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.

you before I show you the card, it's me with the hubby & our gorgeous little man.
& now onto my card


I've used a gorgeous image from 


She's been coloured in promarkers & I used glossy accents on the beer froth & bubbles.


I used some foiled paper & used it to insert into the tag & I also die cut a star from it.
I punched holes along the edge & threaded ribbon through (so it now folds an inch in from the fold) I finished off with a mirror board die cut flourish & some faux stitching around the image.
Thanks for stopping by.

Creative Fingers #2 - Beccy's Place.

Good morning beautiful people, it's Friday, yipppeeee. That of course means that as well as nearly being the weekend, we have a new challenge from
Creative Fingers Challenge Blog

& this week we are sponsored by the wonderful



The DT were given some fab images to work with & of course there is a prize for the winner
3 images or 1 digital set
Our theme this week is:
Use a sentiment.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, & onto my make


I got to play with the lovely Rose Fairy . Once I'd decided on my colour scheme. I hadn't much in the peach colour scheme range of papers, so for my mats I coloured the edges in peach promarker. I decided on a tent style card & built up my mats & layers. I used a punch for the edge of the mat & layered a digi paper on top. I found a cut off of decorative border I had cut from before my poor robo died lol, so I coloured it again in peach & mounted it on top of the card.











I recoloured some little paper roses from my stash & die cut a leaf from patterned paper. I made up my sentiment in craft artist & attached it with a raise in the centre.











I coloured Rose in promarkers & I tried something new with the shading on the face, I am chuffed with how it turned out, but now I need to remember how I did it lol. 









So, there you have it, thanks for looking & I hope you'll join us this week. Do pop by & see what the rest of the DT have come up with too :)

Through The Purple Haze Challenges



Good morning everyone, it's Monday again already, where or where did the weekend go!!!!
but, luckily for us, Mondays mean it's challenge day at
Through The Purple  Haze Challenges
Yipeeee :)

This week it's another double header & we all followed this sketch 



 Team A are sponsored by the lovely 
I was lucky enough to get a lovely image called Eli from a designer called My Heart Pieces
Stitchy Bear are offering the winner of this challenge $10 voucher. 
& so here is my make.


I recoloured a digi paper in craft artist for my background, inked a circle of card & ran it through an embossing folder before sanding it back. My little ribbon strip is from my stash & the bigger ribbon strip is a cut of paper, I used the same paper to cut the fish tale banner from. I wrote my sentiment in Craft Artist & then cut it out & inked it to match. It's been embellished with little punched flowers & butterflies.




I coloured Eli with my promarkers. As it's for a mum-to-be I used pinks & blues & kept it fairly neutral.








I do hope you'll join us this week for our challenge (oh don't forget to check out the fantastic bog candy that's up for grabs once we hit 100 followers)
