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 !

Just Magnolia ... Jay Jay's sketch

A new challenge has just been issued on Just Magnolia ..... Jay Jay's sketch   just click the link and you can see what an awesome sketch this is to play with !

I decided to make my Grandson , Aiden a cute little boy card for Valentine's Day that wasn't super mushy ! Not that he would notice as he isn't 3 yet ! LOl ! So this card is a first for me in playing with my Copic Airbrush for a background . It is going to take some practice but I sure had fun playing ! It was also a first in me using masking for my 2 images ! Time consuming but well worth it ! Now I am going to have to find more stamps ! ( Any excuse to shop ! LOL )

Looking forward to checking out more cards as they added on the challenge list and a few more blogs ! love to see what everybody is creating and so much inspiration ! Thanks for looking everybody and the kind comments !
