Get Creative 20th November Card Sketch

I am not here !! I am in London and if all is right with blogger you will  be reading this on the 20th of November. If this works it will be a first !  every time I schedule a post it just publishes it straight away and I have to delete it,  so here goes ………..

As it is  ( hopefully ) the 20th of the Month  our new card sketch for Get Creative has gone live. Our  lovely leader and all round good chap Irini designed this fantastic sketch.

Here is my take on it :


Have played around with it a little , a bit of flipping and rotating,  artistic license if you will !

 As you know I have to have my close ups !
I used my Silhouette for the die cuts then used the emboss resit technique with my SU swirly stamp which I coloured over with SU inks . I embossed the DP with Ranger distress embossing powder, some pearls and ribbon inked the edges and there it is. It looks simple but the little blighter took forever.
I will be sharing with you some Christmas and Thank You cards I made using similar techniques upon my return . 
Why not pop over to Get Creative to see what my team mates have created to delight and inspire you and don’t forget this month we are being sponsored by Cherry Nest who are offering two places in their on line class whose focus is on Christmas

I know you can all read Greek …… but for the one or two of you that cant it basically says that ” Every day is Christmas and there will be 32 days full of creative ideas and inspiration with lessons focusing on handmade items full of the Christmas spirit, so definitely worth winning a place with Cherry Nest.

Well am off now to stay with Dolly and her family in London so please forgive me if I am unable to visit you all during the next week but under the circumstances that most of you know,  my time is spent helping take care of her and her family during this difficult time.

Take care
