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 post...like 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

Fab DT cards - love the gnomes.
As for cut n paste - sometimes it works - and then sometimes it doesn't! We've had the same problems on my DTs.

Fabulous creations by the DT and gnomes are so popular as you say, but as usual I haven't caught up with that craze yet! Thank you for the challenge x

Wonderful indeedy Mo, those creations, clever work!
Think the penguin is my favourite.
Re copy paste.. I think you can just copy as a hold down and select, it should have a copy option. I have used it with links and such, but not on computer as work on an iPad not a computer so may not be any help..
... and YES!!! 😃😆 I’ve managed to join in every Rudolph day too.
I hope you’re okay as you don’t say how you are, mind you I didn’t either. I’m okay today’s a good one after three not so good ones, that’s why don’t say! And I’ll be honest I’m not into gnomes I think they look incomplete.. fusspot Annie! Aren’t I?
Thanks for sharing, and God bless, Shaz in Oz.x

Swissie said...

Great cards from the team also this time! Thank you!
Yes, you are right, Mo, it is not easy to understand that this one is the last Rudolph Day's Challenge 2020!
This year I try to recycle old cards and packages by crafting. This card is also a such one. The image is taken from a card we got last year.
I wish you a blessed Advent. Take care!
Hugs, Liv / Swissie

Thanks for the year long challenge. I have enjoyed playing.

Mandy said...

If you copy and paste to prevent people stealing content they now paste it in as a picture and not text. This stops unscrupulous bloggers from ripping whole articles and pasting it onto their own blogs as if they have written it themselves.

I usually use a word processing program like Word to write my blogposts.

If you select 'paste and match style' this will paste the basic text in but you will lose all the formatting. It is then a case of adding the styling that you wish like font, bold and hyperlinks. It is a pain and I do keep forgetting.

Hi Mo, happy Rudolf days everyone. Awesome makes from the team. I haven't had problems copying old posts and then pasting. I either view the post in blogger or in the dashboard. Highlight the text you want, hit ctrl C to copy, open your new post, ctrl V to paste. If you want to add a photo in the copied text I find hitting return a few times to make a big space where you want the photo to add in can help to get an added photo in the right place. Then you can just delete the spaces. I have had less luck with trying to drag photo's around. They are erratic!!!! Good luck. Hugz

Jenny really does make beautiful cards, doesn't she. And I actually like the simplicity of Linda's. All those cute little gnomes.
Thank you for another year of hosting this challenge. I really do enjoy having something to work towards each month. Kate x

Heidi MyLittleStampingBlog said...

Wonderful examples and a great variety of styles! Thanks for sharing and hosting this challenge. I wasn’t able to participate as often as I wanted this year due to the disruption of the pandemic but it is always a great way to get the cards done.

Becca Yahrling said...

Gorgeous cards by everyone! Jenny's cards are so special with all the pretty layers. And Linda's are so sweet - love an easel card (& purple!) and the gnome is a cutie. Thanks for the inspiration!

LesleyG said...

Absolutely gorgeous creations with lots of sparkle and cuteneness, happy RD! xxx

Verna Angerhofer said...

Thanks so much for having this challenge. It sure helps as an incentive to make Christmas and holiday cards. I love the cards you made this time too!

Greta said...

Wow--what creative & gorgeous cards with so many details! I haven't tried to cut & paste, so can't help you with that. Hope you're well, Maureen. I did send an email after winning last month--hope you got it. No rush at all in mailing my prize. I plan to enter a card this month, but keep me out of the drawing, please. Sending holiday cheer, Greta

Pat said...

Beautiful cards from both Jenny and Linda. I love the vintage look of these wonderful snowy scenes from Jenny and then the cute penguins on the pretty heart shaped easel card plus another super card featuring one of the sweet gnomes in a great snowy wood scene, and some more cute gnomes ready to use..someone is going to be busy. Hope you are keeping well Mo and glad that I have got an entry in for this last challenge of the year, and sorry that I have been a bit spasmodic..my mojo is rather up and down..lol. Thank you for another wonderful year of the challenge and look forward to seeing you here in the new year for more fun challenges. x

Loll said...

Wonderful cards from the DT again this month. Love the vintage look of Jenny's cards ... so beautiful. And Linda's penguin card is so sweet. What a clever design! Thanks again for a year of fun challenges Maureen! xx

Kate said...

Beautiful, inspirational cards! Thank you for this challenge - so glad I was finally able to participate - even if it's the last one for the year! Can't say I'm sorry to show 2020 the door!

Izzy Scrap said...

Beautiful inspirations from the DT and thanks so much for the challenge which helped me created more Christmas cards ! Have a lovely Christmas holidays and see you next year !

Kate said...

Sorry, somehow I've managed to link to the wrong post (I have no idea how that happened). The correct link is http://katescardcorner.blogspot.com/2020/11/twas-night.html - which is a Christmas card not an Autumn card. Thank you Jenny for bringing it to my attention.

Sally H said...

Thanks once again for your wonderfiul challenge. It always helps to get me organised. Hope my entry brings a smile x

Donna said...

What great inspiration. Love the beautiful colors and designs. I actually think this is the first year I managed to do all the Rudolph challenges. Hope the New Year of 2021 will be better than 2020.

Helen said...

Carol L said...

I wish I could help you with your blogger issues, but truth be told, I still struggle at times with using Windows 10 LOL I'm an analog girl trying to make her way through the digital world and not doing a very good job of it. Love all the DT cards and great inspiration and thanks for another fun Rudolph Day challenge! I can't believe another year has gone by so quickly! Do take care of yourself in the latest round of restrictions!

Vicky Hayes said...

I can't believe it's the final Rudolph Day! With such a weird year you'd think it would drag by but no, true to form, each year seems to whiz by faster than the last one!
Thank you for running this challenge Maureen. It's not easy, particularly when Blogger changes and we have to do work-arounds to get things to work. Other than control C and V, I have no new ideas about cutting and pasting but I know some clever techies will be able to help. The cards are wonderful, as always, especially those little gnomes! I'm thinking of investing in a set myself :) Take care and enjoy the holiday season, Vicky x

Karenladd said...

wow, I think the DT has saved the best for last as these card designs are all gorgeous. What a crazy year this has been, but hard to believe it's nearly over. Thank you for providing a bright spot in blog land Maureen. The Rudolph challenge helps keep me on track for my holiday card making, and inspires me with beautiful card samples all through the year. Stay well and take care of yourself!

SHartl said...

Thanks for another Rudolph Challenge Mo. You reminded me to go into my craft room and make a Christmas card for a special friend. The design team is always so talented, and I am loving the gnomes.

Bonnie said...

Awesome inspiration cards! Looks like there will be lots of sweet gnomes on cards!

Eemeli said...

Wow, this has really been a hectic year with a lot of things happening in life. Have been missing out sooooo many Rudolph Day contests (usually I remember in the beginning of the next month... :) but this time I am in (if I manage to make my blog post during the day).

Happy Christmas and be safe!

Hugs from Finland,
Eemeli

Jane Willis said...

Gorgeous work! I thought I was going to have to miss out this time - how come now I'm staying at home all the time I seem to have less time than ever? But how could I miss the last challenge of the year?

KathyA. said...

Amazing DT cards this month! Plus, I collect snowflake dies, stamps and stickers. Would love to add this set to my collection. Just sayin'! :)

Janis said...

I have been still having issues with new blogger, too, Maureen....but mine might be because I have an older computer! :)
It is hard to believe that November is now nearly over and it is the last Rudolph Days of the year. Thank you so much for all the work you put into this fun and inspiring challenge. I love seeing all the beautiful cards. Thank you to your fabulous design team for the feast each month!! This really helps me to keep on track with my Christmas cards!!
Hugs to all and have a wonderful Christmas season!!

So happy I made it this month. Happy Rudolph Days!
I agree that this year seems to have passed by so fast.
Sweet cards by everyone, and I think I may need to get out my gnome die and create some fancy gnomes the way Linda did...

Hi Maureen,
I could not comment on Nos 28, 46, and 60 as I was getting a warning about that site was dangerous.
I get this occaionally on some of my followers and I am scared to go any further in case It wipes out my computer.
Not got my tech guy( aka) hubby to get my computer up and running again.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Maureen, I’ve had more difficulty this month trying to leave comments, including using the APP that used to help. If I’m not recognized by google, some blogs allow me to choose name/url, which i try but then my comment disappears. I’m wondering if it’s individual blog settings because some are ok and some aren’t. As usual, i enjoyed the variety of submissions and appreciate the compliments. I just wish i could comment in return.
