Rudolph Day - January 2018

I don't know about anyone else but I for one hope this year doesn't go as quickly as last year.

Here are my cards, I always try to make at least five while I am using the image, it sounds like a nice number and adds to the list.


I thought I would start this year with the man himself.

This is a Bugaboo image - Peeping Reindeer.
I saw this image on the lovely Chris's blog, she used the whole set of the peeping Christmas images.
You can see her cards at the above link.

I have folded the front of the card in half and had the image over lapping the DP.
The DP are LOTV/Nitwits
I usually take a photo of one of the individual cards and then a photo of the group but this year I decided just to take a photo of the group, not sure if it was a good idea really.

Thanks so much for popping by and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 451 - Butterflies


The challenge this week has been chosen by Wendy and she would like see Butterflies on your creations.

Our sponsor this week is Tattered Lace .
Here is the prize on offer.


I have only one Butterfly stamp and it is a very old one and I think it is from Hero Arts as is the Flower Box stamp - also very old.
Stamped the images and then stamped again onto DP then again for the butterfly to lift the inner part of the wings.
Papers Bloom and Grow.
Apologies for the poor quality of the photo.

Hope that you have managed to keep warm this past week.

Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for any medical conditions suffered by Mrs A after seeing this image on my card.

Snippets Playground weeks 315 and 316

Card for Snippets Playground 315 and 316, been ages since I have dared to put a foot in there.
My New Years Resolution is to enter more challenges and what a better place to start.


This is a card I made for my youngest Grandson.
He is in a local Football Team so I thought this was a perfect card for him.
I can not take credit for the design of this card as I did see something similar on Pinterest but created my own version.

I am entering this card into the Snippets Playground as the red frame was die cut from a small piece left over from 12 x 12 red card and the red spotty paper was from a snippet of red spotty paper.
 The two white piece were cut from two separate pieces of snippets of white card, well I could have cut them both out at the same time but needed to use up some small bits of white card, unfortunately still lots left. Had a job getting the small piece of card through the printer though

The boots and balls are stickers and the cupcake is a Papermania stamp that I have covered with the balls

Huge mistake making this card as Daughter has asked me to make one for all his other friends in the team.
Hey ho, and then there was snow.

Thanks so much for popping by and hope you are all having a good week, despite the weather.
