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 !

oh so Blue ..............

Magnolia Stamp Lover's has a challenge running this week called " BLUES " ! This little Tilda stamp just called out for the color blue . The challenge is listed here .

I used a lot of Sakura Glaze pen on my image to give her umbrella and boots a wet look . I purposely took the second photo under a light so you could see the shine !

I am also using this card for Sketch Saturday as I used Jilli's sketch to make the card . Here is the sketch

Join in the fun this week for  Week #136 Challenge on Sketch Saturday here
