Rudolph Day - August 2014

I'm a day later for Rudolph Day than hoped, but the 48 hours or so bug seems to be abating, which is great news :) Plus I need to catch up with Playground commenting ASAP so my apologies for being late.

Anyhow, I managed to make not two, but three cards for Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge - mostly as the topper sheet I used had three images on and I couldn't choose which one of the cute faced critters might not be used and would end up back in the toppers box without his mates :)
I used:

- one 6" x 6" cream card blank and two DL off-white card blanks

- three toppers and two sentiments from KanBan's 'Festive Friends' - Blue' toppers sheet

- navy slightly shimmery card stock

- SU 'Crumb Cake' card stock

- shiny gold Josy Rose nail heads

Remember to comment on my 300 followers thank you candy (sticky post at top of blog) if you want a chance to win a Joanna Sheen voucher girls! :)

Bummer on your being puny. I hope it is all better now. Your little duck (or goose?) is adorable. Had to read a bit to see these were toppers, not those delightful PB critters. These are mucho cute and love the fancy frames dressing up these little guys. Cute, cute. TFS & Hugs

Sorry to hear you have been poorly...hope you are over that nasty bug!
Your trio of cards look breat. What lovely toppers...somehow methinks you must have picked them up on ione of your outings with a certain Mrs A. Rumour has it she is holding two of the poor wee animals in a drawer for ransom!

Great cards, Di.

Karen said...

These are stunning Di! An elegant look for the fab birds and they make me smile lol!
I hope you are now recovered and don't worry - we all understand.
Now then your kind and wonderful words on my blog today have teared me up a tad, lol, which happens a lot when I don't sleep well! Thank you so much, so very, very much! Gentle hugs xx
