Gosh, is it really 25th January 2014 already? Our first Rudolph Day of 2014? How did we get here so quick?
Those of you who have been on my blog around this time of the month will know that I usually join in with my friend Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge. Why not join in? It is a great way of building up the Christmas card stash without the mad panic at the end of the year, especially as Sandra now wants us to make two cards each month.
So without further ado here are mine......
And here they are individually.....
Isn't this die adorable? It is a Memory Box die that I bought after Christmas with some Christmas money. I cut it from a Snippet of MME paper that happened to be near the front of the basket. The background I had embossed before Christmas and I just cut it down using a Spellbinders die. A little bit of sparkly twine, some Stickles, doodling and a TH Chit Chat sticker and a card was born.
Same idea but on a patterned background and a plain cream wreath, all cut from Snippets. This is actually Mr Hettie's favourite of today's batch.
I fell in love with this Memory Box holly die when I was at my friend's house in November and took the opportunity to cut myself a couple (I always carry a little plain card just in case). I didn't use them because I forgot where I had put them safe. (I had put them in the SU box that held these stamps!) The ribbon was left on my desk from another project that I was experimenting with the other day, which was too wide for that but perfect for this one. The cream labels were punched from scraps and stamped with Aged Mahogany DI and embossed, as were the Hero Arts greetings. You can see that I used two different creams here. The top card has an extra piece of more of the Basic Grey paper. The bottom panels are from the DCWV pad. And I added some Stickles to them both too. Santa must have heard that I really liked this die as he arranged for me to have one too, so expect to see it feature a fair bit this year.
All four cards were corndered with a We R Memory Keepers Chomper.
Thats all from me today folks. I have my quilting group now and then Robbie Burns Dinner tonight where I will be dancing the Flora MacDonald's Fancy as a solo! Hope I don't
cock mess it up! Happy Burns Day to all my Scottish friends.
I am also linking this up with the Snippets Playground and CHCC. Don't forget you have until Friday to make some cards and join in with Rudolph Day!
