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 #2




Good morning everyone & welcome to our second challenge at 

Let me start off by saying thank you to everyone who joined us for our first challenge, everyone's entry was fabulous & congrats to all the winners.

So, on to this week's challenge, which we ourselves are sponsoring & we have a mystery prize up for grabs, oh I do love surprises 

Our theme this week is:
ANYTHING WITH FLOWERS
I love making flowers so this theme was right up my alley :)

& here are my makes


At the same time as finding out about the challenge I was asked to 
make some boxes to give to a hen on her hen weekend. They were to hold
a something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue.
So I decided to do some boxes that would stack & look like a cake.

I made four boxes, the largest being 6"x6"x3" & the smallest being 3"x3"x3"
I made the boxes themselves from cake box board, I love using this as I buy it in A2 & can cut it down, it means I can make boxes bigger than I used to be able to.
I covered each piece of card in Antique Linen distress ink & then stamped around what would be the box lids in Vintage Photo. The bases were stamped using Vintage Photo too but I used the 2nd generation technique.

Once I'd put the boxes together it was time to make all those pretty flowers.


I used Marianne dies & Tim Holtz dies for all the flowers & foliage


I inked some, added glitter to others & gems to some.
I then simply stacked the boxes & glued the flowers on once I was happy with how they looked.
I hope you like my offering, thanks for popping by & I appreciate all of your comments.

By sure to stop by & see what all the other DT members have come up with, you won't be sorry :)
I love forward to seeing everyone's entries
Big Hugs
