Happy Rudolph Day
Thank you all for your concern and good wishes for Jim. He is doing very well. The bed rail is installed so we shouldn’t have any more late night dramas. I did it but I think it's time I admit I've gotten to old for doing such things as installing bed rails.
Although there are now two forest fires near by they are both under control and there isn’t as much smoke to deal with. The weather here has been made to order gorgeous. Which has been most welcomed by our fabulous firefighters. Comfortable sunny days with a bit of a fall nip in the morning air. Yikes I’ve miss summer completely!
For my card I used the Father Christmas stamp from Cloud 9 Xmas stamp set which I won way back in the May Rudolph Day Challenge. The set was donated by our lovely Brenda of Butlers Abroad I must admit I made this card the day I received the set back in June but my world went pear shaped and I never posted it. It is a collection of this, that and the next thing that was already on my desk. The lace and ribbon were headed for the trash, the SB Floral Flourish, the red SB Labels Four and the background had all been rejected from other projects. I’ve stamped the background and image with StazOn then distressed everything including the lace with Tea Dye DI.
Why not make something festive and join Sandra for her fun Rudolph Day Challenge. There is a fun stamp to be won this month.
And from the just for fun department: I’ve made a dozen of these fun buttons for the Craft Fairs. I found the buttons in a clearance bin. I printed the sentiment, stamped and colored the little hats, hand cut the circles to size and put it all together in a flash. Sorry about the glare, there was just no getting round it.
Be well my friends. I wish you all the lovely weather we are enjoying here.
