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 !

Two Posts in one day ....... and a card !

 Well today just felt like it should be an inside day as the snow was coming down in big , wet flakes . I had nowhere pressing to go so just stayed home and caught up on some much needed housework . Those dustbunnies were starting to multiply and I figured I would have a mutiny on my hands if something didn't get done about them ! I also found a lot of time to sit in my room and do some coloring and put together a card . This one went together quickly thanks to these 2 challenges ! I used the sketch challenge  from Arlana over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday #87 found here .
This is the sketch I used

A combined it with the Color Challenge over on THE OUTLAWZ  found here
using Celadon ( green ) , Lavender and White ... include polka dots .......

here is my take this week on both challenges . I dug deep in my stash of patterned papers for these papers !

Copic markers , Magnolia's Tilda with Big Bow , Making Memories patterned Paper  ,Peggy's Pretties , SU cardstock , large brad , ribbon  and flowers all from stash .... and a Ellen Hutson paper doily with a Nesties diecut finish my card .

Come on over to these blogs and join in the fun !

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY DRUNKEN STAMPERS .... this card is for you !
