I am unusually early with a card for Rudolph Days but there is a reason......I decided to try a new technique with a new product, well it really wasn't going well when I finished "playing" I was covered in mica spray all three colours that I have and I really was disappointed in the purple as it didn't have a lot of shine, and I shook it well too. Now I never trow my fails out (unless they are really bad) and when I saw a post what do you have on your craft table the "fail" was there including the silver die cut I had planned on using and when I looked at it the green "fail" didn't look too bad so I finished it and I like how it came together. I am sure I just need practice using sprays. So there is my story about why I'm early to Rudolph Days.

I finally found some time to craft, and first thing on the agenda was the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge "a Hard Candy Christmas. My card was decided on when I first saw the prompt over a week age but making it had to take a back burner to appointments and other boring thing, I at least have it done the day before the challenge linky closes.

Challenge #509 is Emboss like a Boss we want to see dry embossing or wet embossing bonus points for using both. I love my embossing folders and although I have a couple of 3D folders for this challenge I used a regular folder for a new to me technique using a music folder and since we are shopping our stash some metallic rub on set that is at least 15 years old, one of the colours didn't work but the rest was nice and creamy, and the embossing folder I'm guessing at least 10 years young.

Here I am sneaking in the last day of October (Happy Halloween} Rudolph days is the only challenge I have manage to keep up each month during the summer "break" Nice to be back. So here is what I came p with for this month.
Finally after a long three months I'm back catching up with my holiday cards with the Jingle Belles Rock. I love all their prompts and it has been hard not to add cards to their blog and now I have at least 6 cards to play catch up with. Well I have a bunch (depends on your idea of a bunch) of mini acrylic stamps from Stampendous and they are all perfect for #SUYSOct2023 at Sheetload of Cards by Crafty Al.

Hello friends I'm finally back to making cards for Shopping Our Stash challenges and what a challenge for my first one back.....a COLOUR challenge and as you know I'm terrible at colour challenges especially if there are too many choices but for this one I lucked out with on piece of 6 X 6 paper from Photoplay. The colour choices might be numerous but you only need to use at least 3 of them.
