About Me

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 Outlawz ... Masculine card

 Monday's Greeting card card challenge on The Outlawz was for a masculine card . I had just purchased this Penny Johnson stamp and thought it was perfect for this challenge and was more then happy to ink it up ! The paper and ribbon was from a blog win from Eulanda ( thanks ! ) and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley  stamp ( I LOVE their stamps ! ) . Copic markers colored the images and the background of the sentiment and were used on the image ! I do love my Copics ! Mementos Ink was used forall stamping .
Here is my take on this challenge ...

And here are my breakfast visitors this morning !

Pilated woodpecker on my feeder on my deck . Guess he thought he should come join me while I drank my morning coffee !

And this is Mr ( or maybe it is Mrs ) Squirrel sitting in a tree eating a peanut that my neighbour puts out for him / her every day ! He is a pest though as he / she torments my dogs and makes them bark !!!!

And he/she hides peanuts in the robin's nest in my lilac bush just beside my deck ! Silly Squirrel !!!
Have a good week everybody  ! Hope the weather is more Springlike for you ( some areas around here are getting MORE snow ! ) ... We are having SUN and our snow is finally starting to melt .... only about 4' left to go in the backyard and about 10' in the snowbanks at the front  ! LOL !
Happy creating and come join in the fun on The Outlawz !
