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

This week our theme is Christmas
& we have been sponsored by the fabby

The lucky winner will receive a die, fab yeah?
So, here is my make using 
Snowglobe Reindeer Topper die
I decided to make a circle rocker card with the beautiful die.

I think this is one of my fav Christmas dies so far

I kept it simple with some matting & layering & adding some snowflakes & ferns cut on my cameo.
I've added some sparkle, but the camera hasn't picked it up very well.
So there you have it, thanks a mill for stopping by

Good morning & welcome to the weekend, yipppeeee
It's also time for another challenge from


& for this challenge we are sponsored by the lovely
Crafty Sentiments Designs

Our theme this week is, as always, anything goes, with the optional twist of Fall
& here is my make


I got to use Blitz

I printed off a digi background of an outdoor scene, I then cut out lots & lots of leaf shapes using my cameo, I cut them from cream card & went to work on them with my distress inks. I used the cameo again to cut a bare tree & designed a layered sentiment.
I then put it all together, layering the leaves. Some were stuck flat & some were raised using foam pads, I added the digi to make it look like she was playing in the leaves

I used a different skin combo of Apricot, coral, oatmeal & pastel pink for my skin colour & I quite like it. Her clothes are all in different combos of browns & her hair using caramel, mustard, tulip yellow & buttercup.
So, there ya have it, thanks so much for stopping by.

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
