July Rudolph Days Challenge

July brings the announcement of our next four Rudolph Days Challenge design team members. In no particular order, may I present...

Pat @ Colourful Card Creations

Hi, I'm Pat and I live in the South West of England, and I would like to say a big thank you to Mo for
including me on her design team. I have always been creative and enjoy painting, knitting,crochet,
and needle craft. About eleven years ago, I made a few cross stitch cards and so began my love of card making. Four years ago, I started stamping and using inks, which led me to start my blog. I love trying new techniques, and dies and embossing folders are always fun to use. Mostly my cards are fairly clean and simple, with minimal embellishment.


Pat has made this pretty snowflake wreath card complete with a lovely embossed background.  I love the stitched kraft mat the wreath sits on!

Greta of GG Creations

My name is Greta, I'm a registered Nurse (almost retired!) and living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my hubby of 36 years and our Standard Schnauzer, Fritz. I discovered stamping nearly 20 years ago starting with Christmas cards and was immediately hooked! I love elegant, uncluttered designs, but also like to try a variety of techniques and styles. I began my blog, 4 years ago and enjoy the friendships I've made all over the world through this wonderful hobby. I'm so honored to  be guest designing for the Rudolph Days Challenge.



Greta has cut this beautiful poinsettia from felt. I love the look of it and now want to give felt a try myself!      

                              

Hi, I'm Andrea, but some of you know me by my crafty name of KandA. I live in the East Midlands of England with my hubby, have a grown son and daughter, and became a granny earlier this year. I've been crafting in some form or another all my life. Since starting my blog back in 2012, I've met some wonderful like-minded and very talented friends who give me so much inspiration and encouragement. I'm thrilled to be joining the Rudolph Days design team and can't wait to visit you and see all your super creations.


KandA's card features such a vintage looking Santa, it makes me smile with memories of my youth. That was the Santa of my childhood! This lovely card has great traditional colours!


My name is Jenny Lawrence.
I have tried most types of craft, but discovered paper  crafting about 18 years ago, and as they say, I became hooked.
I started my blog nearly 4 years ago to share my ideas and creations with other like-minded people.
I would like to thank Maureen for having me as one of her design team for the second half of the year.



Jenny has made this lovely easel card with a beautiful poinsettia image! Amazing how that bow is the exact shade of the poinsettia.
