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 !

Halloween !

I don't usually make halloween cards but I have a friend that always sends me one so I though this year I would actually get busy and make her one ! Of course the week I had planned on getting it done and in the mail , I ended fighting this silly Fall cold ! I haven't had one for 2 years so this one is hanging on making my life miserable ! So much for the vitamins I have added into my regiment for warding off these things ! LOL ! Oh well , I did get the card done and it will probably arrive late but that is okay as it is the thought that counts , right ? Lol !

 I used the sketch from the challenge on Sweet Sketch Wedneday

 Unfortunately , my background paper stuck before I could adjust it so I used a bit of creative license on it .... but all the elements are there !  I am also adding my card to Totally Tilda's Halloween Special Challenge  and to  Drunken Stamper's - Halloween challenge #39   ( hello ladies ! ) .

  Have a safe and fun Hallween everybody ! I wouldn't be trick-or-treating at my house this year as I am treating  myself to a concert ... REBA is in town and a friend and I are going to enjoy her concert !

 Happy creating and TFL !
