Rudolph Christmas

I've been a pretty poor blogger lately and not been very crafty either but as it's Rudolph Day (the 25th) I took over the kitchen table this morning to get out my snippets and make my 2 christmas creations.

I decided that this time I would make a CAS card and matching tag using kraft card as a base and leftover pieces of white card for the dies. When I won the Rudolph challenge back in March Sarn also sent me this gorgous little Penny Black hedgie snuggling up to his stocking full of goodies. I coloured him with Promarkers and cut him out with an Xcut scalloped circles die. The tag was cut with Marianne Creatables LR0154 and the other dies are Memory Box 'frostyville border' and 'crystal snowflake'. From my stash I added ribbon, baker's twine, bells, gem and sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~

Rudolph Day challenge 'make at least 2 christmas creations'
Pixie's Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'ohhh so cute'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'use your die-cuts'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'anything goes'
Divas By design challenge 'anything goes'
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'your favourite Penny Black stamp'
Hanna and Friends challenge 'dies'
Rhedd and Rosie challenge 'no flowers / nothing floral'
That's Crafty challenge 'kraft card' (2nd entry)
Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything goes' (3rd entry)
Penny Black and More challenge 'anything goes' (3rd entry)
One Crazy Stamper challenge 'anything goes and an embellishment' (3rd entry)
Card Mania challenge 'CAS clean and simple' (2nd entry)
Sweet Stamps challenge 'anything goes'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'sparkle and shine'

Wow, that's a lot. I'm pretty certain I'm within the rules and there are no limits to the number of challenges combined, but if I'm wrong please leave me a comment and I'll sort it.

The little hedgie looks super cute on your card and tag. I had all good intentions of getting mine one early but it will be a last minute rush as usual .!! Hugs Mrs A.

Afternoon Andrea . . . I really LOVE the Kraft card creations you're showing here. That little hedgie is SOOO cute - you've coloured him beautifully. Love how the white embossing really pops against the Kraft card. Thanks for joining in with Rudolph Day again.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
