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 !

This Week for The OUTLAWZ .....

 I have spent days just trying to get my cards ready for a couple challenges ...... seems my brain has been on a malfunction for days and Murpy's Law has ruled - AGAIN !!!! I have managed to crank out two cards for this week so far with a few mishaps ( like my electric Big Shot getting jammed because I was trying to something and had tried to force to much through the rollers !!!! Not much fun trying to unstick the dang thing either ! )

Tuesday's Color Challenge was to use 3 shades of green ... and glitter ! Well I did manage to find 3 greens that didn't look too bad together and came up with this card . The image is my Mo Manning . My Glitter is on there just not a lot of it ! LOL !

My little fairy is colored with Copics and my sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp with a Nesties backround ( as is the baby fairy ) . I used Momento Ink for the sentiment . The fairy's wings are Stickles Diamond Glitter as is the lace trim on her clothes .

On Wednesday on The Outlawz it is SKETCH day ! Great sketch to play with ladies ! This is image is by Lili of the Valley as is the sentiment and again she is colored with Copics . The paper is by KaiserKraft and is a new release but at the moment can't remember it's name but it gorgeous IRL !!

The fairy's wings are painted with SMOOCH pearl as is her skirt . It actually shimmers IRL . Stickles diamond glitter is on the purple of her skirt and the flowers in her hair .
 As I said , Murphy's Law has ruled today .......

Happy creating and come join the fun on The Outlawz !


  1. Awwww these are both so cute!! I really like you glitter on those wings. So cute! And did blogger flip/rotate your picture on you? Mine did that and the only way I could fix it was to take a new picture and upload it again. So weird! I really like your sentiments!! CUTE! Murphy's law - you're a member too?!! High five!

  2. Yupe .... Murphy's Law on that photo being rotated ! LOL ! I thought I would just leave it and not tempt fate - again ! LOL ! Definitely a old memeber of the Murphy's Law club !!! LOL !
