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 # 68

Sweet Sketch Wednesday  had a wonderful sketch this week and I managed to find some time to sit and play with it ! I am really beginning to love working from a sketch for my cards as it gives me a starting point for my brain ! Thanks to all the wonderful artists that come up with them !

Here is my take on this week's sketch

 I love Mo Manning images as you can tell ! They just make me smile ! That poor cat ! We have had a few that have been loved like this over the years ! LOL !

 Image is colored with Copic markers and I handmade the flower out of piece of wide lace then spritzed with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist then  edges some of the " petals " with Stickles .....

Sorry for the unclear photos today but my camera is not behaving properly !

Thanks for looking and happy creating !


  1. I do love your card, I adore your image yes I see that happening daily in our house as well also draped over their shoulders like a fur collar but the cats seem to love it they don't complain. I adore your colours and design papers you've used they all go so well together love that green. This is a great sketch of Arlana's to work with and she has a new one every Wednesday.
