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
