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 !

  First off , please excuse the blurring image of my card ! Seems that my favorite digital camera is having issues so I think I know what I will be asking from Santa ! As I have already replace the laptop and the memory card I am going to have to admit it HAS to be my camera !!!! I <3 my camera ! It is a small little Canon PowerShot Elph and has taken some amazing photos for me ! Just a great little tuck in the pocket and go camera !

 However , this isn't about my camera but a great challenge blog that I used to faithfully enter my cards into ! I am hoping to get back into my room a LOT more ( and get off the laptop ! ) so thought I would join in at Magnolia Down Under this week for their CHARM & BLING challenge ! The challenge can be found here . I used this cute Tilda from the new release as she is so adorable !!!! The bling is all over the card .... her dress , colored with Copic markers then painted with STARDUST STICKLES and the charm is attached to the lace on the sentiment .

 Winter is also making an appearance here so the light was NOT great for taking photos !!!

 Here is another card I whipped together using a Magnolia image . I am not entering it in the challenge but wanted to show you what else I have been doing ! Haven't spent a LOT of time in my Crappy ( craft ) room as I finished a crocheted shawl for the neighbor and have another couple projects being hooked ...... some days there just aren't enough hours in the day - especially when the spouse needs to eat ! LOL !

Have a great week everybody and I hope you all find some time to craft and relax !!!

TFL !!!
