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 !

Congrats to Matt and Em .... and excuse for some creating

 My nephew and his wife had #3 baby last week . Gabrielle Faith is my sister's fourth grandchild and third grandddaughter ...... she is catching up to us as we have 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson and  she now has 3 granddaugthers and one grandson ( She is older then me though.... my kids just started a whole lot sooner on starting their families ! LOL ) .... anyways , I am thrilled for my sister and her family as they are a very close knit family and another baby just means a little more love to go around ! I wouldn't get to meet the newest member of their kingdom until September when we make the trek down the highway for  a visit .

 Well I finally managed to get in my crappy room and play a bit but it has taken me almost a week to get 2 cards done ! Still have to do the inside of one of these .....

Well being I figure my sister is going for a kingdom of little Princesses I thought I would color up a Fairytale Tilda as a congratulations card to her and her husband ( and it gave me an excuse to use this cutie ! )

I love this Tim Holtz paper stack too as it was perfect for what I had in mind ! Tilda is colored with Copics and then I used Stickles to make her shine and glitter because all little Princesses need some bling !

I love this little Tilda and she is also colored in Copics with a lot of Stickles to make her sparkle !

Have a great week everybody and I hope that I have made you smile with these cards ! I know that one family is beaming just because of Gabby !
