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 !

Drunken Stamper's Challenge of the week ... and an announcement

Here is my take on this week's challenge .... USE YOUR SCRAPS 

 This week over on  Drunken Stamper's the challenge is to use scraps of paper for your card . I personally have a large wicker basket overflowing with pieces of leftover paper so this was a fun and easy challenge to do ! The stamp is from Greeting Farms and I love the look on Anya's face ! Pretty much ays what I think of laundry ! She is colored with Copic markers . The card was all leftovers scraps and I even found some ribbon and brads thrown in the bottom of the basket so I used them too ... I don't know HOW they got in there either ! LOL ! Flowers are Prima and old stash ... think I have had them FOREVER !!! The red cardstock was run through my Cuttlebug with the Argyl embossing folder . And my favorite white gell pen ( Sakura White gell pen ) was used to finish off the card ( I can sew just don't have room to put my machine up anywhere  ! ) . Pop on over to Drunken Stampers and join in the fun ! It is a lot of fun and gets the mojo goig .

 And now the challenge is posted I want to thank Peggy and Spike ( Aileen ) for having me on their DT . It has been a blast and definitely had me think outside my box on more then one occasion . With that being said , I can imagine you have figured out this is my last week of DT with Drunken Stampers as I have stepped down from the position . When I took it I had told Peggy and Spike that I would be thrilled to do the job and would give as much input as I could but once camping season starts then I would not be able to commit myself to the DT . Well camping season started a LOT earlier for us this year with the early Spring and now the RV is packed and ready to roll ! I will still be around and hope to participate in the challenges when I can . I am not sure what they have planned to fill the position but pop on over to the blog and see ... join in , have fun and mosting

 Happy Creating ! Thanks again ladies for the opportunity to create and thanks to everybody for popping onto my blog to see what I have been up to ..... stay tuned I am not finished creating by a long shot as I have my Copics packed , some stamps and my paper !!!!!
