March Rudolph Days Challenge

Hello there! You have until midnight March 31 to submit your Christmas card or project, for the March Rudolph Days Challenge. I am looking forward to seeing your creations! Don't forget it is limited to one entry per blogger. You can enter other challenges up to a total of ten (including this challenge), and don't forget to leave a comment here on this blog.

First up is Sue at Sues Crafty Corner blog. Sue is away crafting in Cornwall at the moment, but has still managed to make these lovely cards for our inspiration! Sue is such a trooper. She is great about making multiples of cards. I hope to eventually be as productive! Here is a photo of her finished multiples. I can not pick a fave as they are all so pretty. Great scenes, each and every one!
Amazing work! Here is a close up of an adorable snowman scene. I think they all may very well be digital images, but if you pop over to Sue's blog, you can get all the details! Please leave her a comment while you are there...
Jenny at Cardsarus Blog has also been busy creating multiples of some very lovely designs. These first two cards feature glittery die cuts. The brilliance of the glitter die cuts pop against the white background card!
Jenny's next two designs feature die cuts yet again, but this time the holly seems to be cut from pearelscent card whilst the white on white card is a beautiful creamy white glitter card which looks so nice on the stark white card base. All in all, four lovely cards, showcasing beautiful dies and great choices of speciality paper. Please pop over to Jenny's blog to leave her a comment!
Our prize this month is this Crafters Companion die called Tis the Season.

February Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

Hello everyone! I had a lovely birthday celebration with my husband on the first of the month and then celebrated with the kids and grandkids the following day. I received a wad of birthday dollars earmarked for craft supplies!

Today, my husband took me round to the local scrapbook stores in our area. I managed to locate some more 49 and Market design paper and embellies, for a vintage book I am making featuring old black and white photos of my Grandparents. I have some birth and death records, Grandpa's army records, and my Grandmother's Nursing Certificate, as well as lots of old photos. I am excited to start this book!

I used Random Org to draw our winner. The first name drawn had left a message that they were only playing for fun. The second name drawn was Clare #4. Clare, I was delighted to read your name as that is my middle name and you spell it the same way as me. In my country, Claire is often the feminine spelling and Clare is the masculine...I have spent my life spelling mine out letter by letter to ensure the correct spelling. It is amazing how many times you have to provide your full name for documents etc.

Clare, could you please email me at and provide your mailing address. Thanks.

Feb Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

As it is my birthday today, I will draw the Feb Rudolph Days Challnge winner tomorrow on March 2nd. We have a busy day today with outings for lunch and for supper. The kids and grandkids will most likely visit till quite late so it is better if I delay writing it up, taking the winning number photo, and then posting it. This way, I can spend that time having some extra family fun!.

See you all tomorrow!
