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 !

The result of being housebound ...................

 My cold is almost gone , the snow is holding off for the day and even the temperature is livable for now ( -6 C ) ......... and I have a very sick husband ! Just a flare-up for Crohn's Disease but this one has laid him flat for a number of days . Well when I start feeling housebound with a sick husband , I find I do one of 2 things ..... overeat or go to my room and create .............. ( aside from getting extremely cranky ! LOL ) . I have managed to hide in my room a LOT for the past few days and am managing to get a few cards made . I am also making a LOT of homemade soups this week ! A couple servings fresh out of the pot and then the rest in the freezer ! I love that !!!

Here are a couple of the cards I have made that may or may not have been added to a challenge blog somewhere !

This is a Hangler image and I do believe I added it to The Outlawz challenge of other mediums then Copic markers . I actually dusted off my watercolor pencils and blender pen to do this one ! The paper is BG Hopscoth and the swirls are a die from Maryanne Designs out of the UK .... everything else is from my stash .

And here is something a little different from me for the CAS ( Clean and Simple ) challenge on The Outlawz

I actually used a Tattered Angel tree mask then used my Tim Holtz blending tool and brown Momento ink to creat this image ..... added a touch of white Sakura Gell pen for effect . The sentiment is by Verve` Stamps . I love their sentiments . Again , I just lightly used my blendinf tool with the Nestie die still in place . Pearls are by Kaiser Craft .....

And this card was made for something .... can't remember what though ! LOL !

Oh yeah , it was for the sketch challenge over on The Outlawz ! LOL !

 Expect to see a couple more cards from me in the next few days as it could be a longggggggg week .... especally being we are expecting MORE snow after the 10" we got dumped on the weekend ( and that is to add to the 3.5' we already have - and that was after our January thaw ! Bleck winter can just leave now ! LOL )

Enjoy your week and happy creating ! 


  1. I'm sorry you are snowbound, and especially that your husband is down ... is he a good patient or a man (a Big Baby?). ho ho

    Still, I suppose it's all been a good thing as you're creating lots of beautiful stuff here!
