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 - SSS

Good morning blogland, it's time for another challenge from 


& this week it's team B's turn
We have been sponsored this week by the talented 

 ,who have given us some fab digis to play with for this challenge & are also offering a
prize of  4 digi images to the lucky winner.
Here is this weeks inspirational photo


When I saw the photo I knew exactly image I wanted to use - My Fair Lady
& here is my make xxxx


I knew I wanted a larger card, so I made a 7.5"x7.5" card base, I used my score board to emboss the front of the card in a crisscross pattern. I also embossed the mat  & the digi itself. I made some flowers & dipped them in glitter & also glittered the flourish. I added some pearls to the butterflies & larger pearls to the embossed card base.

I took my inspiration from the colours of the photo as well as using flowers & tried to give it an elegant feel.
I had real trouble with this card as I am so unused to using so little colour & I didn't want it to appear flat or drab. I hope you like my make :)
Here is a close up of the coloured image


She has been coloured with promarkers (I forgot to write a list of colours used, but it was the pale yellows, saffron etc.)
Thanks for stopping by & I appreciate any comments you'd like to leave.
Be sure & stop by the blogs of the rest of team B too.

I made an easel card & let the topper hang down, it stands using the handmade flower.
I used a die cut border & coloured it with my promarkers.
The paper is a digi & I have matted it onto yellow & orange layers, adding a lilac one to matt the digi.

I coloured her with promarkers & added some gems to her glasses & the corners of the iamge.

Through The Purple Haze Challenges #4 Crafty Sentiments



Good morning everyone, it's time for another fab challenge over at


& this week it's the turn of the hazelnuts on team A
This week we are sponsored by the wonderful
Our theme this week is cards with tickets or tags
The winner of this challenge will get to choose 3 DIGIS from the store, it'll be a hard choice for you to pick just 3 as I think they are all fab.

I was lucky enough to get to work with Summer Breeze & you can find her here
& here is my make


I inked up my background with distress inks, dropped some water droplets onto it & soaked up the excess with paper towels, I then used some bubble wrap to stamps randomly over the card.
The line of tickets is a mask.
I then stamped some tickets, inked them & added sentiments before cutting them out.


I added some punched & embossed butterflies to the ticket strip, added some flourishes that were cut from my robo (before she died, sob sob)
& made a cute little rolled rose.


Here is a close up of the oh so cute image, which I have coloured using promarkers. I was happy with how the folds in her dress turned out as I usually seem to have trouble with folds.

That's all from me for now, thanks so much for stopping by & check out the blog candy we are offering on the main blog when we reach 100 followers (details are in my side bar)

I would like to enter my make in the following challenges:
