November Rudolph Days Challenge

Hi there! It is time for our last regular Rudolph Days Challenge of 2022. It has been a great year with lots of beautiful cards made by everyone. Thanks to all that emailed or left a message in the comments that they would like to try out for the design team spot. I will place the names in a hat and Al will draw a winner in the next few days. We are in the midst of having the walk out basement rooms painted. We moved a ton of furniture and decor items out, and will re-arrange the room and decor in a different set up once the painter is finished. He will be done on Tuesday afternoon and we are really looking forward to getting it all finished and rearranged. I bought some new pictures and I am eager to hang those and start to enjoy them!

Our designers have been busy creating some lovely cards for your inspiration. First up is Jenny at Cardarus blog. Jenny has made two scene cards with winter wildlife. They are amazing! I love scenes and appreciate the work that goes into making them. It is so detailed! Jenny has stamped the envelopes to match and they look great like that. She always has fabulous interiors to her cards so I hope you will pop over to her blog (link posted above) and leave her some praise!

Sue at Sue's crafty Corner blog is up next, Sue has created some lovely coloured cards. I love these vivid non traditional colours! They suit this modern bauble stamped image. and are beautiully heat embossed as well. Sue always amazes me at how many cards she makes at once. She is a power machine! Hope you pop over to her blog (link posted above) and leave her some praise.

Nothing from me so far. Everything from the basement is piled up in my craft room, and although I have been making cards upstairs, I did not bring my folding backdrop thingy and so do not have photos taken yet. I will try to take photos and post them before the end of the month...

Our prize this month is this Taylored Expressional Stamp and die combo called Iconic Wishes.

Fabulous sets from both designers.

Those wildlife winter scenes would be so fitting to many of our loved ones since we have many hunters and nature loving people around us. I think I should get a set of similar kind of stamps 'cause there are plenty of occasions (birthdays, christmas, etc...) to use them.

And you can never go wrong with cas style - love especially the vibrant colors on Sue's creations. And that extra bling is like cherry on a cake :)

Hugs,
Eemeli

I always love Jenny's cards and these winter wildlife scenes are perfect. Sue has done well again and made another bright and cheerful set of cards.
Here we are at the end of another year of card-making. You have had an eventful year but I am grateful for your dedication to this challenge. I hope your room is soon sorted so you can enjoy living in it.
As usual I am just playing along.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas season. Kate x

Wonderful cards, all of them!
So sorry I have not joined in Rudolph Days for months. It was not because I had no interest, but due to pains I could not sit at my craft desk.
The last couple of weeks I feel better. So glad I can make cards again.
I wish you a blessed December and Christmas time.
Hugs, Liv in Switzerland (Swissie)
