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 !

Just Magnolia ..... Punch It Out Challenge

This week on Just Magnolia the challenge is to use your punches and make a card . Of course , the main image is to be a Magnolia Stamp . Read about the challenge here . I had just finished this card and being I love my Martha Stewart edge punches I thought it would be the perfect card to enter !

I was just playing with some old paper stack by Brenda Walton and thought the flowers and dragonfly would look neat layered so I used my craft knife ( which I am not very good with ) and cut the dragonfly and flowers out of the second piece of DP . I used double faced foam to give the card dimension . The white ribbon and bobble ribbon came from a ribbon from SavvynSassy . Thanks Ali for the challenge over there to use a dimensional ribbbon on a layout or card !  I even remembered to take a photo of my markers ! Things are looking up ! LOL !

Have a great week and happy creating !
