Well I'm coming in on a wing and a prayer with this one, almost missed this months 
Rudolph Challenge  Its a ten minute card with bits and pieces lying around, only things I cut specially were the red mat and the snow hill which can hardly see on here, might add some glitter to it later and some red stickles to the baubles on the tree.

Colours Of The Rainbow

The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is "Colours Of The Rainbow" so we are hoping to see lots of colour this time around.  The design team have lots of inspiration over on the challenge site so hope you will visit them.  For my card I have used a stamp from Stamping up  Work Of Art set. I couldn't find any appropriate wording but ended up cutting up an Inkylicious stamp that had never been used although the rest of the set had, I would have been horrified at cutting up stamps at one time but now I take the scissors without a qualm !

The Earth Laughs In flowers

Time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this time the theme is "The Earth laughs in flowers" so we need to see your lovely floral creations.  We are sponsored this month by
 Crafty Individuals  who have an amazing range of beautiful stamps. This is all one stamp but I have re stamped the largest rectangle and lifted it with foam tape, also decoupaged the butterfly and blue flowers, restamped and fussy cut two extra butterflies too,. The background DP is from
 Crafty Individuals also. .  I found some Inktense liquid water colours I had forgotten about and used them as I wanted to go a bit more vibrant than my usual watercolours. I have watered them down a little as the colours as so bright, loving them all over again!  I hope you will join us in our challenge BUT do remember we are a stamping challenge and must show prominent stamping and follow the theme to stand a chance of winning the very generous voucher from Crafty Individuals.

The Rainbow

The current Library Challenge is The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence, once again a book I have not read.
This is the cover which is the inspiration

An Unrushed Walk Through A Very Different Time - The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence | Byte The Book

I think I got a bit carried away and gone a bit overboard with the rainbow colours, didn't have a stool but found this stamp with the chair which I wanted to be centre stage, stamped the two women as shadowy figures in the back ground Not the best interpretation but I had fun making it and in the process rediscovered all my Paperbag Studio and Oxford Impression stamps that have not seen the light of day for a long time !
