Its time once again for a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnights theme has been chosen by the lovely Susie who will be the host for the next two weeks. Susie has chosen a sketch for us to follow and I have to say I really enjoyed this challenge , here is the sketch she would like us to follow
Here is my DT piece
With the exception of the card base this was made entirely out of leather , oh and of course the eyelets oh yes and the UTEE embellishment in the centre of the flower. Well its nearly all leather !!! I made the flower with a Sizzix 3D flower die and TH on the edge die. I embossed and distressed the leather and I have to say although its quite a simple card I love the outcome and it smells gorgeous ! The centre of the flower is one of my home made embellishments, I made a silicone mold and then filled it with UTEE that I had coloured with a little gold embossing powder.
I enjoyed working with this sketch so much I made another card.
Again more die cuts and embossing , the little owl I fussy cut and gave him two white eyelets well for....eyelets ! Once again love the effect the embossing folders has on leather so beware you will most probably be seeing a lot of it in the days to come.

Today is a bittersweet day for our family , here in Greece there is still national service and my oldest son Alexi who is nearly 21 has left today for the army in Kozani he will be away for nine months !! He will be spending his 21st birthday in the camp which according to my husband who took him today looked a little like Colditz !! Just as well its in the middle of nowhere as the army pay is a whopping 8.72 euros a month !!!!! and its about to be reduced !!!
