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

Boooo, yup it's me :) I've been in hiding for a while lol. I took some time out but now I'm back & what better way to come back than with a new challenge from 

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

I've moved teams & am now with the fabby girls from Team B & this week we have been sponsored by

& also by a new sponsor


Our theme this week is
Sweet Summer
& I hope where ever you are the weather is better than here in Ireland, we've had alot of lovely sun the last few weeks but that's left us & we've been having major rain fall :( come back sun, I miss you lol
Anyway, enough of me waffling & on with my make. 
I got to use 
Smurfette Honey from Sassy Studio Designs & you can find her in the store
I made a 5"x7" card blank from A4 cardstock & printed off a digi paper before matting it onto blue & a layer of silver mirri,I cut a plain border from the blue too. 

  I matted my coloured image onto the same cards & mounted it, at an angle, onto the base. I added some rolled roses & foliage, cut with my cameo & some gems 

My bow was made from some rolls of paper wrapping ribbon I got on offer in Lidl & I made the bow using an afro comb :)

I have tried to use different colours when colouring skin & I recently bought a ebook from the lovely 
Donna-Marie, she is just fab with promarkers & all proceeds of the book are going to charity, pop by the fb page to find out how to grab a copy. I so wasn't sure when I was colouring her, I thought the skin looked too dark, but once I had the hair done I was quite happy :) I used shades of blue for the outfit of course, being Smurfette lol 
So, there you have it, my first DT effort for Team B, do pop by & see what the rest of the girlies have come up with xxxx
