Rudolph Day Card - February 2019

Hello Everyone

Happily I've managed to make my first Rudolph Day card this year - I was so sad to miss Maureen's challenge over at Scraps of Life last month.
The design was prompted by the plaid patterned paper that was leftover from an earlier project.

Supplies used:

  • a white 5" square card base
  • scraps of patterned paper from Those Characters from Cleveland (2012)
  • leftover scraps of red and white card
  • paper backed hessian from a mixed media pad - American Craft's Dear Lizzy 'New Day' collection (2018)
  • the felt Scottie Dog embellishment from The Works
  • greeting stamp from Sweet Sentiments set - a freebie with Issue 9 of Love Cardmaking (2019)
  • ink - Memento's Rhubarb Stalk Dew Drop pad
  • embellishments - red/white twine and white enamel dots

As well as submitting it to ScrappyMo's Rudolph Day challenge, I'm submitting the card to the following two challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 346

I was reminded of the felt Scottie dog embellishments by an item in the TV news yesterday stating that Scottie dogs are becoming an endangered breed. 
Seems they are considered old-fashioned so there isn't the demand for them that there once was. Such a shame. Perhaps being in the news will help save our Scottie dogs. I do hope so.

I really like the scottie card-I also bought the wee dogs ftom the Works. Hamish’s first outing was to Ayr last Friday in our new moho but he was a naughty bear and had yo stay in while we went to Panfora’s for delicious coffee and scones. We walked the Lang Mile both ways to work off the scones!!

Goodness Elizabeth, I didn't know that the Scotties were endangered, how awful as they are lovely wee dogs. Anyway, your card is quite lovely, the papers are fabulous, Kate x

The plaid papers perfectly suit the adorable Scottie! I didn’t know they were endangered either; who wouldn’t want a cutie like this? Thank you so much for playing along with the Rudolph Days challenge.

Adorable card Elizabeth! I so agree about wee Scotties - I can't see them not being as popular, why ever would that be? They epitomise Scotland for me!

Mo didn't run Rudolph Days in January as she thought she's be having her knee op. So, even though we missed out on a month, so long as we still join in with all the other months the challenge does run then we're in the hat fro the end of year draw - as well as having a few more Christmas cards done and dusted of course!
