March Rudolph Days

It's time again for the next Rudolph Days challenge, that time where we make a card ready for Christmas which at the moment seems so far away. But we all know how it creeps up on us. Maureen has a wonderful prize ready for the person who will be drawn at random at the end of the Challenge. So pop on over and join in the fun this Month, just one card is all it takes. For my card (cards) this month I've been looking on the internet for Snowmen images and I found four different designs that I've turned into cards. Four designs and four cards of each design, that makes 16 cards to add to my growing stash ready for December. I've added the sentiment to the card using my Graphics program.

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

Something New

Now for something new. Just before my trip to Cornwall at Half Term along with 5 crafty friends, I went to a workshop held by Ali Reeve from Stamps Away. We had a wonderful day learning how to Glass Fuse using a small kiln and a Microwave. We each had a space along with various pieces of glass and some tools, also 2 small Kilns and a Microwave so there was no waiting in a line to use equipment. The whole day went by so quickly and we all came away happy with what we had made. I've added a bail to each of three of my makes which I hope to turn into necklaces and there are a couple of the smaller pieces that I would like to make into rings. I just need to find out where to buy the settings for them. If you want to try something new like this it's well worth taking a look at Ali's Website she does some very interesting workshops and reasonable too. Two of the friends returned home and have bought small kilns and a spare Microwave and have continued to glass fuse. As much as I would love to be able to do that I must admit to hoarding far too much craft stash already so have no room for anything else.
