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 - Old and New Challenge

 I am getting in just under the wire this week for Irma's week 3 challenge over on Stamp Shoppe . Read about the OLD and New challenge here . Thank heavens  DH left earlier today for a businesss trip so I could finish this up . I would have liked to have got it in sooner but spent the majority of last week loading the RV and then we left at noon on Friday to go camping ( and freeze ! LOL ) . Needless to say , I am happy with how this card turned out and that it will qualify for old and new . One of my first purchases from Heidi at Stamp Shoppe was the watering can ( so old ) and my last purchase from Heidi was Heartbreaker Edwin ( and new ) .......... I used some new BG KIOSHI paper and some Webster's Pages trim . All images are colored with my wonderful Copics !  The sentiment is also a wonderful Magnolia stamp from Heidi's store Stamp Shoppe so pop on over to get some cute Magnolia stamps and keep an eye open on her site as the new Magnolia Ink magazine should be in the store sometime this week ...... and the Fairytale Magnolias should be in store before long !

Happy creating and have an enjoyable week  !
