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 !

I am back to my craft table !

After a fun filled , camping season it was time to winterize the RV and think about staying home ... and staying home means I actually got to sit in my crappy room and get to play ! As my oldest granddaughter turns 15 on Sunday I had to get a card made for her . I never try to combine challenges as I find it a challenge just doing a card for each site if I can but this one just happened to fit the bill for both these sites so I am entering my card on both of them !

Thanks to the sketch found  here on Sunday Sketch Challenge #37 I created this card . And although you can't see the pattern on this paper ( under the lace looking paper ) it has a GRID patterned and is a beautiful paper that comes from BG's ORIGINS 6"X6" paper pad ! The GRID paper fits in with THIS challenge on Spectacular Sunday Challenge # 77

 So much  fun to use my Copics and my Magnolia's again and the new release of the Spellbinders Nesties just made me happy ! Unfortunately my rose ribbon doesn't show up very well in the photo and because it was a small section it really doesn't do the ribbon justice either :-(   ...................... oh well lesson learned !!! !

Hope everybody has a wonderful crafty week ! Courteney , have a wonderful 15th birthday but don't have too much fun either ! LOL ! Love you Baby Girl !
