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 !

Paper Sundae's First challenge

 I was so happy yesterday when Paper Sundae issued their very first challenge that I had to sit right down at my desk and create this card for it . My baby Magnolia stamp just arrived in my hands so I just had to play with her as she is too cute ! I tried something different with my BB folder too as I inked it up with some Black Cherry Staz-On ink before running the fold through the CB .... It turned out perfect with the Dotted Swiss folder and with a light sanding over the top revealed all these little dots . I also used some Minds Eye Glitter Paper Stack that I picked up at WINNER'S for $5 as it a bit beraggled so marked down ..... I LOVE a good bargain ! The paper is very shiny and pretty but the photo doesn't do this justice .... add a $ Store find ( the baby safety pin ) , some velvet ribbon from Savvy'nSassy and voila ! My first challenge card done ! Now on to the next challenge .................
