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 !

snowy weekend ... great time to play !

This is what we have had coming down all weekend ..........

Looking out my front window which is about 7' off the ground . The grader had just done a run down tthe road ....
Looking out my bedroom window ........ that is my 4' retaining wall you now can not see .... thank heavens we had a January melt and lost about 2-3' of snowpack !!!

It is a snowy weekend .... a good time to create and a good time to wish Spring was here !!! Creating these cards helped though !

The first card is being entered into SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY that was made with another awesome sketch by Arlana . It can be found HERE  . Here is my take on the sketch

And this card is being entered over on  JUST MAGNOLIA - Hangler Sketch challenge 95  ... a sketch challenge from Mina found HERE . And  here is my take on this sketch !

Have a great week , happy creating and hopefully you are seeing SPRING where you live !

  7. I just wish the snow would melt and the temp would rise just a bit even here in the northwest. This is the first time I have had to try to save my spring flowers, primroses, tulips...I have had to bring in my pots of flowers for several day now. Looks like after tomorrow night it will be safe to leave them outside again. Both of your cards are adorable. What a fabulous job you have done on your coloring. Thanks for playing along at SSW!

    I live in Auckland New Zealand and we never get snow like this here as it's too warm, we have to go to parts of the South Island or to the mountains.

  10. Beautiful cards. Your colouring is fab & I love the embellishments. Your snow pics are fab too, I love snow but we don't get much here in Northern Ireland, can I come live in your garage please lol :) Thanks so much for joining us this week @ SSW.
