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 !

Fall is in the air

Even with the Fall migraines hitting with a vengence , I managed to finish up this card that I started yesterday ! It seems to be taking me longer to make a card lately but I am so happy with the results of this one that I am submitting for 3 Challenge blogs

Drunken Stampers #35 Salute to Fall           It's been awhile since I got to play with these gals but hopefully life is slowly slowing down so I can play more with them being I did a DT stint with them ! I haven't forgotten any of you ~ really ! LOL !

Stamptacular Sunday challenge #78 .... Season's change    Using all Fall colors ! I think I covered this with all my FAll-ish colors


Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 69    Another awesome sketch ladies ! I have flipped this sketch ... a little creative license used ! LOL !

 I have used a new Magnolia release from the Autumn Cozy Family images ( seems these are going under more then one name as I check the internet ! ) called Brother and Sister .
The paper is from the Imaginisce APPLE CIDER collection
Prima leaves and other goodies
Ribbon from my stash and of course I used Copics to color my image .

Thanks for looking and happy creating ! Come join in the fun on all these wonderful blogs ! You never know what you may come up with !
