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 !

Challenges galore !

Even though I stressed that I usually try to do challenge blogs one at a time , I have discovered it is really fun to combined a FEW and see what becomes of the result . By taking the sketch from here on Sketch Saturday Challenge Week 122  Blog , this challenge from Magnolia Stamp Lovers : Add a touch of lace  and combining it with the challenge from here on Totally Tilda challenge Blog ( and you know how I love Tilda ! ) which this week the challenge was Glitter and Sparkle this is the card I came up with !

 I love this Magnolia Tilda image and she was so much fun to color with my Copic markers and the background was softly airbrushed . I also used my Sakura glaze pen on her shoes and my Sakura Stardust pen for the lace of her dress and the umbrella handle ...... the ribs were colored with my Sakura white gel pen  . The dress was then covered with Ice Stickles as were her socks and the top of the umbrella ( or parasol ) . The roses were also coated with glaze pen to give them a bit of depth ! Tim Holtz patterned paper and distressed Ink were used and a CTMH sentiment finished off my card .......... after punching an edge with my Martha Stewart edge punch and some airbrushed lace and flower to which some Stickles had been added . Glitter was added to the corner piece of chipboard .

Here are the Copics I used to color Tilda with

Happy creating and I hope my card brought a smile to your face ! Thanks for taking the time to look !
