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 !

An Announcement ...... and a challenge

 I am still in shock and in awe of the fact I was asked to join the DT ( design team for those of you that don't know what that stands for :) on Drunken Stampers  .... a card challenge blog . Basically it is a 3 month term of creating cards based on the challenges ( which I do anyways but this time I know what the challenges are before you do ! LOL ) .......

 I will be honest , I was not sure I wanted a DT ever , I didn't want to commit to anything long term with all that goes on in our house but Peggy and Spike were more then willing to give me a push to at least try to commit for the short term .... and with a kick in the BUTT from my DH who told me I can do it even if I have no faith in myself , well here I am .... DT member for Drunken Stampers ! I hope I can inspire at least one person to try create , have some fun and believe in themselves ! ( I have to thank my husband as he is my biggest fan , my rock , my pocket book and the one that believe in me more then I believe in myself ! And thanks to Peggy and Spike for giving me a chance to prove I am DT material ...... and a BIG thank you to my friends that enable ME on all the good stuff out there to buy and create with .........  you know who you are ......... right Lisa ? LOL !  )

The first challenge I was asked to create for was based on a photo of Irish Dress found  here .

This is the card I created based on the dress

SURPRISE !!! No Magnolia stamp nor Copic markers were used * gasp * but a lovely stamp from Penny Back  , lace from Savvy n' Sassy ribbon kits that I sprayed with gold glimmer mist and then touched up with Gold ink . The Prima Flowers were also touched with with gold ink . All cardstock is Bazzill and came out of my huge stash ! Nesties were used to cut the dies and they too were rubbed with the gold ink pad .

So come join us on Drunken Stampers so we can see what you can do with this week's challenge ...............

Happy creating !!!!!! Have a wonderful week !
