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 - Little Blue Button

Good morning & welcome to another challenge from Just Inspirational Challenges.
It's the turn of team B 


this week & we have a fantastic sponsor - 


If you haven't been by their store then you need to, I fell in love with some of the cute images
& adore the simple but cute feel to them.
There is also a great prize up for grabs too



As usual we have a photo for you to use as inspiration & here it is


You can interpret the photo in any way you choose, ie. the shapes, colours, style etc.

Now onto my make, we were given a digi stamp from our sponsor & I had such a hard time deciding on
the one I wanted to use & finally settled on 

So here is what I came up with


I wanted to keep it simple & clean & so decided not to use patterned papers, which I think is a first for me. I just stuck to 2 colours of paper & used matts & layers to build up the card. I die cut some circle & layered these also, as well as some flourishes & finishing it off with some cute roses, which I also made in the same 2 papers.


I coloured Miss Lily in promarkers in shades matching the papers.
I wasn't sure about this card, I think I had issues in not using my pretty papers but once I had it all put together I was actually quiet happy. I guess it goes to show that sometimes we really can't judge a project until it's been put together & the finishing touches added.

Thanks so much for visiting & I really hope you'll join us in this week's challenge. Don't forget to visit the main blog & also check out what my

  4. The simple colour scheme without DP works really well with your sweet image. Sometimes it is nice to set yourself a challenge and it's especially good when you get a great result at the end :-)
