Finally, The Feb Rudolph Days Challenge

Hi there. I am finally getting the Feb Rudolph Days Challenge up and posted on a borrowed computer!

Our designers have been busy making wonderful inspiration for you all. First up is Sam at Whisper's Cards blog.

Sam has made us two wonderful cards. The first is this quirky reindeer card. I just love it as it made me smile!
You can see Sams great colouring skills shining through here. I like the non traditional colours Sam used here.They suit this cheeky looking reindeer!



Sam has made up a second card featuring a stately looking trophy stag. This is a fabulous main image and I really like the way Sam added the images of the others too. I hope you will pop over to her blog and leave her some comments.

Sue at Sues Crafty Corner blog is up next with these beautiful Christmas bauble cards. They have gorgeous colours. The rich gold against that pretty green is stunning. Best of all, Sue got three made! I hope you will pop over to her blog and leave her some comments too.



My card is a Bo Bunny Kit card. I worked through this kit with my Grandaughter Clare. She was making cards for her school teachers and I was just keeping her company, making cards for my Christmas stash. The bauble is made from chipboard and came preprinted. I matted the green card they included onto a snippet of red card,and really roughed up the edges with the flat of my scissors. I placed that on the background they again included, and mounted that onto a snippet of red mirri card. The aqua 6x6 base card was one I had made up a few weeks before, so that came in handy! The kit even included the sentiments.



Our prize this month is this Memory Box Poinsettia Circle Frame.

I love your pretty ornament Bo Bunny kit card, Sam's two designs featuring the fun reindeer and the stately stag with the great embellishments, as well as Sue's stunning blue-green and gold ornament design! Thank you all for the inspiration! Take care! Hugs, Darnell

Do you realize what kind of party we could have with all of us that would like to take a hammer to a computer. Oh how frustrating they can be.

Lovely cards from the DT. Thank you for another month of fun. [Bunny]

Happy Rudolf Days everyone. Glad you got it sorted Maureen. Hope your computer is fixed soon. OK, I was obviously a little over excited cos I linked to the challenge!! so please delete #19. Click happy today LOL. Hugz

Verna Angerhofer said...

Computer issues always get me down and I am glad you are once again able to post even if you had to borrow a computer. I love the card you made too.

Sandy said...

Lovely sample cards from everyone.

Di said...

Hello Mo! The only reason I used my baby Altenew die cutting machine is because my shoulder is playing up and the big manual machines, even the Cuttlebug are too much to manage right now. I think I need an electric one such as a Gemini or similar - but it was a sweet thought. Hope you're a lot better now!

Love

Di xx

Kathleen said...

Great selection of cards, glad you got the problem sorted.

Vicky Hayes said...

Oh computers! Sorry to hear you were having trouble with yours Maureen, and hope it's all sorted now. Love your card that you made with the kit, but more than that I love that you and your granddaughter were crafting together - always makes me smile that crafting brings the generations together. Right, off to visit Sam and Sue! Vicky x

Sue's Crafty Corner said...

Glad you found a way of getting up and running even if you had to borrow a laptop.

Hugs Sue xx

Bonnie said...

How fun to craft with your granddaughter, Maureen! I'm sure you both enjoyed it! And such a pretty card for the Christmas box! A nice selection of Christmas papers and a pretty bauble! Thanks for posting the challenge despite your computer problems!

Karenladd said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your computer woes, and hope that you aren't faced with buying a new one. I'm impressed that you were able to get the challenge up and running, even while limping along with a borrowed computer.
Oh, I just love that you and your granddaughter crafted together. I have two granddaughters who like to craft as well, but can't spend enough time with them to actually craft anymore. However, I try to occasionally put together a little project when I'm going to be seeing them, and have a mini-craft session. Once COVID is under control, I look forward to doing more of that.
The card samples are wonderful and your kit cards will add to your stash in no time.

Carol L said...

So sorry about your internet issues but glad you got help with another computer. Beautiful cards from everyone again this month - thanks always for the inspiration that keeps me going all year long! Take care!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Wow, so many gorgeous cards! You, Sam and Sue did an awesome job with the inspiration! Thanks for the challenge and I hope your computer issues will be resolved soon - that's dedication to find another computer to use - thank you for doing that for us! I know how frustrating that can be as I've had to do it myself at times. I hope you are feeling okay healthwise. Sending hugs from Nova Scotia!

Brenda said...

So sorry about your computer/internet issues Maureen, but glad you were able to borrow a computer to get the challenge up with. It's always something isn't it?! The designers did a wonderful job with their cards! I love each one! Hugs, Brenda

Janis said...

Maureen, you are a trooper to manage to get your challenge up on a borrowed computer. So sorry yours is giving you problems. Technology is great....when it works! lol..
The samples are just beautiful. I esp love Sue's gorgeous gold on green!
How fun to get to craft with your granddaughter! Your kit card is sweet.
Thank you for another lovely challenge. This is such a wonderful way to get ahead on my Christmas cards!
Stay healthy and creative!!

What a annoying thing to have problems with your computer and I hope you're back online with no trouble soon. Not only are a champ at getting the challenge posted, but you even spent time crafting with your granddaughter. I know that she loves the time spent messing with paper and glue because my girls treasure their craft time with grammie.
Thanks for another fun challenge and for sharing those gorgeous cards.
