Rudolf Day and More Snippets

Ok, I have spent a few days blog-hopping.  It does not expend as many calories as walking but the weather in Somerset . . . . .  
Anyway being a bit slow on the uptake I have only just realised that you can combine challenges which means that the fact that this week has been busier than usual means I can enter the cards I managed to make into two challenges!  

So here are my two cards for the Rudolph Day Challenge which also qualify for the Snippets Challenge.

Materials Used:
old Christmas card
bit of silver mirri card
greetings stamp
Centura Pearl card left over from another card
Adirondack archival black ink pad
iridescent glitter

Materials Used:
old Christmas card
holly sprig stamp (from Creative Stamping magazine)
Adirondack Latte ink pad
strip of white card cut off 

Two fairly simple cards that use up two of those hundreds of Christmas cards saved because I may get around to doing something with them one day!

Thanks for taking the time to pop bye.  Have a good day.


I  would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
Pixies Snippets Playground – Week 109
Stamping for Pleasure Rudolph Day


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
