May Rudolph Day

I am honoured to have been asked to be the guest designer for this months Rudolph Day over at ScrappyMo's

 I have been working on Ethan's classmates cards, Austin's all done and dusted and so are these now.

4 x 4 cardstock, no idea of the make but really good quality card but didn't fold at all well.
Woodware - Little Red Robin stamp, love it.
Paper pieced with various bits and pieces of card and papers
Glossy accents on the berries and eye.
Computer generated sentiment.
SU punch

I really sort of wish I had glossed the holly leaf and beak too, but hey it is for 10 year old's.
Just to prove I have done a batch here is another photo but still couldn't get them all on.

Ok, if you picked up on the 'various bits and pieces' you will realise that these Robin's are swooping down to the Snippets Playground. Hope they don't scare Parsnip.
Been a mad week here, one way and another.

Oh a gentle reminder that there are only 6 more Rudolph Days to Christmas.

While typing this I am listening to Song for Europe, well not too sure how Australia managed to get into Europe, must have been since my Daughter became an Australian citizen last year, bring back Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson, I say.

Happy Rudolph Day to you all and look forward to seeing your entries.

Hi Kath,
oh these are so gorgeous.
I love that fab Robin stamped image, and your wonderful paper piercing.
You grandchildren must be so proud to have a wonderful Gran who makes these astounding creations for them.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.


Love this Robin stamp Kath - brilliant paper-piecing, as always , and WOW what a huge batch of cards you made! Time to get your feet up, with a glass of wine!
Have a lovely Bank Holiday - Sylvia xxx

Woozwes...the field of paper pieced birdies is so impressive. You are such a talented Grandma!!

Thank you for being my guest designer this month at the Rudolph Days Challenge..

Chris said...

Fabulous design Kath, the cute paper pieced robin is gorgeous, he doesn't need extra fiddly bits surrounding him, the red layer frames him to perfection! You have infinite patience to make so many cards of the same design, I have tried to make a batch like this in the past but always failed miserably by going off on a tangent and complicating the design! You'll be finished your Christmas cards again this year before I even start mine!
Congrats on your GDT spot... it's the perfect challenge for you!

Sue B said...

Oh Wow… you have been busy Kath… love these cute little robins… the glossy accents look fab on the eye and berries! :-)
hope you're having a good weekend!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, crud, Kath. You had me smiling from ear-to-ear at this fat and happy and brilliantly paper-pieced robin and gasping at the array of ALL those cards you've done and then ... thud.

I am now deeply depressed over the reminder. I must go have a lie-down. Please don't let Christmas come any closer while I'm napping. Thank you. Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell

Sally H said...

Wow, Kath! What a wonderful batch of cards! I love them! Excellent use of snippets too. Thanks for visiting me and your lovely comment x

Hettie said...

A flock of Robins....Yeay!!!!
Great cards there Mrs!! You been a busy bunny!!

MaryH said...

Kath, just saw this beautiful bird over at Rudy Day, and knew before I saw the GD name, that it had your signature! So delightful. Not just the awesomely cute image, but the way you've done the details. It didn't need the glossing at all. Gosh, you're a great Granny to do all these for your little ones. I know they love it too! TFS & Hugs

SARN said...
