November Rudolph Days Challenge

Hi there. In spite of COVID, lockdowns, and all the rest, it still seems the days have sped by this year. This is our last Rudolph Challenge of 2020 and I can hardly believe it!

I am still struggling with the new blogger. I have not yet figured out how to cut and paste things from a previous the rules for this challenge! If you have any knowledge of how to get cut and paste to work, drop me a comment explaining it, please.

In the meantime, if you need to peruse the rules, they can be found on the August Rudolph Days Challenge post.

Our team has been busy creating for your inspiration. First up is Jenny at Cardsarus blog. Jenny has made this beautiful angel card. I love the combination of kraft papers, shimmery pearlescent papers, and of course the gold. They look wonderful hilighting this pretty angel image.

Jenny has made a second card. This one features decoupage (I think) and lots and lots of glistening snow! You will have to follow the hyperlink above to pop over to her blog and read how she created these beautiful cards.

Next up is Linda at Snail's Space blog. Linda has created this reaaly adorable penguin easel type card. The blue colours here are perfect for this penguin scene. I love the snowy look here. Linda raised the heart to form the stopper that allows the easel card to stay open.

Linda has created a second really cute gnome card. Gnomes are so popular this year. I have not tried one yet, but sure love this one. I like the scene she has created for the gnome to be situated in. This card really tickles my fancy!

Methinks Linda has plans for a good many gnome cards in the days ahead as she is sharing one more thing she has made up on her desk!

Our prizes this month is a choice of this Impression Obsession small snowflake die

or this Cheery Lynn Designs, Merry Christmoose die

New Month, New Theme or maybe not!

I had some problems with the new blogger format. The biggest problem had been that I could not get my posts to show paragrph format. Everything looked correct in blogger editor, but as soon as I checked in Preview mode or when I published the post, everything switched display into one large run on sentence!

This looked really silly and so I checked with the blogger help department and I see that many others have written in with the same problem. The solution seems to be that I need to hit shift and enter every time I want the end of a line to show. Ending a paragraph midline uses one shift and enter and then skipping the next line takes another shift and enter.

This is frustrating to remember each and every time you want a new paragraph. The other suggestion entered is to chose a new theme. Hence this new blog theme today.

Sadly, it did not solve the problem, so I still had to manually insert the line breaks.

I will now switch back to my old theme and continue with the manual inserts.

Just posting this info to help anyone else with run on paragraph problems.

October Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

We had 58 fabulous entries this month. I was so glad to see the entry numbers climb a bit this month! Christmas is fast approaching and we only have one month left! I enjoyed getting round visiting your blogs and commenting on your cards. I still have a few left to visit but will do that today.

We had a lovely sunny day yesterday and spent it in the garden rather than on the computer! A couple more hours back out there today, means our garden is well ready for winter. Al kept busy winterizing the boat and it is now under tarps for the winter.

As always, I used Random Org to chose our winner. The winning number is #49, Greta H. Greta, drop me an email to and let me know which prize you would like. Please include your mailing address as well.
