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 !

Grandkids and cards

 I did up a few cards to give my grandkids being they are all finished school until September .... and all will be moving on to the next grade ! When I asked our Grandson Aidan ( he is 3 ) if he graduated high school yet , he promptly told me NO ..... then I asked him if he graduated kindergarten and again he said NO so when I asked him if he graduated play school he just smiled and asked me what was in the bag I was holding ! Boy , does he have this Grandma figured out ! He didn't get a card but he got spoiled rotten with a couple Toy Story movies , some Toy Story ginch and a t-shirt with Toy Story ! Move over Diego , Buzz and Woody are moving in ! LOL !

My grandgirls are all growing up far too fast ! Cory's daughter Courteney goes into Grade 10 this year and will be spending the summer in volleyball camps all over the place ! Holly's girls are going into Grade 9 and Grade 6 ........ and the little man will be going into pre-school :-) Jared's Daughter will be in Grade 3 but she will always be a baby in our minds as we don't have contact with her .......... not our choice for sure but some day she will be of age where she will be able to make her own decisions .

( hmmm , for some reason he doesn't want to stand properly ! Honestly , he isn't sideways all the time ! )
Anyways , here is what I did for the girls for passing . Of course these came with a little monetary fun inside ! Girls love to shop , right ? LOL !

These are all from the SIMPLY BETTY stamp collection , colored with Copics and dazzled with Stickles !

Hope everybody has a wonderful summer , gets some fun time and manages to get some creating in too ! We will be away off and on most of the summer in the RV .... no real set plans yet .... just going to do some wandering on wheels and just go where the road takes us .......... and the money ! LOL !
