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 !

week 6 of Savvy N Sassy Ribbon Rave challenges

 Well I have completed all 6 rounds of Ribbon Rave Challenge over on Savvy N Sassy for a chance to win a year of free ribbon kits ! Well , if you are a scrapper or card makers then you KNOW this is worth more then dollars but more creativity and more playing with extra money to spend on more stamps , more ink and more ribbon ! LOL ! I haven't scrapped much in the past few years as my stamps and cards have more or less taken over my life , my room and my desk !!!

Here are the last 2 layouts I did for Ribbon Rave ....... ( I am posting these for cousin Cherylwho occasionally checks in to see what I have been up too ! Hi Cheryl , hope things are sunny and bright on the Island ! )
By the way , if you click on the photos , they get bigger if you want to look at my ugly mug ... or my journaling  ! LOL !
This was for week #5 and had to be altered ribbon and about yourself ................ bleck ! Not my favorite subject that is for sure ! I even manged to do some hand journaling on here .... something else I am not fond of . To alter the ribbon , I heated it with my heat gun for a very cool effect ..... and you can see what happens when you get heat too close to sheer ribbon .... YUPE ! It melts ! LOL !

So here is week #6

You had to use black and white and only one other color .... make WOW ribbon , journal and add a quote . I am not sure exactly what WOW ribbon is but I did make handmake all the ribbons and then pleated the stipe down the side and again ... used " lightly " heated it with my heat gun just to soften it a bit !......

So this is the last of my scrapping  for awhile as I have cards to get done . I have set up an ETSY store ( see my sidebar ) to one day HOPEFULLY sell a few of these cards that are starting to stack up !

This weekend will see taking the RV out for the first time this season ! See me smiling ? Spring has arrived here and although we were spoiled like crazy last weekend with very warm weather , it has switched again . The cooler weather , snow pellets and rain have started ( so April ! LOL ) but the trees and grass are turning green and the leaves are popping out !!! Unfortunately it will be a very quick weekend as we have to be back here early Sunday morning as DH leaves on a business trip early that afternoon ( see me smiling ? LOL )

Have a great weekend everybody and hope that you find something fun to do out in the great outdoors ! To our friends that are all away because of medical issues ( can you believe 3 of our friends have had surgery out of town in the past 3 weeks in the BIG city ? ) get better , know we are thinking of all of you and remember , the campfire is waiting for you soon !!! This weekend will not be quite the same without you all there !!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Cheryl .......... enjoy your weekend , hugs to you and drop me a line occasionally !!!! LOL !
