It is time for Rudolph Day!!

Hello there!

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.  I was off to my Quilting Group today and there was a great buzz as we were preparing for our Exhibition which will take place in June.  If you are in South Wales on 6th or 7th June, please pop in.  I would love to meet you.  And of course you get to see some quilts from talented quilters.....and me!!

Rightio.  Onto today's subject matter.  Rudolph Day!  Yep - the 25th of the month has come round again!!  I swear these months are coming round quicker!  For those who are new to my blog, (where have you been?) on or around 25th of the month I take part in my Buddy's Rudolph Day where we make Christmas cards or similar, which means that when it comes to later on in the year we have got a head start for Christmas cards.  

So here is No. 1.......
No. 2....
No. 3.....
No. 4....
AND......No. 5!!!!
Wahoo!  Now the Rules state 2 cards must be made but I decided to make and show you 5 today.  Ooo I need to alter my tally on the sidebar!

Now if you are thinking you have seen these before, you are having a bit of deja vue, then you are completely right.  These are tags I made for the Funkie Junkie Christmas Tags Challenge in 2012!  I decided it was time they were used, so I mounted them onto cards using strong dsst, with some Christmas papers and some MB Holly die cuts using Snippets.  You know I like a bit of recycling! 

Can you believe that Puggles was sat next to no. 3 until I pressed the button on the camera?  He is sooooo shy!  

Well, I am off to share this with my Buddy Sandra.  I cannot share it with the Snippets Playground as Miss has shut the gates - boo hoo!  It is the weekend and not a school night!  Hurrumph!

Thanks for calling by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you are doing.

You have outdone yourself with 5 cards! And each a beauty! I wondered what people did with the tags. I put them on Christmas presents and my dear SIL threw them out with the wrappings. He's so helpful!

I did enjoy your tags, and I'm impressed at how you have turned them into such gorgeous cards. I never knew what to use tags for...I was just scrolling & enjoying and admiring! Great work you! Enjoy your quilt show. We used to hit the quilt shows (and fabric shops) until this stamp bug bit. Now we just store the fabric, and hit stamp stores & shows! Have a wonderful time, and hope you'll share some pictures with us. Nothing beats a lovely quilt. (well, maybe a lovely card, but usually the quilt has a lot more work & time!) TFS & Hugs
