The First Rudolph Day 2014

Ahhhh,,,,, it's time for another Rudolph Day....thought you were done seeing my Christmas cards, at least for awhile?  Well, every month between now and Christmas of 2014, I am hoping to share my latest cards.  Hey, this will keep me creating so I will be ready at mailing time. 

This year's Rudolph Day challenge is just a little bit different.  I think you'll love the changes.  I'm not going to list the new rules, you'll just have to check them out HERE.  I hope you will want to play along and when you do, be sure to link your creations. 

Well here goes: 
This is number 1 and you are going to see a theme.  I'm using snippets for all 5 of these cards.  I have a sheet of graphics that are filled with post cards and vintage art.  So, each of my cards will have one or more of these images.  If you look at past posts, you'll see I made a mini album using The KaiserCraft  6 1/2 inch paper pad - St. Nicholas.  After completing the album there were lots of paper pieces left over.  What better place to use them....Here's card number 2:
Want to see number 3:
How about number 4:'s number 5:
The cards with the wide ribbon are covering up places that are missing pieces of card stock.  It was a good way to use up smaller pieces.  The insides are pretty much the same for all 5.  So, I'll only show one of the insides. 
So that's it from me.  I planned on making 10 Christmas cards this month.  I'm hoping to get a few more made, but you sometimes gets in the way of plans. 

I think I'll be skipping over to link these to Di's blog to post these snippet cards.  Check out Di's blog page HERE.  Di, I've got to agree with you.  Making a batch is much easier than making just one.  Kind of like cookies!
