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 # 73 and Top 3 !

 I am super excited about making Top 3 last week   ( and proud to show off the blinkie on my sidebar ) over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday so when I saw the nice sketch this week I just had to play along again !

Such a fun sketch to work with and with some pretty DP from BG " Jovial " some lace and those wonderful Prima poinseittas ( that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist ) and some lace and velvet ribbon from Sassy n Savvy made a quick card with this cute image from Balmarmarna !

This cute little guy was colored with my Copics then given texture by using the rag tecnique ( Blender pen fluid on toweling then dabbed over the sweater image and hat ! Gives a wool look ! )

Thanks for looking and pop over to Sweet Sketch wednesday and come play !

Have a great weekend everybody and happy creating !
