A Shiny-Nosed Rudolph - A Snippet Card

Hello Everyone ...

... from a very rainy Ayr :(

How's it for you wherever you are? I hope it's better than what we have here.

I've been working on some scrap layouts that I'm not ready to share yet but I did use a few leftover scraps to make this wee card.

A quick and simple card - enough left over brown card to make a base measuring 4" square, some left over Kraft Kuts ledger design paper; a snippet of red card, cut to a pennant shape, and a couple of KanBan Christmas Cuties toppers. The holly, from Inkdinkado Holiday set, is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

I added some red glitter to Rudolph's nose as a finishing touch.

Another candidate for Di's Snippet Challenge #36  ... she's off on her jollies, so goodness knows what is going on in the playground at the moment but I'm sure that's the sound of a hammer and a saw I can hear :))

And that's almost it for the day, except it should be noted that the EM has abandoned me for the weekend. He has gone to visit his sister in Manchester and left me to my own devices ... well, he has left The Boss to keep me company. Huh! Much company she is, so far she's done nothing but snooze the day away!

But before he hit the highways, byways and motorways, DH donned his overalls and put up this display shelf in the craft space.

Brilliant! It's especially for displaying some of the lovely cards I've received over the last year or so of blogging. There's space underneath for tags I've received or created too.

Now, that really is it for me today.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy Crafting,
