January Rudolph Days

 The 25th of the month can only mean one thing, it's time for the Rudolph Days Challenge. I know we have just put away the Chrisrmas decorations but if we start making our cards now it's not so rushed nearer the big day. I've been doing this now for quite a few years and I always make several of the same design, this time I managed seven, it should have been eight but one went totally wrong so was popped into the bin. I used a die that was from Creative Expressions Paper Cutz collection. cut out of some holograpgic mirri card and teamed them with a pad of 6x6 papers that came from Crafters Companion. I still have to add a sentiment to the fronts, once I've decided which one to use. As always Maureen will have a wonderful prize for the winner who is drawn at random at the end of the challenge and you only need to make one card to join in with the fun. I hope to see you over on the challenge blog.

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

80th Birthday Wishes

I have just completed an order for 5 cards all for the same person but from various family members and as this person is a friend I also made a 6th card myself. For this card I used Tattered Lace's Broken Edges collection. The artwork came as a download but no backing papers so I used MCS and one of the very many collection on there to pick a backing paper that went with the flowers. As I've used digital papers for this card I thought I would pop over and join in the fun at CD Sunday this week.

 I'm not sure what has happened but my camera seems to have made this card look as though it's curved top and bottom. Might have to invest in a new camera or pinch Hubby's.

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

Add Some Sparkle

I've been trying for weeks to tidy my messy Craft Room but keep getting side tracked. This card is the result of one such side track. I found this Lavinia cut out (cut on the Scan-n-cut) tucked away with some other pieces of card, so decided it was too good to just leave there. The background is one that I had already made (I keep a box with backgrounds readymade just in case I need one in a hurry) so it didn't take long to pop this together. As I've added glitter to the wings she's just right for joining in the fun a Stamping Sensations this month who what you to add some sparkle.

Off now to see how far I get with the clear up today, I wonder what I'll find to distract me.
