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 !

Little Stamp Shoppe January challenge

Over on Little Stamp Shoppe the January challenge was posted and being I was a day late on getting my tag , I thought it would be a good idea and get my card done for the challenge early in the month and get in on the month end draw ! The challenge this month is to use your oldest Magnolia stamp and the oldest paper you have in your stash .... Well being I have a HUGE selection of " old " paper ( I do love to hoard my patterned paper ) I decided to use some of my Chatterbox patterned paper that has been " hidden " from the world . I LOVED the earlier Chatterbox patterned paper so it was a hard decision deciding what to use ! this is from their " rooms " collection , namely Loft and Corridor ! As for an " old " Magnolia ..... well I have only just started this love afair with these little guys and gals so none of Magnolias are " old " ! I did chose a stamped image from one of the older Magnolia Tilda's from the 2007 collection ..... Tomtinga Tilda ! My , how Magnolias have evolved in such a short time ! The newest release has Tilda wearing high heels ! ( Heidi has posted a card with her in her heels on the Little stamp Shoppe blog ) .

 Here is my take on the January challenge

Tomtinga Tilda is colored with Copic markers , some embellishments from my stash , rub-ons that have been sitting forever on my Clip-It Up , Peggy's Pretty's , ribbon and some Stickles finish off my card !

TFL ..... and check out the challenge !


  1. Donna this is so cute!! I would have loved to see *more* of your CBX paper, I still have a ton of their room collections too! Tomtinga Tilda is one of my faves, I do love the older style. You coloured her so beautifully too, love the blue/red combo.

  2. Could you tie cuter bows????!!! Those are sweet!! Great card Donna!! Guess I better get busy on this challenge!! :)

  3. Awesome card Donna! I love this older Tilda and you've done a fab job with your colouring! Love the papers too - I too am a paper hoarder so I know how tough it is to cut into some of the favourites, lol!! A really lovely colour combo!
    Hugs, Danielle
