Here's ....Rudolph

Yep, it's that time of the month again 25th August  - Rudolph Day over at Scrappy Mo's.

I think the red backing card is SU - Real Red
Papers - LOTV - Nit Wits from the Festive Trimmings Pad
Rudolph is a Woodware stamp
Stamped onto a brown paper bag and paper pieced for the face, no way could I colour such a vast space, I have lots of brown paper bags that I have saved from buying items from my local craft shop.

The rest is coloured with Promarkers.
Christmas ribbon - Docrafts.

On my first attempt I did put glossy accents on the nose but it was a tad over the top.
I have also wondered if I should put more embellishments on the card but decided against it, cheapskate I know

I stamped the image on to a snippet of white card stock so this is also going into the Snippets Playground week 191 can you believe it.

Only 3 more Rudolph Days to Christmas.

That was the week, that wasn't

Well I may not have posted anything for a while but I certainly have been doing my bit for paper re-cycling.

I think I may have started with Hay Fever as I have been sneezing for England and my nose has been running faster than Usain Bolt.

This is a card I made for my Sister's birthday, I think I may have posted one before, but in pink

Sentiment - peel off letters, coloured purple.
All of the dies are either Memory Box or Poppy Stamps.
 Distressed Inks to colour the dies.

My Grandson's are back from their month in Australia and they have loved it and think we all should move there, I have told them that the grass is always greener on the other side and they would still have to go to school if we all moved there, life will not be a holiday. Lovely to have them back.

So this is going into Pixies Snippets Playground 189,  I do have lots and lots of white snippets which really do come in handy for cards like this.
Been posting this for the last 3 days and now running through the gates at the last minute.

Stamped directly on to the DP
I have sticky pads on the sentiment as I thought the card looked a little flat.

I have seen this stamp since it was first released and thought, shall I, no, yes, no and finally went for it, but i have to admit I had a real shock when it arrived, it was far bigger than I anticipated and luckily enough I did have a block big enough, I wonder why they are making some stamps so big these days!
Well this is a first for me, first time I have entered 4 challenges in one go, isn't it hard work!

While writing this post I am listening to an interview by Johnny Walker with Cilla Black and they are now playing her version of You're My World, I have to say that there is a far better version of this around somewhere and I have a strange feeling that my Sister may have it. Yes it was me in one of those boxes that you could go in and make a record. Ah, my Mother used to say I was a good singer, before tunes came out.
