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 !

Monthy challenge for Little Stamp Shoppe

Heidi from Little Stamp Shoppe  issued a November challenge with a great stamp giveaway at the end of the month . The challenge is to use a Magnolia image and make a Christmas card with not typical colors ( no red nor green ) and then link it to her store blog for a double entry this month if you add her blinkie in your side bar ! She also has requested that you don't your use entries with other store or blog challenges which works well for me .... I just think it is only fair ! LOL !

 So here is my non-typical colored card using Tilda & the Magnolia Christmas ornament

 I used a fancy embossed card I had sitting in my stash for this one and then handcut the inside out and then mounted some OLD WORLD patterned carstock underneath before mounting  Tilda in Christmas stockings and the Christmas ornament . The ornament was colored with my Copic markers and then sprayed with Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist to make it sparkly ( not that it shows here ! ) . Tilda was colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Atyou Spica glitter pens !

 Sorry for the horrible cutting job on all of my card this time but I am having a flare-up of arthritis in my right thumb which is not helping any for cuttting ! I am not quitting though ..... just working through the pain !!! LOL !

Happy creating and hope that we see some fabulous cards this round as we do every month on Little Stamp Shoppe
