Last Rudolph days I posted a card for July explaining I had been sidelined from creating cards as I broke my ankle I had a stash of off cuts that I made my card with well fast forward to August the word from the Dr was it is healing nicely but it's 4 to 6 weeks more in the air boot, which I am managing to get it off and back on for TV watching and bedtime, all other times it is on. So this month again I found a couple of digital images I had printed off and I managed to colour them (don't look too close) and then looked for scraps to finish the front, the process took a couple of days. Although the air boot is lighter than a plaster cast it's still heavy and in the way. Well with all that being said here is my simple offering for the August Rudolph days.

Hello my crafty friends it's time for the July edition of Rudolph Days. I haven't been crafting in over two weeks and it will be a bit longer. I had my knee fail me and I collapsed on the floor and broke my ankle it has been a bit of a trial as I did not want to stay so in order to come home I was fitted for an air boot and crutches and of course not to put a lot of weight on the broken ankle until the Dr. calls. I immediately knew I would not be able to take care of my Design Team duties, so they are shelved until I can put weight on my leg but on July 25th I realized I can't miss Rudolph days so knowing I had lots of off cuts, some coloured images etc. I could make one but it took me 2 days to glue it together.

Well slipping in with 1 1/2 hours to spare I finally got my card done for the Jingle Belles Rock challenge to use Stripes and/or Stars on your project. I had this card planned for almost the whole time the challenge was live, it just seemed everything was out to delay me, being retired I should have oodles of time to craft but between June 30 and July 10th I have 6 birthday cards to make along with two Grad cards, that being said I'm happy to get a Holiday card done, so here is my striped non-traditional coloured card.

Hello and welcome to the July's Happy little Stampers Christmas Challenge, hard to believe it's here so soon. The July challenge is Anything Goes and the option is Twinkle.
How can it be July already and how can it be Shopping Our Stash's 500th challenge!! Well to celebrate this occasion we want to see a celebration card with at least 1 number on it. Lots of occasions to celebrate at this time of the year....Graduation, Canada Day (July 1st), July 4th in the U.S.A. and of course lots of birthdays and anniversaries that you can add a number to. Since I have a great grandson heading to Grade one in the fall I made him a Grad card. I am in the process of making a card for his sister who will be entering high school in September. (it would be done but I changed my plan) Have a peek at the card I made.

Almost the end of June and I was scrambling to get my card done for the June Rudolph Days, I planned on an longer trip to the cottage this time and as always I never have all the equipment I need, not sure why I didn't think I needed sentiments but didn't have any, I also know when colouring small things I like my spica glitter pens, alas they are home so with some improvising I made a card.

Hello crafty peeps, I finally made a "non-design team card", it is for my 6 year old great grandson's birthday which was June13th (today as I'm writing this) It's hard to come up with a card when children are not involved in sports so I had a choice of a video gaming card or a Zombie card, the creeper card won as I couldn't locate my one an only zombie. I found the instructions HERE for the card on Pinterest.

It's a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and it's Let's Hear it for the Boys!! Create a project featuring a man or a masculine card for one of the men or boys in your life. So far in the last couple of weeks I've made 2 masculine cards one for a son and the other for a grandson and this challenge is made for my eldest grandson who is a coffee lover, and I still have two more to get ready, one for the youngest grandson and one for my great grandson. It does feel good to know I am keeping up with the family birthdays.

How can it be June already? And we are having Summer weather and I am not happy that it is the high 20s and it feels hotter. So what can you do during a heatwave? well here is an idea to cool off ~~ get started on your Christmas/Holiday cards. Make a snowy scene, stamp a snowman, make it into a snowball fight then add it to the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge, If you don't want to use the option of make a scene then just go with the Anything Goes option.
