March Rudolph Day

Good afternoon and happy Saturday. I know I'm a bit late with this month's Rudolph Days Christmas card, but I can barely keep up with what day/week/month it is. It's only day 5 of lockdown here but I already feel out of touch with the rest of the world! BUT Christmas will still be coming Coronavirus or not, and this year I have NO excuse to not be ready. 

I started by cutting my card with some of my favourite Tim Holtz dies - no-one does Christmas quite like Tim!

I've just received my new Studio Light stamps from Hochanda so it seemed like the perfect chance to ink them up. I also wanted something nice and glittery so I used my WOW embossing powders.

With just some more die cut deer and sentiments we are all finished, so that's 4 more for the box of cheer!
I'm entering these into the Rudolph Day's challenge,
The ABC Christmas challenge - I've done E for embossing, and G for gold, and
WOW embossing powder face-book group where the challenge is New To You.
Hopefully by Christmas life should be back to normal and we'll just be complaining about the weather!
Thanks so much for looking, take care, and stay safe x

    I spend quite a bit of time at home normally but because it is now imposed on me days all seem out of kilter. Lots to do so can’t complain of boredom. Hope you continue to safe safe and well. Hugs Mrs A.

  4. They are all lovely Sue, and as always, your stitching finishes them off beautifully. We have been in lock down for two weeks now and we are just getting used to it, but strangely I have lost my mojo! Take care and keep safe. Hugs, Anne xx

  15. Oh gosh Sue i seem to have been in a time warp let alone partial lock down i'm one of the ones who's making sure food provisions & medical needs are taken care of for those that are in total lock down. You've been so creative Sue I seem to have missed out on so much thought I was looking at a post from last year when I read about you getting these stamps from Hochanda. I purchased these last Summer & they were a life saver for last years cards. Have fun creating with them you'll soon have cards for 2021 at this rate. Fabulous makes along with all those others below.. now i'm off to check out the latest.
    Stay safe & keep creative Tracey xx
