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 !

Stamp Shoppe Challenge ... Pastel card

This month over on Stamp Shoppe ( also known by us " old " regulars as Little Stamp Shoppe ) they are having a challenge over 4 weeks . Read about it here . Pastel card this week is the challenge using a Magnolia Stamp ( Heidi carries only Magnolia stamps in her shop and ships only in Canada ! ) . This months challenge has an awesome prize at the end of the month if you are interested and win ........ 15 % off coupon and a surprise in your mailbox ! Thanks Irma for hosting this great challenge and for being April's Guest DT ! Irma does the most amazing cards and definitely shows a love for the Magnolias that she uses on all her creations !

 Here is my entry for this week using Magnolia " Bee " Tilda !

Tilda was colored with Copics and I used a non-traditional coloring for her ... after all the challenge was pastel colors ! LOL ! My pattern paper was from a stack in my stash  ( it is embossed and glossy but doesn't show )  and the flower was from Michael's bridal section as were the seed twigs ! Ribbon is from CTMH and " HI " from some sentiment package that I bought cheap at Zeller's !

Have fun creating this week and come join in the fun on Stamp Shoppe ( and check out Heidi's store while you are at it ! )
