Rudolph Day ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’ve been digging through my piles of snippets and pile of images ready and waiting to be used and here is the end result …

An A5 card
Great for posting too!
Such gorgeous shimmer!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #452 Old Favourites: the stencil and paints
Country View Crafts Challenge Anything Goes 
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #158 Anything Goes
Scrappy Mo’s Rudolph Day Challenge Anything Christmas Goes 

This was so quick to create! I had already created the bauble panel over Christmas so when I decided to shrink my snippet pile as well as create another Christmas card this was very quick to put together. I have used an A5 size card blank to which I glued the lilac and putple snippet straight onto. I then added the bauble panel and a die cut and that was it done! Another Christmas card ready and waiting to be sent and a happy female with a few less snippets. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Your bauble panel is lovely! It must have felt great to be able to create a card with your snippets. This card would also be good over at Pixies Crafty Workshop where the theme is always must use snippets.

Thanks for taking part in the January Rudolph Days Challenge.
