November Rudolph Days

It  is time for the November Rudolph Days Challenge. Take a quick peek at the rules if you please...

1. The Rudolph Days Challenge will start each month on the 25th, and will close at midnight PST, on the last day of that month.
2. The theme is always Anything Goes, as long as it is Christmas.
3. One entry per person and you just need to enter one Christmas card or Christmas project.
4. You may combine your entry with other challenges (maximum of 10 in total).
5. Your card (or Christmas project) should not have been previously posted to your blog. It should be posted to your blog during the current months Rudolph Days Challenge, (between the 25th and last day of the current month)
6. Please link back to or at least mention, the Rudolph Days Challenge.
7.  Prizes will be shipped anywhere in the world.
8. The winner will be selected by random draw and announced on the first day of the following month.

Our designers have been very busy making sure you have lots of creative inspiration. In no particular order we have....

Greta @ GG Creations has made this stunning white wreath card. Love the way the white ink pops against the red background



Jenny @ Cardsarus has made a lovely card with a vintage feel. These Graphic 45 papers are so pretty.


KandA @ KandA Creative Moments has used such a sweet House Mouse image. The blue and silver colours featured here are so peaceful looking.


Pat @ Colourful Card Creations has such a pretty bauble on a beautifully inky background.


Sorry, but I do not have a card this month.

Between burning my left hand quite badly and the slicing my index finger knuckle on my right hand, I am very behind with cardmaking, visiting and commenting on your blogs. My knuckle is nearly better but still sore enough to require antibiotics. I want it healed before Christmas baking season begins, so have been resting it...I will get round to visit everyone as soon as I am able.

This is our last Rudolph Days Challenge of the year as January 2017 will be our next challenge date!
Hope your Christmas card stash has grown a little as you have played along with this challenge.

Merry Christmas to you all and see you in the New Year.

The prize this month is this  Memory Box Deer Trio die.

  1. Praying for you dear Mo, sorry indeed you've hurt yourself at such a busy time.
    I broke my right arm, right foot and had right thigh emergency surgery all in December in various years so know what it's like!!
    May our dear faithful God encourage you and lift your heart up to Him for your Strength of heart through each day.
    Thanks for sharing in spite of all your struggles!!

  2. Fabulous DT cards Mo. I just realised that all your DT are also Playground Playmates too. Such a talented bunch.

    So glad you're able to post this time, been worried. Here's hoping your recovery from that nasty accident continues and that you're fine for Christmas.

    Hugs

  4. I do hope your hand heals quickly now, and the antibiotics work their magic. It is bad enough having one hand out of action, without injuring the second one two. Your design team have done you proud this month, and has made some beautiful cards. Thank you for hosting this challenge all year. It is so good to have an incentive to make christmas items all through the year. Have a lovely Christmas, with or without all the usual baking. hugs Kate x

  20. OH dear oh dear, me again Mo, if anyone could mess up it had to be me. I entered my card (entry 16) and not sure how a second one generated (no 17) with an old post on my blog.

    So so sorry, but I can't find a way to remove no 17.
