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 - Dilly Beans

Good morning blogland, I hope you are all well out there. Welcome to another challenge from
Just Inspirational Challenges
Our theme this week is
 Swirls 
& we have lucky to be sponsored by the fabby
Dilly Beans & they are offering the winner a prize of some fab digis
& here is my make

I just love the style of these stamps & had a tough time picking which one to use, I finally settled on
Cinnamon Set, as well as the image it comes with some cute hearts & sentiments. 


My background papers are from a Debbie Moore cd - Foiled Flourishes. I layered onto blue cardstock. I then made a panel from the other paper & layered it onto red & then the blue. I used a punch to add a scalloped edge to a border & then added some more of the paper. I die cut some swirls & cut then down to different sizes. After colouring my image I layered it onto the same mats, before assembling the card & adding my stamped sentiment ticket.

My image has been coloured in with my promarkers, I am thinking I need to start adding flexmarkers to my collection now :)
For the hair I used: Burgundy, Cardinal Red & Ruby
For the skin I used: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush & Baby Pink,
For the dress I have used: Marine, Duck Egg & Cool Aqua

Anything Goes with an optional twist - stitching, real or faux
For this challenge we have been sponsored by the fantastic
Polka Doodles

Here is what I have come with for this challenge
My papers are from digikits & I used craftartist to crop them, it's a great way to only print what you need & save ink. I also used it to size my digi. Isn't he cute, he's called Lewis

I used a grey as my base card & for some of the matting too. My sentiment was stamped & cut out using one of my dies.
I used my promarkers to colour him up & added some faux stitching around the edge before matting onto more grey & assembling the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for our challenge.

Just Inspirational Challenges- Stampart

Hey everyone & welcome to another challenge from
Just Inspirational Challenges
& this week we have been lucky enough to be sponsored by 
& the lucky winner will get to pick 5 images from the store. 
Our theme this week is
Children
I decided I just had to play with Raggedy Girl Swing as it was so cute & also it is a different type of image for me & here is the finished card
I wanted to keep my colours fairly pastel, so I went with greens & pinks as the main colours. I used papers from my stash & matted them onto pink cardstock

I then coloured up my image & cut it into an oval before layering it onto the pink gingham.

I die cut my flowers & punched & embossed the butterflies. Once they were put together I arranged them onto the card. I have left it without a sentiment for now as I am not sure who it will be for yet.
So, there you have it, thanks so much for stopping by & I do hope you'll join us in this fun challenge.
