Yes your eyes are not decieving you ..... I am back second day on the trot!!!
This time I am back to showcase the samples from today's Splodge Away shows on Create and craft

This pen fold card was very simple mat and layering with the flowers from todays flower creations masks and using the gorgeous new Spellbinders butterflies
This is simple to make just affix three 4 x 4 in card blanks together to make the concertina base.
Then came the Gothic set where I went with a 1920's theme with this gorgeous clarity stamp, some simple embossing using mirror card and  I had a go at the pearl drops technique favoured by the super talented Sue Wilson. stunningly effective though it can test the nerves and needs a steady hand LOL!!!
This card utilised the pentacle and rune components of the Gothic set. there are many variaitions you could use these simple individual symbols for. 
Next came 2 simillarly colour schemes.....probably because they are my go too favourites!!

The first uses pan pastels and some very effective touches I learned at one of Eileen Godwins fantastic classes

While for this one I took the leaf layout and got nice n messy with some radiance rains along with some Shenna Douglas stamps, Paperatsy words and the butterflies got another outing as well!!   
And finally probably my personal fave project from this months designs altough sadly it didnt make our tv screens. I went back to my roots and with a little help from my Mum we cut out lots of the flower creators from the fabulous 60's themed Hippy Chic paper pad to create this fun bright bunting

I hope you enjoyed the show and all the awesome samples from todays shows ..... the whole DT excelled themselves!!!
Right I am off to feed various cats, dogs, bunnies, budgies, cockateels, chickens and cockerels.
Stay safe in this wintery weather
Crafty cheers for now
Happy Crafting
Love Rae
