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.

I decided to make a centre stepper & as I thought the image was quite vintage looking, I kept to mainly browns & golds.

The image has been matted & layered onto creams & browns. The back panel is coredinations cardstock from Crafters Companion & was run through my cuttlebug & sanded back.. The side panels are some papers from my stash. I then made & cut the sentiment on my cameo & finished off with faux stitching & gems

The image itself was coloured in promarkers & I used distress inks on the edges.

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend, it was a busy morning for us here, as my little man started senior infants in school. I can't believe how fast the holidays went, we had a wonderful Summer, but now I may be able to get back into my routine, that's the plan anyway lol.

& here is my make
I find CAS cards very hard to make, I don't think I ever get them right, but hey I try lol.

I coloured my image using my promarkers in greens & purples. I inked a mat for the digi & the sentiment to match. The gingham card is from my stash & I tied a bow around it. I cut a butterfly with my cameo, assembled the card & added some gems.
