NUBUS and Rudy Day Challenges

Hello and yes I'm back again. lol I had some cards made for Rudolph Day and for Darnell's NBUS challenge and I have just been sitting on them for about a week now. Don't ask me why,  just not been in the groove at all. Anyway, I made 2 each of the skate's and mitten's cards. I used My Creative Stitched Oval dies, the skates and mittens are also from MCT and the poinsettia's are a die from Simon Says. Sentiments and pine is from MCT stamps. I like how cute and simple these cards are and I love that I added 4 more cards to my Christmas card stash. Yay for me! The NBUS was the oval dies as well as the mittens, skates and poinsettia dies. 




These two cards I made last month, but because the month was short I didn't get them in to play along with Rudy day, so I'm showing them here.  I think I used the Cricut cart Simple Holiday Cards to make this one. I kept my pieces and made another card just like it only in reverse. I think it made such pretty, simple cards for my Christmas stash. 




Since I used some snippets on my first two cards (for the skates, mittens and poinsettia) I'm going to go over the pond to play at the Playground.  I haven't been there in quiet a while so I'm looking forward to playing along. Of course I will also link up with Darnell's NBUS challenge to use your never been used schtuff, which I'm so sad to say I have a lot of! And last but not least I'm playing along with Rudolph Day. Thanks everyone and thanks for taking time from your day to visit me. Your comments always make my day brighter! Crafty hugs, Brenda

Hiya Brenda!
What fabulous cards you have made. You put me to shame...I am such a slowpoke at getting a card finished and you have a plethora of beautiful cards here!

The dies are all wonderful but I love the skates die...it is so special...just the right size!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

I love how you got two cards from one die cut. I can't decide if I like the gold better or the sparkle on the second one. And those mittens are adorable. The poinsettias are lovely. I may have to add that die to my wish list.

What a fabulous collection of cards you've shared today! WOW! They're all so beautifully detailed and although I love poinsettias, I love the blue card with the ice skates! I'm loving the diagonal stripes and blue colors! Well done on all of them!

Beautiful cards The framing on the top 2 are really a fun element to the card :) My favorite is the glittered up one I like how you used the negative to work up the glitter (at least that is what it looks like you did :)
Hugs my friend

Look at you, getting ahead with your Christmas collection! The skates and mittens are simply marvelous, while the two made with the die cuts (seriously, I need to remember to use the negatives...or positives *grin) are out-of-the-park lovely! I should have been making Christmas cards on Saturday when the snow was swirling about! Yeesh! Oh well, the wee buds on the trees are starting to peek, so hopefully Spring will make its presence known!
