Rudolph Day Jan 2015

Hello and welcome to the very first Rudolph Day challenge of 2015.
Sarn has retired, huge thank to her for the past few years but 
ScrappyMo has taken over the reigns and a huge thank you to her for doing so.

The rules have changed and we have to only enter one card and have one entry.

This is a die that I bought just before Christmas last year and I had a play. You cut the die then emboss it and  while the card is still in the die ,colour the embossed bits, I used Tumbled Glass, then sprayed it with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Iridescent spray, which I am sure doesn't show up here. Also it doesn't show that I have added sticky pads to the back of the tree so it stands out from the background

Another bonus is the fact that as the tree is separate from the background it can be used on it's own.

I have half the packaging but can't find the other half that tells me the name of the die.

This post will be scheduled and the lovely Sarn will do the linking for me and I really do apologise that I will not be able to leave comments as I will be on holiday, as this post goes live I will have just left Bridgetown, Barbados, heading for Grenada.

Thank you so much for looking and even though I will not be able to leave you a comment I hope that you are kind enough to let me know that you have visited. I will do better next month.

NBUS and Snippets

This is the first time I have entered Darnel's NBUS challenge and I am hoping that  my never before used schtuff is acceptable for the challenge.

Now this is the point where I am supposed to post the NBUS banner, 3 hours I have spent trying to get it on here, and every time I have managed it and then gone to preview the post it wasn't there and also wasn't there when I came back to edit the post, I have lost the will to live with it, BUT I am still going to enter the challenge, and therefore ,because I have not followed the rules I realise and agree with the fact that `i do not want to be entered for the prizes.

The photo's are horrendous, due to loads of reasons.

Now those of you in know, are aware that  Mrs A has been trying out different shaped cards lately, I thought that is something I must do this year, use all my shaped cards, along with all my cream cards, that I have had for yonks and hardly ever use. So I have had this shape of card for over 12 months, took one look at it and decided it was not what I thought, I dumped it into my shaped cards draw.
This is 1 of 4, with 4 more to go, two have gone in the recycled paper bag.

The image is LCI, no longer available.
Papers and ribbon SU and no your eye's have not gone funny the dotty paper is fuzzy in RL.
Shape card, sentiment and candy - Craftwork Cards.
Now if you can just spot the turquoise circle round the image and backing the sentiment, these are from snippets so a skip, hop and a jump into the Snippets Playground, mostly to check on Parsnip as Sarn has been in early and the poor things may be suffering after her visit with the Frog umbrella,
(apologies to those of you who do not follow the Playground, you should, it's a nightmare - good fun.

Oh and by the way I have been asked to make a 30th Birthday card for a male  with a Policeman theme.... HELP.
It is now 10.20 p.m. Monday evening so will scheduled this post for Tuesday morning

Thanks so much for looking
