Rudolph Days - November 2021

Hello there,

It's the 25th of November, which means that it's time for the final 'Rudolph Days' challenge of 2021 and I'm very pleased to say that I've managed to make a card for every month this year!  It also means that we're only one month away from the big day itself, how did that happen?  What do you have planned?  Last year was a very quiet affair due to the Lockdowns, so let's keep fingers crossed that we will be able to share this Christmas day with our families once again.  The hardest thing for me last year was not seeing our grandchildren and time with them is so precious as they are all growing up so fast.  Anyway, enough chatting for now, so here's the card that I've made:

I've used the lovely Sweet Poppy 'Bauble' stencil and a selecion of stamps by Lavinia, Crafty Individuals and Inkylicious.  Quite a simple card but I like how it's turned out.  These are very easy cards to batch make, so I've I will make something similar to this if I need to make any last minute cards, although  I've made a few Christmas cards every month this year, so I'm hoping that I've got enough.

Right then, that's all from me for now, so I'll wish you all a very happy day xx

Last October Sample

Hello there my lovelies,

I'm here with the last of my October samples.

I've used the stencils to create the hills, birds and the sun and all of the stamps that I've used are from the new CI botanical range of stamps.  I really enjoyed making the cards and sharing them with you all. Thank you for looking.

Take care of yourselves and I'll be back soon xx

A CAS Botanical Card

Hell there,

Where on earth is this year going? November already and it will soon be time to start writing the Christmas cards won't it.

For this card, I've used a stamp from CI-583.  There are lots of lovely leaf stamps in this set but for this card, I've only used one of them.  I simply stamped it in VersaFine Clair, coloured with Impress Olive Green, then cut them all out.  That was a labour of love I can tell you.  Definitely fiddly but worth it in the end.  I've made this into a thank you card but I think it would also be perfect for a sympathy card too.
