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 !

 Well it seems to come once a year whether you want it to happen or not . DH had a birthday . It has been a rather strange year for him as he hit a few milestones . First he retired ( a few years sooner then he would have liked to but with health issues it was for the best ! ) and then he had to come to grips with being retired . Not an easy feat for somebody that has spent the majority of his life working long hours and a bit of a work-acholic ! It has been a challenge for both of us :-) Summer was no problem as we spent the majority of it at the campground where he could visit people and walk the dogs . After the RV was put away for the winter then things got a little more challenging as the guy has no hobbies . Thank heavens his TV is downstairs and he disappears most afternoons to watch the tube and his sports .

 I saw this image by Doctor Digi House of Stamps that I thought was just PERFECT for him . It reminds me of him so much .... although he would have at least 2 of the 3 Yorkies on his lap !

 I colored this image in Copic markers and used a Tim Holtz die cut for the clock . Such a fun image to work with .

 Time to get back to craft table ... only 2 more birthday cards to get done by next week and I am so far behind on my Christmas cards that I might get done by next week ! LOL !

Thanks for stopping by !

 Have a great week and happy creating !
