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 !

Drunken Stampers Challenge 21 .... BLING

 Over on Drunken Stampers this week's challenge is to add sparkly bling to your card . Well it has been far too long since I got to finish a card for here so with this week's challenge ( read about it here ) I knew I could join in as it is granddaughter #3 's 11th Birthday . I had just got this cute stamp from a new stamp company called Simply Betty and I just had to play !  With a lot of help from my Stickles ( Stardust and Crystal ) I added some sparkly bling to her hair , shoes and flowers plus edged my papers with it ! as usual my image was colored with my Copic markers ( unfortunately another photo not taken of them ! ) . Ribbon is from SavvynSassy ribbon kits , Martha Stewart punch was used and the DP is from my stash .... it too is very glittery !

Have a great week everybody and Happy Crafting !
