Rudolph Days - September 2022

Time for another Rudolph Days challenge over at ScrappyMo's HERE. I made four really quick Christmas cards - two of each design and the first one is my Rudolph Days entry:

I used:

- 8.5" x 3.5" slimline white card blanks, tent style. I made my own card blanks using a UK size A4 sheet of heavy weight (300gsm) white card. Our A4 is only 8.25" wide so I had to make them 'down the length' of the sheet of card, meaning more waster/more snippets for ATCs perhaps

- next stamped the sentiments using stamps from Penny Black's 'Yuletide Wishes' set of sentiment stamps - and a Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad - onto the chosen images

- topped the card fronts with the Whimsy Stamps image papers - from the 'SurReally Cool Christmas' set of Slimline papers, using Collall All Purpose Glue

- super fast - four cards done!

Yesterday was Dudley's 'Gotcha Day' - four years since he joined us here. And he still manages to surprise us! Little does he know that plans are afoot to sneakily replace Honka Duck with a new one, today if possible. Followed by a bath/shower tomorrow - he's gonna be pretty fed up I can see! ☺


  1. Beautiful cards Di - love them both, you really have made the most of your papers here
    Poor Dudley - fancy two traumatic events in two days :) You really will be in the 'dog box'.

  2. Pretty images Di, hope Dudley forgives you :) xxx

  3. What lovely papers you've found for your quick Christmas cards, classy!! Good luck with the Dudley bath and duck swap 🤣

  4. Really lovely RD cards Di - and 4 more for the box. Excellent going.
    4 Years has flown by hasn't it? I'm sure he'll forgive you. Dogs are great for living in the moment and not holding grudges!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  5. Four gorgeous cards Di, I love them. Thank you for joining in the fun at Rudolph Days this month.

  7. Two great cards Di. Your stash of Christmas cards must be building up nicely, like mine is. Gosh four years since that little bundle of white fur moved in, doesn’t time fly!

  8. Four more beautiful cards Di and both paper designs are really pretty and the PB sentiments are stylish and elegant and finish them perfectly. x

  10. Happy Rudolph Days, Di! Your cards are gorgeous! I like the slimline design - I'm slowly starting to try some new folds and shapes so I enjoy seeing the inspiration! Four years for Dudley? Is it just me, or is time flying way too fast? Good luck with the replacement duck!

  11. Gorgeous cards! Slimline cards are so elegant. Happy Gotcha Day! So much pleasure from one little dog. Good luck with the new duck shenanigans. Take care. Hugs xxxxxxxxx

  12. Great slimline cards. I remember it was 2018 as that was when we went to Havana L x

  13. Happy Gotcha Day to you both and Dudley! :)
    Both your cards are fabulous, such beautiful papers, they are so useful for quick cards!

  14. They are lovely Di. Slimline cards look so grown up! x

  15. wow, so beautiful!
    yes, Happy Gotcha Day to you both and Dudley!

  16. What gorgeous festive cards, Di and I love the beautiful sentiments you used. I agree with Sarah that the slimline design really makes them so elegant, and what a bonus that they were quick to make too. I hope the new duck toy is settling in lol!
    I hope you are well,
    Take care

  17. That's a beautiful pair of Christmas cards with wonderful sentiments! Congrats to Dudley on his 4 year anniversary of finding his forever home. It's been a great match for all of you :) Honka Honka!

  18. Wow those image papers and your stamped sentiments work perfectly together and I really love the slimline designs. I'm commenting backwards here so I already know how Dudley's Honka Duck swap went and had to laugh!

  19. Time sure does fly--4 yrs?! Your cards are beautiful with those neat papers!
