March Rudolph Day ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Anyway to finish the month I knew I neeeed to create a card for Rudolph Day and here it is ...

A 148mm square card
Texture and depth
With shimmer and shine too!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

For some reason or other I have created a lot of cards and other projects this month so much so that I am going to be taking the next couple of days off, lol! Very rare for me but I need it. I do have journal pages finished and ready to share but I’ve decided to leave posting them until next month so that I can complete several chores and get some rest. Anyways to ensure I keep my pledge to create at least one Christmas card each month I prepared my card well before the end of the month, I’m not used to being this organised with Christmas but last years early prep paid off so well that I’m sticking to it this year again. 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

You have achieved lots of shimmer on this pretty card, karen. Once again, you have accomplished that arty feel to your card. I like the stitching on the two sides and the sentiment is fab.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.
