Rudolph Day

 I had thought that the Rudolph Christmas card challenge had finished when I saw a post that Maureen was having to give it up but I obviously missed the bit that Helen was taking over, many thanks to Kath for putting me right,  At the moment I am in the process of making twenty of this card for a neighbour who liked it when I sent her one last Christmas.  I don't normally make Christmas cards for other people but in a weak moment said yes, I'm about halfway through up to now and will be glad when they are finished !  Its a very simple card to make using the lovely Woodware stamp, gold embossed and coloured with water colour paints.

Use a stencil

 The new challenge at Try it on tuesday is to use a stencil.For my card I have used texture paste through a stencil onto a background made using some old Glimmer mist sprays unfortunately the glimmer shine doesn't show on here !  I cut the two butterflies from a piece of vellum paper to add a bit of interest.  The design team have some lovely samples over on the challenge blog so I hope you will pay them a visit

 Time again for the new challenge at Try It On Tuesday, this time we are asking for your Spring projects. we welcome all kinds of  art as long as it follows the challenge theme.  For my DT piece I have made a Z fold card, sorry for the wonky photo as I found it quite hard to get a decent one, I usually scan my cards but had to try and get a photo on my iPad.  The stamps and papers I've used were all free with a magazine last year and I've used them quite a lot.   The design team have some lovely samples for you over on the challenge blog so I do hope you will pay them a visit.
