I will shortly be traveling back to London to stay with her once again and just wanted to pop in and say hello and to say that I have missed you all and your beautiful creations Unfortunately I was unable to visit you while I was away but hopefully during the next few days I will try and catch up with you all.
One of the reasons I returned to Greece was that my youngest son who is 16 together with his band Chinese Basement had the honour of being chosen to play at The Megaro Music Hall in Athens and for my Greek followers they will know the significance of this. They where chosen along with three other bands from all over Greece to give their interpretation of one of Greece”s great composers Hatzidakis work together with some of their own material. It was a fabulous night and I have to say it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for these young people I am so very proud of you Ari , Vasili and Fivo !
I saw upon my return that The Craft Room where having an ” Anything Christmas ” theme for the next two weeks and as it is such a happy subject I decided to have ago . Can’t say it’s my best work as the old mojo is a little lackluster at the moment.As you will see it’s a rather understated effort but under the circumstances it was all I could muster.
Have to say the title is rather ironic though ! I used one of my Tim Holtz on the edge dies for the card and did a little embossing for extra dimension . I also embossed the green felt it really gives a wonderful effect if you haven’t tried it yet you should I really liked the outcome. The letters are chipboard which I stamped with one of my distress crackle stamps in Stazon red ink.
I used my Silhouette machine to generate the background and the sentiment . Martha Stewart punches for the borders and oops I have just realised that I have cropped out my little bird on the top right hand corner. ( anyway it’s not his first appearance so I am sure he wont mind !)
Like I said very simple and understated cards even if they took me forever to do !
Do pop over to the Craft Room Challenge where you can see the fabulous inspirational pieces by the DT and also the many wonderful entries by their loyal followers.
