Rudolph Days Challenge

Wow the 25th of the month sure came around fast this time. I made my entry into the Rudolph Days Challenge at the end of last week, as I knew that today would be hectic. Not only do we have our Grandson for the day, but tomorrow we are up and off at stupid o'clock as we are going to Canada for a holiday. Still most of the bags are packed now just that last few bits to be added. For my card this time I have again gone for snowmen and this lovely stamp I picked up last September at Ally Pally on the Creative Expressions stand for just £3.00 (wood mounted). If I remember correctly it was originally  by Jayne Nesterenko. I stamped on to watercolour card and embossed with black embossing powder before using Aqua markers to colour them. I finished off by going around the outside with blue distress inks.



 As normal for this challenge I made a batch of 4, so my stash is growing every month. I normally like to get around and look at what everyone has made, my apologies for not being able to do that this month.


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