About Me

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 !

Just Magnolia ..... Week 44 Birthday Challenge and Drunken Stampers

Well I played this weekend and got a couple cards done . One is for Just Magnolia Week 44 Birthday challenge  which I had no problem coming up a card for .

Here is Sweet Tilda from the Raising the Ceiling collection . I just love this little girl as she has captured my heart !


You are never going to believe me when I tell you that I forgot to write down my Copics ! I can tell you that I did use my Copic airbrush for the background though and love how this turned out ! I am beginning to love the masking and the airbrushing ! It will take a bit of playing to master it though ! The flowers are from Magnolia and are so beautiful in real life ! Martha Stewart was used for the leaves , Peggy's Pretties as an accent . The tag was hand rubbed with inks and stamped with a sentiment from Stamps of Life . The ribbon and lace was from Savvy n Sassy ribbon kits.

 I never got my Copics written down because I was in too much of hurry to get at this Birthday card for my neighbour . My first attempt at an easle card . It has meets the challenge on Drunken Stampers
using Lace and Glitter . I am not one to use Glitter much as I wear moe thne I get on anywhere it is supposed to be but I did manage to get some on these flowers !

Have a great week of creating and come play on these two sites !
