Featured by Marjie Kemper


I have a very special post for you today!

I've known about the lovely Marjie Kemper for some time, but me being a newbie I didn't realise how much this talented artist and a teacher has to offer. It was a few weeks ago when I actually left a comment on her website and found myself in awe when an email from Marjie arrived asking if she could feature my 'Dragonfly' artwork on her fantastic series called 'Tuesday's Texture'! I cannot tell you how honoured I am today to be featured on her website. Thank you, Marjie, it means a lot!

Whimsical flower card - brusho bleaching technique...


I can't believe it is already Thursday! Where does the time go?! I've had a busy few days as I have been working on a project that I can't publish. Doesn't it suck? i know... I really want to show you my altered birdhouse as I think it is a real cutie, but it's going to have to wait... I do however have a card to show you today so that's good, right? Before I go ahead and start rambling about how it was made I'd like to welcome my fabulous new blog buddies! What a gorgeous and talented bunch you are! I feel blessed to have you close by and will be exploring your blogs asap! Thank you for joining me on my crafty journey!

Today's card is quite special! It is not what I made, but who for... I recently sent a few crafty items to my dear crafty friend Donna and included this card. She just received it so I can show you now...

Mixed media card with Brusho


Just a quick post as I have two hungry birdies to feed soon :)

I'd like to welcome my new blog buddies, it's so nice to have you here! Thank you for joining me on my creative ride :)

I have just seen this fabulous sketch on the STAMPlorations website and just couldn't resist making a big mess. This was supposed to be a CAS card, but somehow I got carried away and just couldn't stop playing once I've seen my orange toned messy brusho background (used - lemon, orange, scarlet, brilliant red). I dried and left it.

Butterfly card with brusho & something special...


Today is a special day for me as today is all about my family. Not only that today was my due date last year (yes, my little one will be 1 this month! No, she did not make an appearance on that day...), but also today would have been my dear angel Grandma's birthday so I will be lighting a candle in her memory today. I miss her dearly, she was an angel on earth and now is an angel in Heavens.
I would also like to mention one more, very important person in my life and that is my dear Mum! And as we are having such a nice round up here I'd like to show you how beautifully talented my Mummy is. She loves crafting with Pergamano and makes the most amazing projects. From cards, to envelopes and tiny gift boxes... they are just amazing. Yesterday she sent me a bunch of photos taken with her phone and I asked if I could share them. The photos are not great but they will give you a good idea of what she does... so here they are, the tiny gift boxes she just made...
