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 !

A little creating and a surprise visitor !

 Honest , I have managed to get in my room a bit this last week as I had to get a birthday card and a Mother's Day card done . My oldest had his 37th birthday on April 27th ! Wow , I am just in shock when I stop and figure out how OLD I am then !!! All I can say is I am so happy I had my kids long before I was 30 ......... like a long ways before ! LOL ! My son is an avid outdoor's man and would love nothing better to be fishing or stomping through the bush with either his camera , his gun or his crossbow . I thought this was a cute image so whipped him up a card from this SU stamp .

It was a very simple , quick card as I had to get it done before they popped in that night ! LOL ! Yes , I left it until the last minute !

I did get my Mother a card done and in the mail today for Mother's Day . i love this Magnolia's Tilda with Butterfly !

 OUTSIDE of card .......
INSIDE of card ..... I just loved this paper by KaiserCraft's Magic Happens Collection ! I just added a stamped sentiment and it finished off the interior of the card just perfect !


The other night my husband was sitting on his favorite chair watching a hockey game when he looked up and said something was coming through the trees just off our deck on the bank . We figured it would be Mr BEAR as he has been around but instead through the bush wandered MR MANGY MOOSE ! He decided to trim some of the new growth off our bushes and was quit content to stand on the bank and eat like he didn't have a care in the world . Unfortunately it was dusk out so my photos aren't great but I was actually standing on my deck not far from him snapping photos ! Not sure who is crazier , him for being in a residencial area or me for tempting fate and standing out there taking the photos ! LOL !

I lightened some of these photos as you couldn't see Mr Moose ! DH said the moose is about a year old and went through a very long , hard winter as he was skinny and very mangy ( as you can see by the last photo ..... his fur is just hanging in clumps ) . After about 45 minutes of eating he wandered off and hasn't been back ! I <3 living up North as you never now WHAT is going to arrive in your yard !!!!

Have a great week , happy crafting and hope you all see sun and no crazy weather in your area !
