Early mornings and bad dreams

Well it's 5:53 on Thursday morning, and I have woken up after having a not so bad, bad dream, not a happy bunny :-(

Hate it when that happens, you wake up with such a start and the dream still running through my thoughts, that you can't get back to sleep (ARRGGG)

Well that little rant is over, so think I will go play in my room for a bit, then try to get back to sleep, so I can watch Tom Johnson, Maria Simms and Dawn Bibby on Create & Craft (671 sky, 36 freeview) @ 12pm Thursday 27th September, with more SplodgeAway and some really fantastic new products, that the design team have had the pleasure to play with, and create some wonderful demo's for you to see and give you inspiration to make your own beautiful creations, so please tune in, and enjoy the show

Ok now I'm off to play so see you all soon xx

Happy Crafting XX

S is for Splodge-N-Stamp

Well this weeks SplodgeAway DT card was Stamping.  I love to stamp, so when i got asked to do the card i jumped at the chance, so i grabbed up some stamps i had stashed away, and put the card together, the elements of the card fell into place like a jigsaw puzzle.

This is my interpretation of stamping, so have fun.

Please pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and have a look at the other DT members interpretation of stamping.

Have fun, happy crafting and keep on Splodging

I'm famous me

SplodgeAway went live on Create and Craft on Thursday 5th July @ 12pm, and it was a HUGE success, a sell out, Sue, Tom and the design team couldn't be happier, all the hard work that everyone put into getting all the masks and mats cut and packed for the show, but now the hype of create and Craft is over ( for now anyway lol), Tom is still working hard, as from the show finishing on Thursday the phone has not stopped ringing, with people ringing from all over the UK wanting SplodgeAway Mats.

So today i went into Suzicrafts, in the intentions of crafting, Guess what ,  that didn't happen, as soon as i walked into the shop Tom was stood there with the his whip (not really lol), so i thought i would give them a hand in packing some more Mats, ready for customers to buy, I'm not surprised how popular the mats have been, as they are JAMZING.

My famous card that was used on Create and Craft

Why not get yourself over to the SplodgeAway blog and look @ some of the other design teams beautiful cards.

Hope you enjoy, and Happy Crafting xx
