My card today should cover two challenges one of which is the Rudolph Days which is running a little later than normal and of course the Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippets fortnightly challenge.
The blog has been a bit neglected for a few days, partly due to the fact that while we had a short spell of slightly cooler weather I tried to catch up with some of the domestic tasks which had gone by the board when it was so very hot. Now of course we have a return of the hot and humid conditions which isn't really good for so many people and of course plays havoc with gardens, crops in the fields and the wildlife.
Anyway back to the reason for this post which is to show the card which I made initially for the Snippets challenge and then realised that I was still in time to pop along to the Rudolph Days as well. I started by embossing a piece of white card having first applied some ink to the actual embossing folder using a brayer. I then found some snippets of kraft card to cut the two deer; some green for the grass; had a rummage around in the little containers littering my desk and found some spare leaves, berries and a stray flower before assembling everything together. A seasonal greeting was added popped onto an odd red circle which I also 'found'. It is amazing just how many 'left overs' there are sitting around just waiting to be used.
If you follow the links above to visit the two blogs you will find plenty of Christmas inspiration and the chance of a prize on Rudolph Days and I defy anyone not to raise a smile when they see the super amusing card which Di has made for us this time using some of her snippets and the stamp set which is the prize on offer - she certainly sources some really inspiring and unusual items for us.
