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 !

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #129-133

  I  managed to sit at my desk this past week and do some cards . With 5 birthdays before the middle of December I didn't have much choice and being I am heading down to the daughters and need 3 of the cards I just had to bite the bullet and get at it !

Arlana over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday helped me along with this card for Granddaughter #2 . This sketch can be found here . I LOVE Arlana's sketches as they are always fun to use ! I will be adding this card to her site ! Come join the fun !

  This card I made for my husband whose birthday is a couple days past . This is a digital image I bought from somewhere ( sorry don't remember where  OOPS ! ) . He is seriously debating about whether to retiring next year so this  sentiment is fitting !
 This last card is for our SIL who turns 40 next week ! I love this image by Lilli of the Valley !!! I think this is more what SIL would like to do about turning 40 !!! LOL ! I used glaze for the water though it doesn't show up very well !

 Time to return to my dek and get a couple more cards done ! Then I still have some Christmas cards to work on ..... guess I shuld put down the crochet hook and get busy !!!

 Have a great week everybody and happy creating !!!

GREAT image and love the sentiment you use for hubby. hee hee AND great take on the sketch too. WOW well done! How hard is that to work on bday cards instead of xmas.
