I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #100


This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is set by the lovely HELEN. Can you believe we are on challenge 100 - seems like only yesterday when we started.

She has designed this fab sketch to follow.

When I saw the sketch I thought the centre circle was screaming out to be an aperture. Here is a picture of the inside of the card where I have mask stamped the Magnolia tree and Tilda. The background is coloured with blue pearlised chalk which twinkles beautifully in real life!

Take a look at the challenge blog to see the other girlies creations and to join us.
