Rudolph Day - April

Hello Friends

Gosh it is coming towards the end of another month...where has April gone?  As it has past the 25th of the month it is time for Rudolph Day with my Buddy and fellow Playground Mate...Sandra.  

So without further ado here are my two cards which I have made.....

Now I have taken the photo I notice that the ribbon looks slightly wonky, so I have now remedied that!
Both cards have been made using my texture paste and metal stencils which I have had for some time.  The Tree stencil I had some time ago and I used to use an embossing tool to make the pattern.  Good grief!  The Santa stencil I have had for a while without ever using it!  Tut Tut!  I have used Snippets on these cards so shall be taking them to the Playground.  

I thought I would share a photo that I took off our Dobby the other morning, just as I was leaving the house for work!  Do you think he was tired?  Or hungover?

Well, I hope you have a great week.  I am looking forward to a nice long weekend next week.  This weekend has flown by and it has been a Great Weekend for me.  I undertook a quilting workshop on Saturday but not much else until a rush three cards tonight!  I will share them later int he week!

Love the way you made the raised image...did you sprinkle the texture paste with the glitter...I enlarged your card and it looks as if you did...?

Two lovely cards, would be hard to pick a favorite. Interesting to read you used the embossing paste...I've had some of that for a while, with some neat brass stencils..You just may have inspired me to hunt up the paste and try this. (If I can remember after I get all my visits & surfing caught up. LOL) TFS & great for you to have 2 more cards to add to your supply. Hugs
