About Me

My photo

I am a stay at home mum of one gorgeous 4yr old boy, & he certainly keeps me on my toes. I have crafted in some shape or form all my life, I have always loved to draw & paint & I used to do custom murals, back when I had the time lol. I also crochet & scrapbook, but my biggest passions are card making & doing altered canvases. I have been selling my cards for 3yrs now & my canvases & plaques for about 2yrs. It still gives me a buzz that someone wants to buy something I have created.
I will be posting some examples of my work here but you can see & buy any of my work on my facebook business page, I hope you like it.

Elaine... from Simply Betty

Good evening everyone, I really need to try keep up with my blogging, I just need a few more hours in each day, though I'm sure alot of you can relate to that.
The card I am showing you has been made using a digi stamp from the wonderful Simply Betty, it was given to us on Betty's facebook fan group & the challenge was to use swirls & ribbon.

I have coloured Elaine in shades of turquoise & shades of  orange, & in fact I seem to be colouring alot of images in this colour combo, I love it :) I had no paper in the right shade for the flowers, so I again used my promarker & made up the roses, I wrapped ribbon around a matt which was made from coredinations cardstock, run through a swirly embossing folder & sanded back. I also used some swirly stamps to surround the image.
A close up of the finished image. I had great fun doing this card & I hope you like it. I am also adding it in
Simply Betty challenged challenges for April which is to use embossing folders.
Thanks for looking,
