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 !

Drunken Stamper's Challenge for May 1st-6th

 Over on Drunken Stampers this week the challenge is to make a Mother's Day card ..... easy right ? Well there is twist to this as you have to use a picture ( or copy ) of yourself when you were a wee one somewhere on your card . Well I am not one for showing my face anywhere especially on a card ! Well after much deliberating and mucking with my Copics , stamps and papers , this is my card ( sometime it is hard to be DT and have to actually do the challenges ! LOL )

I chose to make an easle card as I think you get the whole look of the card that way when it is sitting out . I used some patterned paper from DCWV " HOME " collection , Magnolia's Christmas morning Tilda ( but I just love her and don't think she looks like it is Christmas ! LOL ). She is colored with Copics and some added sparkle with STICKLES over her dress .Tilda is really sparkly  in real life  !Martha Stewart edge punch and Nesties label die were used as well . Magnolia flowers airbrushed with Copics , some ribbons and some sparkly brads finish off the card . And yes that is me about 1958 ............................... guess I just dated myself didn't I ? LOL !

So that is my card ....... come join us and have some fun . We will be looking for you !

By the way , I LOST a lot of stuff off my laptop ( and probably have fried the laptop as well :-(   ) so this is why my photos are different then what is on the Drunken Stampers blog this week ....... I am using my son's laptop ( I detest it ! ) and my PC ( which I don't use very often any more since I got my laptop ..... ) but I miss MY laptop .......................

Have a great week and happy creating !
