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 !

 It is hard to believe that our youngest grandchild is 6 years old on Tuesday ! The year has gone by so quickly but at least with the move we have been able to see him more often and watched the changes that this age brings . He is kindergarten this year so has really developed a personality ...... some habits which are so " boy " ( yes , I did say that ! LOL ! ) .... nice considering he has 2 older sisters ! The kid is a whiz on his IPAD and can figure out most words on his own . No spelling around this kid any more as he knows exactly what you are trying to say !

 I found this image in my box and I am not sure how I got it as it is a Hangler .......... but he is oh so cute and was just calling me to make him up . I used Copic markers to color him and I have to say , this card came together so fast for me from start to finish . I know he will like it ........ and the inside of the card was just a printed sheet of paper and just a couple stickers of dogs that I got given to me from Santa ! Nice to use so stash up !

 I must get busy now as I have a card I have to get off today for my BIL's birthday . Thank heavens I have the image already colored as I feel like I have lost a few days this past week !

 Have a great week everybody and happy creating ....... even if it is just reading a book and creating in your mind ! LOL !

Thinking of you ....


  The sun is shining , the snow is melting and the trees actually have a pale green color to them . I am not holding my breath that Spring may be on it's way but I am sure hoping . It has been a LONG winter here ........ more with the move so close to when the snow fell I think ! Anyways , I will be happy to see green grass and be able to sit outside , whether here or whether somewhere camping .

 I finally sat at my desk and put together a card . Nothing fancy but it seemed to take me forever to do . I have just tucked this little swinger in the mail to send to a friend who's birthday is today .... and yes , it will  be belated birthday wishes to her ! I am having trouble actually getting on a regimented schedule since DH is home 24/7 . We have lived on schedules for 40 years but for some reason that isn't happening much lately ! Guess that is what " retirement " is all about though .

 I have had this Magnolia stamp forever and finally inked her up ......... amazing how many stamps I have that have never even seen ink on them !!  I am going to try remedy that in the next little while as I have a few anniversary and birthdays over the next while . My Copics definitely need a workout and I need to do some practicing with them as I am a bit rusty . I actually have an image all colored and ready to put a card together with . Stay tuned as it shouldn't be long before that has to be done !

 Have a great week everybody and happy creating !
