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 !

Arlana has another fabulous sketch posted for week 89 on Sweet Skeych Wednesday Blog found here . This is her fabulous sketch

And here is my card ! I just love Tilda with tiny bows on the vintage sofa ( both from Magnolia ) . I masked Tilda and then stamped the couch . My flower is from Tim Holtz Tattered flower die and I used matching DP and netting with a backing of Webster's Pages pleated ribbon with bead spray  with a small prima flower colored with Copic to match and a gem brad to hold it all together. The glittery metal ribbon is also from Webster's Pages ,

Hop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and come play ! Happy creating !
