Gingerbread card.

Hi Ladies,
My daughter wanted me to make her a card to send to America to her fiance's God-daughters,they are 4 little girls.Anyway the idea was to make a composition with Gingerbread men that each little girls could have as her own. then Faye,  my daughter said why don't you make them hold hands and this is what turned out . A gingerbread garland,I then added an extra tag for the wishes as we did not want to write on the back of the little figures in case we ruin them.
I hope that you have all done your baking and decorating and are now enjoying your festive homes.
I will be away for a few days, will catch up again on Sunday God willing.
Oh by the way we are going to have a crop again on Sunday ....what fun to see some of my new friends again.
Bye for a while.
Peace and good cheer to all

The Joy of Christmas

This is a mini that we made at the crop 2 weeks ago. Its pages are made with one sheet of 30x30cm paper.
Eleni Gratsias demonstrated the technique to us. I decided to use the photos that were in a box, those not used in our family albums.So here are some of our past christmas pictures.

A winner

Hi girls
I am so excited to be one of the winners for #4 Challenge at Scrapbookers in Greece We had to make our own flowers and as I believe in trying to use what I have around me and to re-cycle I used some netting that was around a wine bottle and some chocolate wrappers,who can guess what they are? This is what I came up with.

I made this L.O. on Sunday afternoon after lunch. I must admit I was very inspired after the crop that we had been to on saturday and Elina gave us a lesson we did a L.O.  with gesso and stamped paper. I used 3D paint on my re-cycled cardboard box because I had no gesso at home.. The paper was out of Elinas scrap paper box, it is from Tiffany's from WRMK. I used a Tim Holtz mask and some brown dabber paint for the background. Chipboard letters are embossed in black. The little bit of brown around my net flower is a Sizzix die cut ,I used plain brown cardstock which I stamped in gold ,then I used some Modge Podge with a little bit of orange acrylic paint, but I wiped that off straight-away and then added another layer of modge. when the modge had dried I added some glimmer mist.
I dedicated this L.O. to my Hubby  Pano who says he will frame it and put it up.He is at the AEK soccer match at the Olympic Stadium with the rest of the family at the moment, Just wait till they get home and hear the news.....they are really very supportive.
Thats all for now folks.
God Bless.
