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 !

Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 65 and a HUGE Happy Anniversary !

  I am late getting this card done ( due to more holidays :-)   so I chose the awesome sketch over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #65 to make it as it worked just fantastic for what I wanted to do ! Here is my card that I made ... with a whole lot of love inside and I will hand deliver it next week to my parents as they celebrated their 59th Wedding Anniversary on August 31st ! I told you it would be late ! LOL !

This Mo Manning image called " Young Love "  was exactly what I was looking for ! It is so hard to find a sweet , elderly couple image . Ma is a little sassy with her bright pink slip hanging out of her skirt .... you are never too old for sassy ! LOL !

 I used a whole handful of Copic markers to color the image . Used some BG patterned paper , Prima flower and some great ribbon from a Savvy N' Sassy ribbon kit !

 Happy Anniversary Dad & Mom and will see you both soon !
