November Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

Sorry that I am so late posting the winner. We had Al's 70 Bday party last weekend. It was a lot of work but went off beautifully. We had a lot of fun spending time with our friends and family.

This weekend I went to a Scrapbook crop. Boy oh Boy, do I need to find a better way to sort out what to take and pack accordingly! I took way too much stuff.

As I do not know h0w to post on my blog using my phone, so could not post from the crop.

We had 43 entries and I used Random org to draw the winner, Number 7 Suzanne H. Suzanne, please drop me an email with your mailing address.

This month I will post the Extra Prize challenge for those who have entered every challenge this year. That post will go live on Dec 15th. The design team members also qualify to enter this prize draw if they have entered the challenge on their "off" months. You will have till Dec 31 to enter. You do not need to post a card to enter, just add your name to the link. Watch for this post on Dec 15th! The winner will be announced early in January.

November Rudolph Days Challenge

It is once again time for the Rudolph Days Challenge. You have till midnight on the last day of this month to enter a Christmas themed card or project. Remember to leave a comment on this post and perhaps visit a couple of the other entries, just for the fun of it!

Jenny is first up with two cards for our inspiration! The first is a very sweet gnome themed card. Gnomes are sure popular and Jenny's card are aways a treat. Her grouping of gnomes with falling snow look so lovely. I really like the sentiment greeting with the glitter card insert behind.
Jenny's second card is a fun, cheery card that brings instant memories of sitting with a treasured friend sharing a cuppa and a gingerbread cookie. I am sure ready to do that again this year! I hope you will pop over to Jenny's blog and leave her some love. If you do, you will get to see what wonderful ideas she has used for the inside of her cards. Jenny always makes the inside just as lovely as the fronts!

I have made up three scenic cards. I had three already stamped images left in my unfinished drawer. I tried various sky backgrounds with chalk, and chose to leave two of the cards uncoloured apart from the sky. The third card I coloured up with copic green shades and then matted them all with a mirri card mats. The background treed design paper is unknown as it was selected a long time ago when these images originally went into the unfiinished pile. I have managed to lose the scrap of paper I had the manufacturer on. Even the sentiments were chosen from my already stamped or unused sentiment packets.

Our prize this month is this Spellbinders Christmas Blooms cutting die.

October Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

Well, we had 42 fabulous entries! So far, I have made it round to visit about a third of the entries. Did not get any further as I had my left shoulder injected with steroid this week. I will then get the right side done on Nov 8th, and shortly after, I should be feeling one heck of a lot better. I actually had a card made to post, but was trying not to type too much, so left it off...

I used Random Org to choose our winner #41 Irene M.
Irene, please drop me an email to and let me know your mailing address.
