It's Time for Rudolph Days!

Hello my crafty friends and since it is past the 25th that means it is time for Rudolph Day! I love Rudolph Day even though I don't always get to participate each month. My goal is to do just that, but I tend to fall short. Maybe this will be my year....we shall see. Anyway it starts on the 25th of each month and all you have to do is make a Christmas card to play along. There might be a few rules, but just go over and read for yourself. It's a great way to keep adding to that stash of Christmas cards all year long. If I'm not mistaken there are lots of Christmas challenges all year long. I have problems just keeping up with one, so that is what I will stick with. lol 

So my card is a complete CAS from Bev over at Happy Dance blog. (Please check our Bev's blog, you won't be disappointed) I saw her card a few years back and fell in love with it but didn't have that stamp set. Wanted to buy it but never did that either. You can see her card here.  It's the last card before the comments. So I had this digital kit from Nitwit Collections and I knew how I wanted to use this certain image to recreate Bev's card. Bev's card is a CAS card where as mine isn't, but other than that it is a complete copy. sigh Be nice if I came up with my own ideas wouldn't it?!! Anyway I hope you still enjoy this card, I think it came out so cute and I made 6 of them. Might even make some more cause I think it is so dang cute! lol Thanks for the inspiration Bev!!! I used my Cricut and the digital files to print and cut the Santa face, the plaid paper and the sentiment. Easy peasy!

As always I appreciate your stopping by and visiting with me a spell. You always bring much needed sunshine into my life! I am still working on getting by to your blogs as well, so please be patient with me. I know I tend to disappear at times but my life seems to be going in different directions as of now. But I will be around from time to time.

Feathers, Feathers, Feathers-A Twofer Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I know it has been forever and a day since I've posted. Not really into blogging or doing much crafty stuff. Some cards here and there as I need them but that is about it. Will be doing my donations for our local Pink Out though and I hope to get pictures of the things I make and show you all. I have been coloring in adult coloring books. Been to cold to do much of anything else!  So I sit with my finger-less gloves on and color. The cold has also been taking it's toll on me physically and I've been having back problems as well. So not doing a whole lot but working and resting as I can. Went to 3 movies since New Years and that is about it. I also have a job with a new lady just right up the road, but maybe I told you about that already. Who knows with my mind!

Well I wanted to get in on the Twofer Card Challenge and I believe today is the last day to enter. I hope so anyway, so I will be getting in under the wire. Dang it, the challenge is closed. I hope you check it out though and play along for the next one! The challenge gives you a prompt for you to follow and you must make two different cards using the same stamps or dies of that prompt. Well the prompt was feathers. And that really threw me! lol Now you can interpret "feathers" however you would like. Like you can use a dream catcher because it has feathers hanging, or you can use a bird because birds have feathers, etc...get it? Sounds like fun right?!! So here is what I came up with. Not very creative and my first card was from Pinterest. The second one, which is so.....well I have no clue, but not good, was my idea. lol  Since I'm not sure when this challenge closes, I'm just putting my picture in without taking the time to edit it. Sorry!!!

As always my recipe will be down below. I want to thank you for stopping by, I know I'm way behind on commenting and I hope to get around soon to your blogs. Have patience with me please.
