August Rudolph Days Challenge


It is finally time for the August Rudolph Days Challenge. Please have a quick peek at the rules before you play.

1. The Rudolph Days Challenge will start each month (January to November) 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. Please leave a comment on the challenge post.
8. The winner will be selected by random draw and announced on the first day of the following month. Prizes will be mailed anywhere in the world.


9. A special draw will be held at the end of the year, in December,  for all those who submitted a card or project every month that year, January to November.

First up is Jenny at Cardsrus. Jenny has made a fabulous chipboard album, I think it is so wonderful and also feel that it will inspire many others to give this type of album a try. I know that I will be grabbing a couple of these albums from my craft room and earmarking them for a Grandma/Grandchild craft session! Check out Jenny's blog as she always gives good, clear directions on how she created a specific project.




Sam at Whispers Cards has made us two really adorable cards this month. This wee fox asleep in the wreath is so sweet.  I love the look of him all snuggled up like that!



Her second card is another cutie.  These little dogs frolicking in the snow are darling! The Santa dish with the gingerbread is the perfect finishing touch. You will have to pop over to Sam's blog to see how she made this, and just what other treasures appear in the apperure when you turn the viewing handle.


No card from me this month, as shortly after I got home from Britain, my eldest daughter asked me to accompany her to Scottsdale, Arizona. We are here for medical reasons which is never fun,  but we are having a wonderful time in their 105 degree weather!!! Thanks goodness this house has a pool...  

Our prize this month is this Recollections, Tree and Truck stamp and die set...

  7. Hi Maureen,
    I do hope all goes well with your family visit to the US even if it's not for fun.
    Will be thinking of you and hoping it's nothing too serious that the visit is for.
