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 !

The Outlawz - Western challenges

 The " contest " is over but I am happy to say I did win something for a change ... actually I won 2 things ! A GC for Whimsy Stamps and some digi images from Di's Digi Downloads ...... Whoo hoo !

So over on Outlawz this month they are offering a chance at winning a $50 GC to Oozak ...... Oh how I would LOVE to win that one ! Once a week for each challenge you are allowed to link one card or scrap page or altered item into Mr Linky ( when Mr Green Frog feels like working as he is a bit shy and disappears ..... often ! He is a challenge just of his own ! LOL )

 My first link will be for this card for the sketch challenge ( tag SC0302 ).  This is the first time I have inked up these Stampin' Up stamps and I have had them FOREVER !!!! OOPS ! I did a quick color of them with my Copics . The ribbon came from my stash and I have no idea where it even came from ... I think it must have just grown in my ribbon box ! LOL  !

Here is a couple more cards I made over the past couple days ( yes , it is still cold and snowing here so I am hiding inside ! )

This was for Monday's Birthday challenge using one circle ( the sentiment is a circle and a sticker ! )

 This was for Sundays CAS card ( clean and simple ) challenge which was a sketch . The sentiment and coffee mug is from Verve` stamps .... I love this set !

And this last card is the for the challenge where we can use any medium but Copic markers and a punch . I stamped the image on watercolor paper and then used my TH Distressed Inks and " watercolored " the image with them . My grass and tulip row were both punched with Martha Stewart punches and the tulips were colored with a Sakura glaze pen !
The last 3 cards can't be entered into Mr Linky because they were made in February ! So there will be more to come !

Come join the fun on the OUTLAWZ !!!
