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 !

Challenges and cards off the list ....... YEAH !

 I have birthday cards and Christmas cards to get done ...... it is  crazy early part of late November / December .... but I have faith I will accomplish all of them !

 Cute Card Thursday challenge #139 - SKETCH  had this great sketch that I decided to use for my SIL's birthday card . i used one of the new releases by Sparkles Stamps ... so perfect for this one !

This is the inside of the card using the new Sizzix big die for gift cards ... it actually stands up when you open the card to reveal a gift card !

I also decided that I needed to use this cute Magnolia stamp for a Christmas card  using the challenge on....
