Rudolph Day - November 2014

Hello Everyone

Unbelievably we have reached the last Rudolph Day of the year and, what's more, today is Sarn's Final Rudolph Day Challenge! When I first joined in with this challenge the requirement was to make just one card, challenge enough you might think, but this year Sarn, hard task-master that she is, upped the challenge by asking us to make at least two cards each month. Most months, admittedly sometimes with a bit of struggle, I've managed to comply but I thought for this most auspicious occasion I'd go totally mad :) So here we go ...





 




... SIX cards!!!  All made using the Festive Flourish card kit that came free with last month's Papercraft Inspiration magazine, together with tons of snippets and loads of embellishments from the stash mountain.

Next year Maureen, ScrappyMo, is taking over the challenge so I'd just like to say a big thank you to Sarn for hosting Rudolph Day up to now ... I think I speak for all of us when I say her hard work has been much appreciated! A trawl through this blog reveals that I started participating way back in February 2012 and it's been a total pleasure, not least because it means that each year since I've reached December with a lovely stash of Christmas cards all ready to use :) 

Whilst I'm at it I'd like to submit this little bunch of cards to the following:

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November, where it's always 'Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas Themed'.

Pixie's Snippets Playground - I managed to use snippets somewhere on all the cards

Happy Rudolph Day and Happy Crafting,

Well done Elizabeth. What a lovely set of cards. It is good to see a magazine give-away being put to good use. They so often get shelved and forgotten. These were certainly worth using. Kate x

I've been scrolling back catching up on a few of your blog posts, Elizabeth. I don't know how I got so far behind and I'm sorry for that! Your cards are all fabulous and, wow, six of them!

I really love that little plant stand table you found for your pretty holly berries. I can't believe people abandon such exquisite pieces like that!! I wish you a happy WOYWW from your post today. (I'm still too far behind with my own Christmas cards to play along, shame on me!) Keep in touch! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
