Finally finished my card for Sarn's February Rudolph Day.
On the 25th of each month, Sandra from Stamping for Pleasure hosts the Rudolph Day Challenge. You have from the 25 till the end of the month to get your Christmas card submitted. There is a limit of one card and you can combine with up to 5 other challenges.
Sometimes there is a prize...this month it is a set of 2 lovely stamps. Mainly, it is a place to ensure you get at least a card finished a month and fellowship with a like minded group of paper crafters!
This month I wanted to create a card that included one of my recent thrift shops finds. I used a 25th wedding invitation from a 15 cent 3 pack! I die cut the number 25 to include the lovely oval scroll pattern that surrounded it. I even saved the reverse image as I think I could find a way to work that into another Christmas card.
This was a fun card to make but seemed to take forever as we have had a busy week. I had other cards on the go and everything seemed to be 75% finished and not getting any further along! Do you ever have days like that?
I was stalling getting them finished as I am a bit behind on visiting some blogs and tried to do a catch up this week. I like to page back and look at everything I have missed and leave comment on them too, so it can get a bit time consuming. Note to self...stay caught up!!!
