Rudolph the Teal Nosed Reindeer.....

Hi all... thought I'd pop in to say hello... so you don't forget me!! ;-)

Real life is still getting in the way of my crafting at the moment... and I'm really missing it to be honest... so might have to try and find a few bits and bobs to play with soon... see if I can squeeze in a card.

We're still having work done on the house... so most of my crafting stuff is packed away! :-(
but my room is at least looking tidier than before...and I have my new bed which is SO comfy! :-)

I found this card all done in draft... meant to post it before Christmas but forgot... so thought I'd share it with you today... it was one of my fave cards that I made in run up to xmas... I planned it all out properly in my head beforehand... don't usually do that. And was pleased with how it came out.

Die: Cheery Lynn - Winter Neighbourhood Border (Landscape)
Die: Spellbinders Frosty Forms (Reindeer)
Die: Nellie Snellen Multi Frame - Square Snowflakes (Snowflakes)
Die: Spellbinders borderabilities A2 Curved Borders (Snow layers)
Die: Creative Expressions - Classic Poinsettias by Sue Wilson
Stamp: Creative Expressions - Cling Stamp - Elegant Poinsettias by Sue Wilson

 The Poinsettia was die cut out of vellum and then stamped and embossed with white fine detail embossing powder. I used a white gel pen to stencil the details on the reindeer. Finished off with some gems and lots of stickles to create sparkly snow.

I have got my Christmas Rudolph Sweater on today! we're behind with the washing... and couldn't find a clean chunky jumper apart from this xmas one.... and I was SO cold !! so figured... as it's snowing anyway... may as well go with the flow! Lol
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Love and Hugs

Your card is gorgeous Sue, I'm not surprised it is one of your favourites. Such a stunning design and beautiful colour combination.
I'm so pleased to hear that your new bed is nice and comfy, I hope you do manage to find a few bits and make a card.
Take care and don't worry we would never forget about you.

Big hugs, Tammy

So beautiful Sue. I adore the lovely little scene you have created. The colour blue is awesome.

Pia S said...

I sure see why you were so pleased with it. This is the kind of design that would look completely different by just changing colors, so a design fit for mass production and still looking unique by just changing color, how great is that!

Pat said...

What a gorgeous card Sue, I love the houses in the background die and your great design. Hope you are warmer today, it's quite miserable here after such a beautiful day yesterday but it's not as cold as it has been. Hope you can get to some crafting.
