Happy Rudolph Day

Hello Peeps

Sorry I am late tonight but it was the last episode of the current NCIS series!  Oooo!  Want to see the next series now but am going to have to wait!  

Anyhoos!  Happy Rudolph Day to you all!  Only four more RDs left before the Big One!  Scarey!!

Here is card number one for you.....


I actually made two of these, similar but with different papers.  The other one was not very photogenic I am afraid.  The background paper I have had for soooo long and what was left was in the bottom of my Christmas paper box so I cut it up and now have none left.  All the other papers used were snippets too so I will be joining in at the Playground with these.

And here is card number 2 for you to see.....

This card is a little different in making it up.  The Silver Christmas Tree was actually cut out of one of last year's Christmas cards which was sent to us.  I stamped my lovely new Darkroom Door Christmas trees directly on the card with Black Soot DI and sprinkled some schparkly embossing powder, added the silver tree with foam pads and tied a little ribbon around to add a little texture to the card.  The Peace on Earth was also in my Darkroom Door set, stamped with Black Soot and schparkly embossing powder and mounted on a little piece of black card.

So some recycling and use of snippets and I have three more cards ready for Christmas. 

Fancy joining us with the Rudolph Day?  Just make a Christmas card and link it HERE in the next week and your name will be put into the draw for a set of stamps.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment so I know you have been.  Love comments.

Hugs

Love the cards - also love NCIS too - we have started watching that with the children ever since they did the cross over with Hawaii 50 (mind you we missed the second part - organised as ever!). I have posted the schedule for the Great British Blog Hop here http://www.sunshinegirlnicola.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/great-british-blog-hop-schedule.html if you have any questions get in touch - thanks for joining in!

The pine trees are rather lovely stamps, but I have a soft spot for gingerbread... make that a soft crumbly spot for gingerbread...
