October Rudolph Days Challenge

Hi there. Once again, it is time for the Rudolph Days Challenge. Don't forget, it is one entry only, and you can combine your entry with up to nine other challenges if you like. Leave a comment on this blog post, and you are set to go! This post will be short and sweet today as I have been dealing with an abcessed tooth issue and had an infection in the bone. Had the second half of some root canal work on it today, and just want to sleep now! 2 and 1/2 hours in the dental chair today for the second time on two weeks.

Sam at Whispers Cards has made a beautiful card for our inspiration. I love the die she used. It is really eye catching! The gold mirri wreath with pointsettia accents is so pretty, and is sure set off by the one larger layered poinsettia that just pops off the card. Sam has done a beautiful job on this card and I hope you will pop on over to her blog here at Whispers Cards and leave her some lovely praise!
My card is another upcycled card. My friend loves Daschunds so I upcycled this sweet pup into a card for her. The kraft paper is a matte finish and the printed design has a bit of a shimmery surface. The small gold snowflakes are gold embossed. Super simple, but at least it is another one finished up!

Our prize this month is this Studio Light poinsettia die, SL-SJ-CD50

It is 9:45pm here on the West Coast of Canada. I know that is late for the winning post, but I have been out with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandkids while they camped at the river this weekend. They have been camping since Thursday night as Friday was a holiday here. It has been beautiful weather for camping! Of course, it helps that they have a lovely travel trailer, and have all the latest in camping gear.

Yesterday, there was a Sturgeon fishing guide out on the river with a party of fishermen, and they caught the longest Sturgeon Mike has ever seen. Sturgeon are catch and release here, and the guide needed help getting the fish netted and held for a photo. He called out to shore for help and chose my grandson to assist. He needed someone who was comfortabe with a net that size and was pleased to hear that my grandson had been successfull at sturgeon fishing before, and knew that time was of the essence to net, take the photo and release. What an exciting day for Peter!

Now, onto the winnner... I used random org and out of 41 entries, our winner is #27, Vallerija.
