Caroling Cardinals for Rudolph Day February 2018

Good evening, and welcome. I'm skating just under the wire to play in February's Rudolph Day....so best get to it! You ask what is Rudolph Day (or as I usually call it "Rudy Day")? Well, it's an Anything goes as long as it's Christmas themed challenge, hosted by Sweet Maureen (Scrappymoi)...opens on the 25th of each month and closes whatever the last day of the month is. Easy peasy, so do join in. Helps to build a good stash come December.


Artful Stamper image (wood block, VOS), colored with copics, enhanced with gel pens, black nuvo drops (on the eyes) and some glitter and snow for them to dance upon. That center guy is doing some moves, isn't he?

- Spellbinders dies, Authentique 6x6 dp, and red top fold card base (Recollections)

- SU punched out sentiment...which was cut from a snippet of the Authentique pack.

Let's be off to that linky tool at Rudolph Day. Ya'll come back when you can, and big hugs going your way.

  1. Oh my goodness, Mary...those birds are fabulous.

    I save those dance moves for New Years Eve after a couple of Bailey's!!! Such a great image and a wonderful card. I also love the vivid colours. I am making a promise to myself a couple of months ago, to use stronger colours and so far, I think I have been keeping it. The "cookie cards were all strong colours for me and I have some birthday cards to post soon that keep to that promise as well.

    Thanks for making it over to Rudy Rays when you are just home from holidays...now that is dedication!

    Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge.

  12. I love that image. What a sassy Christmas card! The design is so cute! I too just made it under the wire for Rudy Days. I haven't done many Christmas cards so far this year so I feel like I am behind already. Both twins are sick again. Some kind of viral infection that is supposed to last 7-10 days. We were with them last weekend and then again Monday night so I am praying (and washing my hands often) that I don't come down with it too. But their poor mama may go out of her mind in the next 10 days. Have a wonderful day!

We are right in the middle of a cold spell with temperatures set to plummet even further. Not venturing outside and keeping busy in my craft room. Hugs Mrs A.
