Rudolph Day (late)

Hello all, I hope you had a good weekend. We were busy here the whole time!
Friday was Emma's 19th birthday.  We went for a family lunch instead of the usual dinner as she was working then out partying at night. Then had errands Saturday as usual and babysitting our grandaughter Ellie.  She is just trouble personified and causes mayhem in the house. But wouldn't change her for the world. 
I made these cards to try and get my Christmas cards stockpiled aand ready rather than a mad panic mid December  ;-p
The first card is made with LOTV Jenny Bear - All Shopped Out
I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics as usual
The paper was a freebie - Berry Merry by Jennifer Ellory, it was free from Cardmaking and Papercraft ages ago
The sentiment and card blank is from Craftwork Cards.
Now looking at it - the banner wee strip is upside down - what a donut!  Will take it apart later and fix it.

I want to enter this to the following challenges
Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge - Anything goes
Christmas Cards All Year Round
Stamping For Pleasure - Anything goes

Thanks for looking and hope your weather is better than the storm we are having here in Glasgow. 


  1. Didn't notice the banner till you said, thought they were fancy nancy trees till you said.

    1. Great idea Carol. Will draw some trunks and see how that is, what do you think?

  2. Marvellous card Alison. Great colouring. I'm afraid I didn't notice the banner until you pointed it out - but it looks just fine as it is. As Carol says they look like trees.
