Rudolph Day - March 2018

Well here we are another month has gone by and we are on to the third RD challenge of the year.
You can find all the details over at Scrappy Mo's blog here
You have till the 31st of March to enter a little bit longer than last month.

Only 4 this month, instead of my usual 5 as I ruined one and had no more of the backing paper left.
The stamp is an old Penny Black wooden stamp.
I stamped the image directly on the card base then cut the shape out of the patterned paper.
Oops just realised that I haven't put a sentiment on, idiot.

Really lovely day on Sunday, heating on first thing but then not until 9 p.m. BUT snow is forecast for Wednesday, hope they are wrong. Done enough 'Dashing through the snow' for one year.

Only 4! Shame on you Kath...I expect a lot more of you!! :))
However, I'll let it pass this month as it's such a super image and looks so fabulous framed in that lovely dp.
Hope we don't get any more should be spring now!

What a really fun image, and I may have to "borrow" your idea of cutting the frame from the paper! Happy RD, me too hopes the snow stays away xxx

We have "dashed" all we are interested in for this year. We are ready for gardening season and hope Mother Nature cooperates!

Your cards are so sweet, KAth. I like this Penny Black image. IT is really cute and your background paper is perfect with this image. i do not think we always need a sentiment...says the lady who always forget to leave room to put one on!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

Hi Kath, a gorgeous set of cards, love the stamp directly on the card with the frame cut out and glued down around the image, extra flat for postage. Have a wonderful week.. Megan

Kath said...

Fabulous cards Kath and a great idea to stamp on the card and then add the paper as a frame.

I was busy admiring your RD collection of cards and didn't notice that they were sans sentiment! I think it's pretty obvious they are for the festive period though!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Liz said...

Super cards, Kath. I love the fun image and the patterned paper you've chosen is perfect. xx

PB had some of the cutest wooden block stamps in days gone by. I think this one is just so cute & love those expressions. I like the way you've used that sparkle red paper to show off this happy group of critters following Santa. It doesn't really need a sentiment, actually! (IMHO). Yay for you at getting 4 for your stash too. TFS & Happy Easter.

Snow? More snow? Are you kidding me right now?! That's awful, Kath. What a winter you've had in the UK! Your sediment-free Rudy cards are so festive and fun! You have room in the upper right there for a small somethin' somethin'. Even a Hello would be cute, huh? That's what it looks like they are saying! Hugs, Darnell
