Rudolph Days October Challenge.

 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.

Yes you are seeing double? yes check it out HERE, I used the same paper and #SUYSOct2023 sketch for my last card, it works perfectly with the Stampendous Mini acrylic stamps that because they are so adorable I have quite the collection.  Although the sheetload will make 8 cards there are instructions for making a single card. I found the fair sized scrap of this double sided paper in my stash and since both images I used had candy canes it worked perfectly. 

The finished inside of the card  with scraps left over from the front. 

I'm adding this to:

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned I love this sketch and have lots more cute mini steamps to use. and of course mega scraps too. 

Creature Feature!!

 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. 

Now there is cute critter overload with the adorable penguin, don't you just love a cute penguin with a candy cane. This sheetload of cards tutorial will make 8 cards with minimal paper but there are instructions for making a single card too. 

Finished the inside with a favourite sentiment and a couple of left over screaps.

I see a spot on the center of the card and just realized I think my camera lens needs a cleaning. 
Mission accomplished hope that works.

Time to Colour your World!!

 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. 

And here is my offering for the challnege.

It's been a long time since I have made a mini slimline card, I used my favourite stamp company stamps "House Mouse Designs" I chose a sketch from Sheetload of Cards January 2023 I love this design I did change it to a horizontal card as the flowers trailed too far off the side. The patterned paper is from Photoplay both sides of the double sided paper was used,   it is only 7 months old but the gold birthday sticker is ancient. 

Finished the inside with some scraps of patterned paper and the perfect sentiment to match the slimline card. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will pick at lest 3 colours and join in the fun.

Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ~~ October

 Hello fellow crafters I hope you are ready for the new challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge,  I have been unable to craft very much since July due to a broken ankle, it's not easy to wield the Air Boot around especially since you are not supposed to put a lot of weight on it the first 7 weeks but we have graduated to more weight but I take my time and do a little every day until one is done. That being said here is my 4 day card.

Now here is my "stencil" card

Before I had my tumble I had printed 4 digital images from Bugaboo Stamps and boy it has been a lifesaver to have them ready to colour, I am not very proficient with stencils I have a few but I rarely use them but the sone I used is snowflake dots which I used some paste on, I would have preferred an inked background but went with a white on white, I coloured (not well) and fussy cut and tucked in behind a snowbank. Simply done and made flat for mailing.

Thanks for looking today and head over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the design team have made for your inspiration. 

Be honest how may noticed my image did not have her hair coloured, there were a few ideas from friends I showed my card to, one it was SNOW d the second said prematurely white alas i was a "guess I ne new glassess" problem I didn't notice it even when it was on my blog, but now looking at it there i still a small section I missed, 12 weeks of not crafting has affected my attention to detail now here is my almost corrected image.

Thanks again for stopping by.
