About Me

My photo
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 !

Mom's birthday card

A cute Magnolia Tilda with flowers and a home made flower adorn my my Mom's birthday card . The flower was fun to make as I airbrushed the back of the punched flower shapes with my Copic marker as the paper was white on the back then I sprayed front and back with Angel Glittermist , let dry then put it all together ! It is actually very sparkly to see ! Here are the Copic markers I used to color Tilda with ....... though I may have forgot one or two ! I also used a glaze pen on the yellow roses and the leaves of the bouquet .

 Now I really have to go get her parcel wrapped and ready to send if it is going to get there in time for her birthday !
