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 !

Random Challenges and just having fun !

 It was a weekend of sitting and playing while DH watched a LOT of football ( both Canadian and American ) and the odd hockey game thrown in to the mix ! Was a great time to disappear into my room and play ! 

Drunken Stamper's challenge #42 challenged everybody to use some sewing on their cards ... I chose to do FAUX stitching as it is a pain to dig my machine out and there is no where in my room to just leave it up ( gives me a good excuse not to do any mending actually ! LOL ) . Here is my card using  a cute Hangler stamp image

I am using this card for my Granddaughter's birthday card next month .... one of 4 birthdays between now and the middle of December I have to make cars for !

I also made a card using this sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge - Challenge #41

I am also submitting it to Totally Tilda #9   Icy Christmas Tilda - Using Blue and Silver

And this is just a fun card I made for our Grandson .... I love this image of Edwin as we have all been there with Christmas lights ! LOL !

Thanks for looking and Happy creating ! Winter is making an appearence here so that means I may be stuck in playing a WHOLE lot .... oh DARN !!!!! NOT !!!! ROFLMAO !!!
