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 !

Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Stamp with a different use

Over on Magnolia Down Under Challenge #29 the challenge until January 17th midday is to use a Magnolia Stamp for something other then the intended stamp was for ....... example Christmas for a birthday , etc . I chose this Valentine Tilda for a Thinking of You card as she is so cute .... especially with the decorated cupcake which I used Rock Candy Stickles then some glitter over the top ... it is much more shiny IRL ! I enjoyed using this Tilda stamp so think she will quickly become one of my favorites ! It is also the first time I have colored Tilda with red hair and I am happy to report , I LOVE it ! The DP is from an old stash as is the ribbon . They just worked well together and I was pleased how quickly and easily this card went together !

TFL .... and Happy Creating !


  1. Donna, gorgeous card. Love the pink and brown colour combo--one of my favorites. Red-haired Tilda is beautifully coloured.

  2. LOVE IT!!! What were the colors you used for the hair??? Let me know! :)

  3. I come from a long line of red heads, so I love when I see Tilda as a red head. Love how you colored her and the colors you used are wonderful too. Cupcake is so sweet. Great take on the challenge. Thanks for sharing with us at MDUC. Hope you come back soon for another challenge.
