Totally Gorjuss Challenge 245 - Butterflies

Kia Ora

So I'm back today with something different yet again for me and this is an altered envelope. I have no idea if this is allowed in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge but I'll put it out there anyway lols. I am using this envelope to RAK a crafty friend, I hope she likes it.



I have used a mix of Lumiere paints and Sharpies. A dylusions stencil and a cake butterfly stencil the other doodling is free hand. 

Thanks for looking 

And as always 

Keep Well x

Tag Swap

Kia Ora,

It's been a while and I have had a lot of upheaval in my life recently but I think I'm back in the mood to blog again, lols..

Recently I made a couple of tags for a swap. This was my first tag swap ever and to be honest I quite enjoyed it, well I enjoy making art full stop. So keeping it brief because you know me, short and sweet :) here they are:


Love the quote on this tag .. 

Water colored girl.


I hope my tag partner likes them. But it doesn't matter if she doesn't because I had a lot of fun making them. 

Thanks for stopping by

And as always

Keep Well x

Dainty Cake

Kia Ora

I finished this card two days ago but the weather hasn't been any good for taking a photograph, the weather is still a bit on the dodgy side but I took the photo anyway because I've already missed one challenge and I'd hate to miss another when I've made the card lols.
