Hello and it's time for another Rudolph Day Challenge for 2013.  I must confess I had not thought about this fun challenge as the month of January was drawing to a close, but was reminded when I saw some entries at other blogs. This cute Penny Black image had been colored but not used, so all it needed was to be put on a card front. I have been intrigued lately with recycling some of the pretty cards we received this past Christmas. We had one that had some pretty packages on the front, so I cut them off and popped them up on this one. The Penny Black image is called Santa & Friend and I saw it at Stamping for Pleasure (but at the moment I can't find the particular post- if I recall a-right, it was being gifted as a prize). I thought it was so adorable, and I searched on the internet & found it - at Simon Says Stamps.
- Colored the image with copics, on Copic Xpress paper
- diecut with S/Binders Labels 15.
- cardbase is a light kraft color
-  border from the Tim Holtz Christmas set was embossed on the bottom.
- Tsukineko Delicata with a sponge dauber for the gold accents on the embossed border
- added handcut recycled gifts 
I'm going to enter this in January's Rudolph Day Challenge...come along and see some wonderful cards. I'll be back in a bit with an entry for WOYWW. My pictures I took last night were a bit blurry, so I'll see if I can get a couple that are a little sharper. See you in a few minutes, and as always, thanks for stopping to visit. Hugs.
Edit: I think this one might qualify for the Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge if I can do this linking thing properly.


  1. This is a great image! Love the look on his face!

    Great idea to recycle the card bits and bobs. I chopped mine up into recyclable bits too, when I took down Xmas. We are both ready for those recycle challenges!

  2. Super cute card Mary! The image is so adorable and your coloring is fab.

  3. Fabulous card, great colouring and I love the addition of the presents.
