Rudolph Day in July...Already!!!!!!

Hello there Peeps

It is 25th of July and so time for Rudolph Day with my mate Sandra.  This month seems to have come round sooo quick...or is it me?

Without further ado here are my cards...

I used a piece of stripey DCWV paper for the backround which I found loitering in the Christmas Snippets basket, some red bazzill, a little snippet of silver card and then topped with a stamping of my NBUS Penny Black stamp that a Special Friend bought me for my birthday last month!  I coloured it in with Copics..

And some more...

I stamped the image twice, once onto white card and again on the VOS background paper.  The stampings on white card I coloured in with Copics again, cut them out and then using the stamping on the background paper, I adhered them using foam pads.  The turquoise glitter card which I used to cut the MB music and Sizzix corners is the last of the K&Co paper I had.  Such a shame as it cut beautifully.  The bronze glitter is another make, but again Snippets.  The little rosettes are also K& Co which are all gone now.  A little doodling round the edge and hey presto four more cards in the tin.

So.  You know what you need to do now don't you?  Leave a comment in the box below then go and make two Christmas cards and join in with the Rudolph Day Challenge and if you use Snippets you get to join in with the Snippets Playground.  We have a virtual playground and a little smallholding with chickens.  Oh yes and a pond!

I am also going to join in with Craftyhazelnut's Anything Goes! 

One more thing...to the Special person who bought me this stamp...Thank You once again!  You know me so well that I would like a Christmas stamp for my birthday in June!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for popping over.

These are so fab! Love this Penny Black stamp...it is so darned cute.
I loved the first two...the nice bright background gives such a cheery, festive feeling.

The second set have such a lovely vintage feel. It is lsuch a different look than the first set, eve n though the image is the same.K&Co is one of my fave embellishment manufacturers.

Will let Mr Scrappymo know about his fishing reservations!!!

Oooh, I love the one where you cut out the letters and ducks. So adorable and goes very well with the musically die cut.

That is a gorgeous stamp! I am loving the PB ducks and chickens - there is just something about them that makes me smile.
The glitter paper is stunning and all four of these cards are gorgeous! Hope you have a lovely weekend Karen x

Aw these are so cute! I can't decide which set I like best but I'm leaning towards the second, vintagey looking ones.
I have bits if leftover K&Co hoarded, must dig them out!

I was desperately trying to remember where I had seen those papers recently! I actually had stamped the image on Monday and Monday evening went through my snippets and 'freebie' papers before I started to colour and found those beautiful papers! Thank you for the lovely comments Karen xx

Ah-DOR-able! I love these little geese and this is the first stamp I've seen with the little fellas in spelling words. So very cute. Love your design and all the pretty papers you've dressed up these little critters in their delightful background. TFS & Hugs
