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.

Creative Fingers Challenges - #25

Good morning bloggers & welcome to Friday :) I hope you've all had a good week. I'm here this morning with another challenge from

Creative Fingers Challenge Blog
We have been lucky enough to be sponsored this week by the wonderful

& of course there is a prize for the lucky winner. 
Our theme this week is
Vintage
& so, here is my make
I made a 5"x7" card. I layered my backing paper, which was from my stash onto some cream coloured hammered card, which I got at Cardz n Scrapz & you can find it here. I love this card, it's 300gsm & folds & cuts beautifully. All my embellishments & flowers have been cut using my Cameo. I stamped onto the notebook page using distress ink, the hexagons are from a Bo Bunny set (you can find it here)

As it is a vintage theme I used browns for her clothing, with a touch of pale purples. 

I added a touch of gilding wax (homemade, using clear shoe polish & mica, LOVE IT) to my flowers.

And, there you have it. My vintage make. 
I hope you like it & join us this week.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: Something not mean't for crafting (the shoe polish in my gilding wax)
Passion For Promarkers: Make it digital
Crafting from the Heart: Use flowers
Make Something Monday: Stamp something
