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 !

 My friend Lisa found this awesome card sketch challenge blog and being I need to get a few cards done over the next couple weeks , I thought it would be the perfect time to join in the fun over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday . This week is a great little sketch found here.....

This is the card that I made this morning ( I am supposed to be packing to head to the RV so I need to get moving out of my room NOW ! LOL )

This is a birthday card for my son who turned 30 yesterday .... but we wouldn't see him for a couple more days so I am safe at being late ! LOL ! This is a image by Lili OF the Valley out of the U.K. ! So my son ! LOL ! He is colored with Copic markers and the patterned paper is from BG Max and Whisker's paper pad ! Buttons from my stash and Martha Stewart butcher thread .

Well TFL and have a great weekend !Now I had best get busy as I only have an hour before DH arrives home ! OOPS !
