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.

Just Inspirational Challenges :)


Good Morning everyone & welcome, it's time for another challenge from 
& this week is the turn of 
Team B


This week our sponsor is the wonderful
who are offering a prize of 4 digi images to the lucky winner

Here is this week's photo
& we would like you to interpret the photo however you like, be it the image itself, the colours, shape etc.

So here is my make:
 Having seen the inspirational photo & being Irish I had to have the gorgeous
Celtic Fairy
 to work with & she was kindly given by our sponsor.

The backing paper is from a craft cd & I over stamped it with a distress stamp (from Sheena Douglas)
I then created the layers, using the same stamp set, can you tell it's my new favourite lol :)
The cogs ,from Creative Expressions, have been stamped & heat embossed around the heart. I finished this off with 2 stamped wings, which I curled to give dimension before sticking them down & adding the gem.
I then assembled the card & added some handmade roses

 She has been coloured in promarkers & cut out, isn't she gorgeous

Another view of the heart with the cute wings.
This style is totally different for me, but I really enjoyed doing it & I was happy with how she turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to visit my teamies (links in the right sidebar) & pop by Just Inspirational Challenges to enter, I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

Creative Creations Challenges

Good morning everyone & thanks so much for visiting on what is my first post as a DT member for 
It's so exciting to be part of this fab team.

Our fabby sponsers this week are the wonderful 

This company was new to me & I am sure glad I found them as there are so many fab images.
They are offering a great prize to the a winner: A $25 gift voucher

So, onto the challenge, this weeks challenge is a great one -
Shaped Cards - no squares or rectangles

I enjoyed this so much I had to make 2 with my image which is
& here are my makes :)


I kept the card simple, using a barn as it's shape, I also decoupaged the doors & the roof.


Ellie & her little pig have been cut out & mounted onto the barn using glue gel.

For my next make I decided to try a circle easel card.
It's been made using my Martha Stewart circle cutter, I cut out a number of different sized circles, inked them, stamped them (using Sheena Douglas' A Little Bit Sketchy stamps)
The sentiment has been cut using an x-cut alphabet die & mounted on another x-cut die

The image has been coloured using promarkers & it was my first time giving the clouds a bash (I was quite chuffed they worked lol)

Thanks so much for popping by & I look forward to seeing everyone's entries.

Summer Feeling

Good morning everyone, I hope the sun is shining for you :) I just wanted to share this card with you all.


The image was a fab freebie from Scrappers Delight
& I couldn't wait to use it.
It's been coloured in promarkers & layered on mats, using my fabby new perfect layers tools, they really are great. I think they make me use up those scraps a bit more
I inked & embossed a circle before sanding it back to reveal the card below. 
It's finished off with little glitter dots & roses.

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you like my card :)

Teacher Gifts

Good morning everyone & sorry for the lack of posts in the last week or so, I've been so busy with DT work & orders, but sure it keeps me out of trouble lol
I just thought I'd share some teacher cards I was asked to do. I teamed up with a friend & local business, who made the fabby bookmarks for me.

 I decided a good way to display the bookmarks would be to hang them on an open book style easel card.

The cards were personalised & have been decoupaged for added depth. The recipients loved them, & I was told one even cried lol.
Thanks for visiting xxx
