April Rudolph Days

 The 25th of the month is here again and that means it's time for the Rudolph Days challenge over at Scrappymo's. It my turn on the DT this month and my card for you has been made using the New USB by Sheena Douglas. I've used this gorgeous digi stamp of a beautiful Robin sitting on a branch. I really enjoyed getting the pencils out and losing myself for a couple of hours colouring 8 of these and then making them up into cards ready to go into my box for Christmas. The base card is A5 and the silver matting is from some wallpaper that I found in the DIY shop prior to lockdown last year. Not sure that I would want it on my walls but it looks great as a backing card. I do hope that you can come and join in the fun this month, Maureen always has a wonderful prize for the person who is chosen at random as the winner.

 Hoping that this finds you all keeping well and staying safe.

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

Happy Birthday Daughter

 Tomorrow is my Sister-in-laws birthday and this is the card that I have made for my Father-in-law to give to her. I have used Tattered Lace's Natural Collection for this card (I have used this die set before for my Daughter) and the Heart die is from another set. I printed the sentiment onto card before cutting it out with the die. There are several layers to the flowers giving it lots of depth.

I've been so busy over the last week, we have signed the contract to my Mum's house and although we have not exchanged yet it made us realise that we had to get the remaining furniture and her belongings out quite quickly. So I have been backward and forwards taking photos and advertising things for sale and for free and then having to be there for collection. Also the garage still had lots of stuff in from before my Dad passed away back in 2007. It's been quite a roller coaster of emotions for both my sister and myself and it looks as though it will continue for the next week or so too. 

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