Welcome to Release 105 at My Creative Time - Sneak Peek #3

 Welcome to another amazing release at

  My Creative Time

Can you believe it is number 105? Neither can I !!

Emma has done an amazing job!

Today we are Sneak Peeking 

- Gift Card Greetings

I knew right away what I wanted to make!
An International version and a Dutch one! 

As you might know, I am from The Netherlands.
Although more and more people celebrate Xmas with presents under the tree, a lot of Dutch families celebrate Sinterklaas.
Sinterklaas has arrived in our country last Saturday, with his steamboat from Spain, due to COVID, they didn't tell us where he would arrive but they had a live broadcast on the television and ofcourse I had to watch it.
It is always such a special time, where childeren can put their shoe in front of the fire (instead of a stocking) with a carrot for the horse of Sinterklaas.
And on December 5th it is thé night, when Sinterklaas brings his presents for everybody, for the older believers he writes personal poems, which are very funny and they always rhyme!

We eat gingerbread buttons and chocolate initials and drink hot cocao.


So this is what I made:


 

So the left one is International

I used the cute extra's from the Gift Card Greetings and did it in Farmhouse Style again to keep the theme going!

And the right one is Dutch!
I used 
dec25th Die (back in stock this Friday whoop whoop)


I cut the 2 off and put the dec behind the 5 because that is how we Dutch write our dates 05.12.2020 as in America it is 12.05.2020


I used an intial die from my own collection to make a big Chocolate initial, ofcourse it had to be an E from Emma!


And the 
a gold-coloured crosier and mitre are from my own collection as well
The jute oval from Doggies & Kitties represents the bag of Zwarte Piet,
the helper and friend of Sinterklaas, this bag contains the gingerbread buttons but also the shoe presents and on December 5th the presents!!!!
