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 !

Tilda with a Balloon

 Magnolia's Tilda was the perfect choice to use on a multi-challenge card that I made today . With DH home ill I have had lots of time to play .

I am entering her here on The Outlawz Birthday challenge which is to make a birthday card with sentiment and wings or butterflies . I found these Heidi Swapp felt butterflies on my Clip-It Up ( and who knows how long they have been hanging on it ! LOL ) I then covered the butterflies with Stardust Stickles .

 Arlanda over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday #88 has the perfect sketch found here

And I am also entering it to Just Magnolia - Hangler Challenge Blog  #92 Anything Goes - with ribbons found here

And here is my card !

I used Kaiser Craft Candy Lane paper , ribbon , flower , twine  and pearls from my stash ! Tilda is colored with Copic markers and is highlighted with Stardust Stickles and the balloon is covered with Martha Steward glittter ( thanks Eulanda for the bottle ! ) . Sentiment is by Verve`

Come join all these great challenge blogs and have fun creating !
