Rudolph Day Challenge

Hi All!

Woohoo! I have made my first entry for Sarn's Rudolph Day Challenge, the first of the year!

I got some lovely coloured gems and wooden snowflakes for Christmas and this is their first outing. I used a LOTV cute square and added stickles and some red cord. Papers are from Pink Petticoat. I also used a new Distress Ink Pad I got for Christmas too, it is 'Antique Linen' and is the first time I have ever used distress inks! You can't really see the result in the photo but I am really pleased with the way it turned out in RL.

As I used snippets up (red papers) I would like to enter this card in to Di's Snippet Challenge.

Another one to add to the box! This year it is my resolution to try and build up my 'pink box', the box I hold all of my cards in. Last year I had the most cards I had ever made, then sold them all on a stall so now don't have too many :-( 

I get very envious when I see other people's card stashes! I need to build mine up so hopefully you will see lots more cards from me, trying to fill up my box! What do you keep your cards in and do you have many?

Thanks for visiting

Hi Laura

A lovely card .. .. great image and lovely use of your snippets.

Far better to have empty boxes because you have sold everything than full boxes because no-one wants them!!!! But I know what you mean. It always feels good to have a few behind you.

Have a good week.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous all the shimmer and the beautiful image. You have done a great job!

I know what you mean about building up your finished daughters come a raid my card box. That is of course fine with me...but with 22 birthdays in Little Miss C;s class plus a healthy group of family friend childrens birdays, my daughter needs about 60 kids birthday cards a year. Combine that with DD friends birthday as well as family on our side and her husbands side and that's another 30 or more.

Phew! I make a lot of quickie cards for the card bin...For every coloured card, i probably make a half dozen of more quick cards. I also make duplicates as i have everything out anyway...why not make 2 or 3 the same...especially on the kids ones!

Isn' it funny how the smallest addition can make a card? I love that piece of red cord - it 'ties' everything together... and the glitter :)
I've just popped over from Pixie's place to say "hello!",
