Happy Rudolph Day Folks

Ahoy Peeps!  Happy Rudolph Day to y'all!  

Before I start today's posting I would like to say "Hi" to my new followers.  I really love to have you join me on my blog and hope you like what I do.  This is great, I go away on holiday and come back to new Peeps following me.  Brilliant!  Maybe I should go away on holiday more often!!  
Rightio!!  For those of you who do not know what Rudolph Day is it means that it is the 25th of the month and my friend Sandra started a "thing" off for making a Christmas card on the 25th of every month.  In the latter months of 2011 I started to join her and a few others followed and now Sandra has a Rudolph Day with Mr Linky and everything!  Feel free to join in with us as it runs up to the end of the month so you still have 4 days to dust your Christmas papers and embellishments off and get ready nice and early for Christmas!  Incidentally, I had a stapler thrown at me in work for mentioning the "C" word yesterday - can you believe it?  She will be sorry when she is running around like a headless chicken in December!!

Here are mine......

I used some new Banana Frog stamps that I bought in their recent sale, some Ranger Archival ink and copic pens for the baubles.  They should have been very quick to do but you know how things go.... the bauble ones were stamped lots several times until I was happy with them.  And that blue thread is an absolute sw  very awkward to control!  The tree card went brilliantly in less than 10 mins though - swings and roundabouts ey!

I just love the way the glossy accents has made a glossy bubble over the baubles.  I hope you can see it on this picture.

I did actually stamp enough bits of cards to make 10 cards, but only managed two last night, but at least they are ready to go ahead and make. 

Don't forget to link up with Sandra.



P.S.  Well done the boys in Red.  You have done Wales proud today! Da Iawn!!

Hi Sam - two great cards for Rudolph days and I did chuckle at the tale of the problems you encountered making the first. I also like the effect of the glossy accents. Don't follow the game myself but glad to hear the boys in red have done good :) Elizabeth x

"Where is Wales exactly"!!! Good thing that Di is only in charge of the playground and not the school!! I've stamped and coloured a couple of images ready for Rudolph Day, hope to get them finished soon. Love your too, I love the glossy accented baubles on the tree, and yes, something that looks really simple to do invariably isn't!!
