I coloured my base card with Pan Pastels and roughed up the edges with my very noisy Zutter distresser, all of the animals run for cover as soon as I start using it ! Sounds like something from a Hitchcock film ! The grey Co-ordinations card-stock was embossed and treated to a good going over with my sanding block . The beautiful frame courtesy  of Miss Cameo a few pearls added and the lovely butterfly is Hero Arts from the butterfly stamp and die cut set, coloured with Copics and the Glossy Accents.

The pretty Cameo I made myself by making a mold and filling it with iclay which is similar to Fimo but a lot softer and squishier and great fun to play with.

Do hope you will have time to join for our last challenge of the year at Get Creative the design team have come up with some fabulous cards .The winner of this challenge will be invited back as guest designer in January.

Sorry this is a short post but I  am running around like a crazy woman as am sure the rest of you are ! Our shop is open from ten till nine at night and we’re  working Saturdays and Sundays so not much free time until January so……….

I wish you all a healthy and happy Christmas a fabulous new year hopefully spent with your loved ones and families and look forward to catching up with you all over the holidays

Take care
