About me

Hi every one, I'm Christine welcome to my blog, On Splitcoaststampers I'm calex.  I've been making cards for about 9 years and every year I get a tiny bit better, or perhaps developed more of my own style.  My passion is card making and love CAS and Mixed media, so when you combine the two I;m in card making heaven.
At home I  have my husband of 25 years and my 2 dogs.  We decided that 2 dogs are better than one especially if they are golden retrievers.
Meet Dylan (the name comes from Dylan Thomeas the Welsh Poet, yes I'm Welsh) who's 3 yers old  and Tika (who comes from Tikka Massala (kennel name Redgold hot and spice for her kennel name) and is 12 weeks as of November 7th 2016
IRL I am a Radiation Therapist at the Vancouver Cancer Centre, I have spent my whole life in heath care and love working with people, having said that I have 4 years before I retire and am looking forward to spending more time on my cards and with my dogs.


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! You are so lucky to have these beautiful dogs and one is a puppy, no less! We used to have a Golden named Ginger and she was the sweetest of many dogs we have had! Enjoy!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Hi Christine. My hubby and I are from Ottawa. Now living in South East Florida, love your dogs, we have a rescue named Gunnar that we thought was a Golden Retriever but after DNA testing he is actually mostly Great Pyr with some Chow. He is a big gentle giant though.
