Ho Ho Ho and all That!

Welcome to todays post for Just Us Girls
The Lovely Lisa is Host and chose a
super image with lots of goodies to choose from.
What took my eye was the framed piece
sitting on the bench. I knew straight away 
what I would use here.
Here's a bigger picture!

I hadn't planned to use my background for that purpose -
I was going to use it for my cut out but it turned out
so nicely that it landed up there.
I scrunched some tissue paper and adhered to card stock,
went over it with VersaFine and heat embossed
using WOW Metallic Platinum powder.
I then used the same powder for my CUTplorations 
Holidays Word Die Plate. Attached that then
die cut my frame adhering to metallic paper
and finishing with my card base.
A super die plate for an easy Christmas card make.
Pop over and see what our Guest Rachel took from the photo
and the Team's inspiration also.
Thank you Rachel for sharing your creativity with us
this month as our Guest.

As we do each year we take December off
to spend time with family and friends if we are able -
and to replenish our craftiness for the New Year so
we will be back in full swing on 1st January.

PS I am lucky enough to be flying north to 
spend Christmas with family. Swanning by the pool
keeping cool and enjoying my fill of fresh seafood
with a little wine on the side. It's the Tropics. Fun eh!

Enjoy Christmas wherever and whoever you are with.

You 'ROCK'

 I'm Rockin' it for our latest challenge over at
and we are looking for Something Musical.

Because Hubby is an avid guitar player/collector
that was my obvious choice.

Here's a close up!

Background is with Tim's Oxide Inks,
a little bit of  crackled stenciling, a few black splatters 
and some music notes.
Die cut a circle to place the guitar on
using the same inks as the background,
adding glossy gel medium, touches of inking, nuvo drops
and glued to a white one for shadowing then popped.
Added appropriate sentiment and onto black paper,
finishing with white card base.
The Sistah's have made amazing musical makes
so pop over and check them out then 
come join us by adding yours to our Gallery.

Till next time -
