About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

I am ecstatic to let you know that I am one of the Design Team Members and will be creating along with the fabulous and wonderful Admin & Head Design Team Member Sandie and also Teamie Moira :-)

For the very first challenge the theme is 'Anything Goes' isn't this just the best challenges ever?  If you thought that was good then you should feast your eyes on the 'Gorjuss' prize :-)

Isn't it fantastic!!!

I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations, go let your imaginations and creativity go wild and share them over on CraftyHands Challenge Blog for your chance to win this spectacular prize.

This is my DT project for the launch of what promises to be a fabulous Challenge Blog

I created this 5.5" x 5.5" card using one for my Gorjuss Girl stamps from the fabulous collection available from Docrafts.  I just love these stamps.  I coloured it using Copic markers and added some stickles on her petti coat and top of her dress.  I used 2 Martha Stewart border punches on pink and purple cardstock and layered them together.  I cut a Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn die from the same pink cardstock and deepened the colour using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I used a mixture of Wild Orchid Craft flowers to create my cluster in the top left hand corner and made some curly ques from a few cherry blossom stems.  I gessoed a bronze butterfly and added some flat backed gems for a little sparkle, coupled with the use of diamond stickles spread over the tips of the flowers.  I added some faux stitches with a white gel pen in top right hand corner.  The sentiment is from the same Gorjuss stamp set '.....on top of the world'.

I hope you like my card, I had fun creating it and look forward to many more creations for 

Please also take a look at the other teamies blogs too and see their wonderful creations

As always thank you all so very much for stopping past my blog, I really appreciate all your wonderful comments, they spur me to create more for you.

Great Big Huge Hugs
