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 !

GETTING CREATIVE ........... finally !

 DH left this morning for a week away with the " boys " . It was snowing when he left and it ended up a very wet , dreary day . The perfect day to kick back , relax and finish up a couple cards that I have been working on . I have 4 birthday cards to be made before the middle of December ... and about a half dozen Christmas cards . I have decided that this year I am only doing homemade cards for people that actually appreciate them . I spend way to much time creating them to have them end up in the garbage can . I am so enjoying playing again and making a huge mess of my room ! I have a week that I don't have to worry about making meals or anything else .... it is just me and the animals ! LOL !

  This card has been made for my Granddaughter who turns 17 soon . The image is by Saturated Canary and I colored her with Copic markers then used lots of Stickles on the card in different spots . The doilies are distressed with TH Distressed Inks .

Some close-ups of the card .

And this is the first Christmas card finished . I had some premade card blanks that I bought on clearance at MICHAEL'S a few years ago . Think they will work great for these cute dies ! Magnolia's Tilda works so well with the tree ! She is colored with Copic markers and then some SNOW puff on the snow that is then highlighted with Stickles .

 Stickles have been highly used all over the card !

 Pop back later in the week as I hope to have more cards made and ready for posting . So much fun to be back !!!

 Have a GREAT weekend .... I plan on it with my crafting a few new novels I am happy to kick back and read . The animals are content to kick back with me .... 3 Yorkies curled up on the couch ( 2 under a blanket ) and the cat is flopped on her " pillow " sound asleep too !
