My proud moment.

Just before I went on my Jollies the now famous TOM JOHNSON from SPLODGE AWAY based at SUZICRAFT in Stockton on tees asked me, along with other members of his design team  to do some samples for  his next show on create and craft. I only had four days to come up with something as I was due to go away but was up for the challenge. After all I thought if not good enough they wont be used so nothing to lose. I was unable to watch the show but got someone to record it for me and was soooooooooooo proud to see my cards on Toms show. Not only that but when I was watching Dawn
Biddy on C&C on Tuesday there was Dawn holding up one of my cards again. Wow twice in one week. Told my friends they will have to pay to talk to me now and curtsey when they see me.lolx

Thanks to Tom for giving me this opportunity.xxxx The top card withthe ribbon is the one from Dawn Bibbies show but they were all on Toms show.

All for now. Happy Crafting.x

Oooops forgot to add photos of day at Suzicraft. Lots of tea, biscuits , fun and crafting.x

Good morning to all. Well this is going to be just a quick post as I have had another busy week and am going away today for 2 weeks to visit my relatives in sussex and Kent.

Yesterday I visited my fav craft shop Suzicraft to leave my samples to add to the design teams efforts for Toms next show on Create and Craft. This will be his Chritmas show Splodgalistic axmas masks. I will be away at the time so dont know if I will be able to find somewhere to watch the show(: so hope its repeated or some nice person out there is recording it for me.

Happy Crafting everyone.x

Busy week! not half. I have had loads of projects on over the last week and each one as important as the next. Or so it seemed. Our lovely tom from Suzicraft invited me to be on the design team for Suzicraft and Splodge Away. how honoured was I. He set me  a task this week to do some some samples for Suzicraft so I set to with fumbling fingers (like I'd never made a card before ) I was so nervous. How stupid but it was important to me to make a good job and fill his criteria. Well got there and I will put a few on my blog for you to see.

Next on my list, was Little Joan had given me two pages for me to decorate in her circle book ,the theme being shabby sheik. Now for those of you who are not familiar with a circle book heres what it is. A group of friends get together to make a book. If there are six of you then it will have a front cover and the first pages inside will be your rules and what your theme is. The next six pages will then be left blank and passed around your friends in turn. They will each complete a page interpreting your theme in their way until the book is complet.e Hope that makes sense. Its lovely to see peoples ideas.

The top one with the bird cage was achieved by painting the board withe blue acryclic paint, then a layer of PVA glue and then a layer of mixed mushroom and yellow acrylic paint. This is then dried with a heat gun to create the crackled effect. The bird cage and bird on twig was cut from a marianne die as was the leaf.. The butterfly ( and this is where I make a comple idiot of myself)  how on earth do you spell hypoxi sticker!!!!!!!!!!!  The works were an Indigo Blue rubber stamp, distressed ( On my Splodge Mat of course) The edges were curled and it was finished of with a little metal embellishment from my crafty stash.

It doesnt end there. My daughters friend had a little girl three weeks early so a card was required and next my nieces 40th birthday. This one had to be special but first I had to make one from my daughter!
This is what I made from me. Splode away was used in abundance in this one. Unfortunately my camera doesnt always take the best pictures ( or is it me) and show them of to there best. Not always picking up the detail but here goes.

Back to Suzicraft tomorrow to say hello to my crafty friends and to hand in my circle book which,yes, I started this week as well!

Good night and Happy Crafting. (If you dont craft why not!!!!!!!) lolxxxx

On Saturday 4th August ( Dear me another month already) I picked up my crafting buddy Susan Ward and headed of down to Suzicraft Crafts for a days wokshop with Maria Simms having spent the night before eating yoguts and apple pies as I needed the containers for crafting! Susan and I were a little aprehensive as you never know what is expectef of you before you go to these workshops if you havent been to one before.

Well what a great day we both had. Fun, food,fabulous company and amongst all that maria managed to  hold an amazing workshop. We all took home a mirror decorated by ourselves in our own unique way but guided by maria. A great big thank you Maria and to Tom and Susan for arranging it all.
I have attached a picture of mine. Hope you like it. It is now taking pride of place on my dining room wall! This is Maria who has managed to look stunning amongst all the gunk an me well ......... I will leave that to you.

Happy Craftingx
