Retro Sketches 96 Challenge Card and FUNNY crafts (?) photo

I’m in my “Happy Little Place” when I create, and when I get to create with my sister Nina and my Sister in Law Judy at the same time, well its all the sweeter.  What a nice way to start the year.  Here’s the Retro Sketches #96 challenge they invited me to:

I decided to make my card like this:



Image - Graphics Fairy

Markers - TomBow

Micron Archival Pen


Designer Paper - Nature Garden Collection by JoDie Lee Designs

Golden twine

Pearl accents




I had a set of TomBow markers on my Christmas Wish list and was so happy that my Mr “GOT IT” that these to me would be as cherished to me as a piece of new technology would be to him.  I’ve wanted these for a long long time.  So, now its getting used to them. 

I ♥ all the images at Graphics Fairy - I print them onto fine art paper and they are crisp and beautiful, then I color and “fussy cut” them with sharp scissors.  I must say the TomBow markers are beautiful - just takes some getting used to blending etc.  

Thanks a heap for visiting! 


Seen downtown Osoyoos recently:


Ok… I consider myself an extreme crafter, but THIS?   Wow.  What can one say?  My mind begs the question - is the lovely crochet keeping the bike rack warm?  Is it to buffer a bike or pet leashed to it?  Is it just to prettify things up on our main street.  At any rate, I’m impressed haha!


  1. love the dress you and the tombow did an awesome job...glad you got spoilt you deserve it .It was fun all of us carding and doing challenges...can't wait to do it again. Thanks for sharing.


  2. What a lovely card Barb, you have mastered your new Tombow markers. I love mine but admit to not using them enought and now you have inspired me.I love that us gals were able to chat online and create at the same time.

  3. Good morning Barb:)
