Allsorts meets Rudolph

We have another challenge for you over at Allsorts and it is the turn of the lovely Ellie to host and she has chosen the theme of....
Inspired by your favourite Christmas Carol or Song.

It is also the final Rudolph Day for 2017 over at ScrappyMo's
Now I suppose I could have used this card for R.D. but didn't realise that they came on the same day so my R.D. cards are further down

Our sponsor this week at Allsorts is Tattered Lace with this lovely prize.

A little lonely Robin.

The image is from a Magazine years ago.

But really my all time favourite Christmas song is Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty McCall .... but try and make a card with that one, I gave up.

Now for my Rudolph Day card.
Can't tell you what the prize is yet as this may go live before Mo's

These are for my Grandson's Teachers cards
Gold mirri card cut with Lil'Inkers square stitched die.
Memory Box - Plush Poinsettia corner die - cut in gold and then red mirri card.
In-laid the red into the gold
The two flowers at the end are from Poppystamps small blooming Poinsettia.

Sorry for the long post but good to be able to kill two birds with one stone?

Have a good week and huge thanks to Mo and Team for another year of running the R.D challenge.

Hi Kath, not sure what is going on with the comments on my blog, I haven't changed any settings at all, but have noticed other changes Google must have made. Please don't worry if you can't comment. Have a wonderful weekend.. Megan
