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.

Through The Purple Haze Challenges #1

Good morning everyone & welcome to the very first challenge (it's actually 2 challenges) from 

We have all been so excited & eagerly waiting for today to arrive.

So to start of we are running an
Anything Goes challenge.
& the winner of this challenge gets some
fantastic goodies from 
the wonderful & ultra talented (& also one of my fav places to shop)

We are  also running another challenge & you will find the details on the main blog.

So onto my make for the challenge, I have gone for Anything Goes.

I have gone for Monochromatic, it's my first time trying is & after a few failed attempts 
I finally finished one I am happy with :)
I have used 
Happy Hour digital stamp from Kenny K.
you can find her here
I went for a shaped card, used a digi backing paper & decorated with some flowers made from dies
as well as my little doily & flourish dies. For the matting & layering I used my Perfect Layers rulers, I got these from Joanna Sheen & I think they are a great addition to my tools, you can find them here

She has been coloured in promarkers. I had such fun making this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by & please visit all the other DT members to see their makes.
