Rudolph Day is here again !



A whole month since we were celebrating Christmas and here I am starting on Christmas cards again. It's time for Rudolph Day Challenge once again, many thanks to Maureen for running this challenge that gets us making a head start on our cards.  My card is made entirely from bits and pieces left over from earlier card making. I have two boxes, one with Christmas die cuts and the other with stamped images and off cuts of paper etc, everything left over from my card making marathons gets swept into these boxes, this year I am intending on trying to get them used up! The Lily Of The Valley snowman was already stamped and coloured on a stitched square, mounted on a fleur des lis square die cut from a scrap of glitter card, the die cuts were in the box and the DP was also a left over piece. I feel quite virtuous when I've used up scraps ! As well as Rudolph Day I'd like to enter my card into

The Merry Christmas Challenge  - Anything goes / option of ornaments
 and

Pixies Playground - I've used loads of snippets

  4. Hi Joan! First of all, many thanks for your lovely comment about the card I made for Edward's Birthday!

    I love your RD card - it really is so sweet and lovely frosty colours too! That snowman is one of the cutest ever!

    Why not coma back and join in with us in the Snippets Playground as you used loads of scrap/snippets. You'd be really welcome - and these days the challenge runs for a fortnight at a time - to make life easier for me!

  11. A great card Joan. I love the tall skinny die cut trees, and the snowmen always make me smile. It is good to use up some of those bits isn't it. I am sure we all have boxes like yours and all to often they get forgotten, so well done for putting some of your to such good use. Kate x
