Rudolph Day - August 2019

Can't believe it, can you? another Rudolph Day has arrived and only three more left for this year.
So get your skates on and pop over to ScrappyMo's and join in the fun.

Stained Glass Candles by Woodware.
and card No. 2

For my card I have chosen to use a new stamp, yes I did vow not to buy anymore Christmas stamps this year but I have to say that I have only bought this one and do not intend to buy anymore, well unless I see some on sale later in the year!? Oh and I forgot to mention I also bought two Penny Black Christmas Stamps, well a girl can change her mind, can't she? [love the use of the word 'girl'.]

Well I have not done them as stained glass but paper pieced them instead just so I could get rid of  use up some very old Christmas papers
Computer generated sentiment and SU punches.
I have actually made eight of these cards but the others will be shown at a later date using different papers.
Thought I would just test the waters with these two samples.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Have a good week.

Both look beautifully paper pieced Kath and can see why this was a must have stamp. And of course we are girls, that's what keeps us young at heart.

What are we like . I must admit to purchasing some Christmas Woodware stamps yesterday but
I didn’t see this one on display.!! A few other stamps fell off their hangers into my basket plus a cat stamp that the kind lady (on seeing my cat piny ) pointed out to me just as
I got to the check out desk so of course it would have been so rude not to have added to my basket.
Like what you have done with this stamping your card. Hugs Mrs A.
