Rudolph Day - February 2015

Well that came round fast, it's Rudolph Day again over at Scrappy Mo's. All you need to do is to make a Christmas card and link into Mo's blog HERE to be in with a chance of winning a really lovely Memory Box die. And this month you only have until tomorrow (Saturday) to join in as it's a 28 day month!
I used:

- 4" x 4" white linen effect card blank

- red tartan paper from LOTV's 'Classic Christmas' paper pad

- snippet of white linen card topped with snippet of green plain paper from the LOTV paper pad

- then on top I just added a pre-made little Scottie dog felt topper with sticky pads (bought just after Christmas in Hobbycraft, their own brand)

I made four cards in total, two with red Scotties on and two with white Scotties on, I changed the backing to red for those, although all four card do have the lovely red tartan paper as the main background. And, as the LOTV paper pad is 8" x 8", I got four cards from one sheet too :)

But, although fine in daylight, when I've taken photos of the cards with the white doggies on you can see the shading of the sticky fixers I used - rather like little sets of underwear - through the felt :) Still, they look OK to the naked (no pun intended!) eye, it's just the camera that's acting like an x-ray machine - so that's another four cards added to the total of 2015's Christmas cards.

And, I'd also like to enter this card into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge, where this week's theme is 'Feature a Creature' - as well as Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for February, where it's always 'Anything Goes'.

Wonderful card...and perfect for a dog lover. I have friends that love dogs and had not thought how much they would enjoy a card like this. Thanks for that wee reminder!

You are very industrious...4 cards...Wow!

Thanks fortaking part in the February Rudolph DAys Challenge. Good luck in the draw...and thanks for all the info abou the Random org. I did have the info on their home page but thought it was something that I had to set up on my post itself...like a type of widget. I understand what I need to do and perhaps it will even let me take a photo of the winner and then i will stick that on the winner announcement. Time to sort out the other way before next month!!!

Our company leaves in the morning and I am looking forward to having my craft room to myself for the future!

Hello Di,
What an adorable card! I'm sorry I've been MIA for a while. Just in a bit of a funk lately. I've been knitting through it all (yay). We had a snow delay at work today so I'm finally visiting some blogs and it's inspired me to get myself back out there.

Hugs to you and Len.
