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 !

Magnolia Down Under .... Challenge #31

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #31 issued up the challenge of a sketch , girlie and orange on your card ..... The sketch , no problem , Girlie , no problem .... Orange .... another story ! Not my favorite color to work with until I remembered I had some sparkly paper with orange on it . Unfortunately , it has been in my stash forever so I don't remember the manufacturer !!!! OOPS !!!!  I struggled with this card so was happy when I said I am done !

For those of you that know me , you wouldn't be surprised when I say I am a bit of a rebel when it comes to using my Copics ........ I use lots of markers to achieve what I am looking for , lots of colors and usually have a HUGE mess on my desk when I am finished .... just ask DH !!!! LOL !
