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 !

Are we having fun yet ?

 We just spent 9 days in the RV camped in our favorite spot and have left the RV " planted " down there for at least 6 weeks until DH gets holidays ( though he as a salmon fishing trip in June out of Prince Rupert he is taking ! ) and we can actually go somewhere ( depending on how he feels though :-(

 Weather was a typical May in this country ... a little good and and a lot bad ! LOL ! At least we didn't get the snow that parts of PG and Northern areas got on Friday ! Dang wind was COLD though and not nice for sitting outside for the end of the week . Think we only had one campfire the whole time we were away ..... but that may have had something to do with the satellite being hooked up and hockey and a hunting channel to watch ! But then those pesky mosquitos loved me in the evening too .................. All in all , the week was relaxing . By Friday the campground had filled up and there were people and dogs everywhere .... still pretty quiet considering ! Sunday morning we decided to head home a day early ( long weekend here ) as DH wanted to wash his truck and mow the lawn . I had laundry to do and groceries to get so didn't mind .........

 I did manage to color a few images while we away and here is a card I threw together this yesterday with one of the images that just cracked me up . She is by Mo Manning ( Stampavie ) and I colored her with Copic markers  .....

It is hard to see but I added Stickles ( sparkle glitter ) to her wings and on the lowers pedals . The cardstock is GEMSTONES by Co-ordinates and has a shin to it , the patterned paper is from Tim Holtz paper stack . Te velvet ribbon from Savvyn'Sassy ribbon kit and the flower from Michael's .

And here is a card I put together for our friends that are having their 40th anniversary this week

This is another Mo Manning image colored with Copics , distressed with Distressed ink and some Webster's Pages trim on BG KIOSH patterned paper . The flower is by Magnolia .

Well time to clean some pollen out of my house and clean my craft table up so I can actually find the top of it ( so I can make it messy again ! LOL )

Have a wonderful week and happy creating !
