sitting unused since I bought it a long while ago ! Lisa's son Brayden received this card for his 6th birthday last week ... the same day as my husband's birthday ! Now I will never forget his birthday :-)

This card is also a stamp by PINK CAT STUDIO ( Lila ) and she is so adorable ! I just cut a circle out with my scalloped Nestabilities and then decorated it with the Martha Stewart twig punch ! Some stickles added and a few extra embellishments and my Granddaughter #2 received this for her 12th birthday today !

This is an acrylic card that I made for my daughter ( and yes her birthday isn't for a couple weeks but she got to open it early :-)
The main image is stamped on the acrylic card and rest stamped on cardstock that is held on by fancy brads . The back of this card is also stamped and is the background of the Lila card . This was a fun card to do !

This is a stamped imagine from Stampin'Up ...... I love this stamp and will be using it a LOT ! This card was for my husband :-)
I also made a card for my SIL but for some reason , it isn't showing ! It is another stamped card of a fisherman ....
all in all , it was a great few days of creating but now I need to find some time to get some Christmas cards made and sent ! Every year I figure I am going to start early and every year I am being pushed for time !
Happy stamping , happy creating makes for a happy and content lady !
