Rudolph Days and Getting Back To Normal

Well I know that it's been a while since I last posted. Thank you to those who expressed concern but it was just life (and decorating) getting in the way. I'm glad to say that after 4 months of not having a Craft Room, I moved back in this week. Below are the first results of makes in the new improved room. Because everything had to be moved out and then moved back again it gave me a chance to explore some stamps from Chocolate Baroque that have not been for an outing for a few years. They were stamped onto white card and then coloured with pencils before getting the distress ink treatment. Then mounted onto some matching card and backing papers from Artylicious Seasons Greeting CD. I made these with the Rudolph Days Challenge over at Scrappy Mo's. This is the last challenge this year but I will continue to join in next year, it's a great way to get a head start on the Christmas cards.


I hope to have some more cards to share over the weekend, but next week I'm taking a short break with some crafting friends from the UKSN at the Manor House Hotel in Devon. Lots of different crafting things to try, so I'm looking forward to this.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue
