Rudolph Day, WOYWW and Pixie's Crafty Workshop

I'm going to start by saying 5th Happy Anniversary to Julia and Happy whatever year you began sharing with WOYWW....You've all made Wednesdays so much fun, and Julia, thank you for being the special person you are.  If it weren't for you...Wednesdays would just be Wednesday!

I'll show you my desk in a is what I made for Rudolph Day!
I wanted to use up scraps, and I wanted to play with techniques.  The inspiration for this card was the striped bottom.  When I turned the paper over, I was thrilled to find the newspaper print on the reverse side.  I wanted to use rubber stamps, stencils, embossed images, dies, and layers.  As you can see I managed to do all of the above.  And here is the inside......
It's not too late, you can add your card to Rudolph Day, but hurry, because the last day of this month is the last day you can play along (at least for this month).

Ok, you've seen the finished project, here's how it all began.....
Not too messy today, and if you are a normal follower, you will notice I'm working  on a different desk.  This is the desk I use when I do my die cutting.  It's also the desk I use when I need to be standing more than sitting and today is that day. 

I am going to pop over to Pixie's Crafty workshop and post this card which was made with snippets.  The only piece that might be iffy, is the inside black layer....I had to cut it from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of black card stock.  Otherwise....All snippets.

Oops!  I think I was one card short on the Rudolph Day Challenge.  See, it pays to read the rules!  So, I ran, and when I say ran, I am not kidding, back to my craft room.  A few months back I made a card I really liked, so I made 3.  I had lots of pieces left, so I put them in an envelope to save for later.... Today became later.....Sarn, I appologize for not having two cards. is #2.
I added a bit of bling and this card is the same but different.  I'd show the inside, but it isn't quite  finished  and my honey wants me to think about dinner....I guess all the yard work he did while I was playing made him very hungry!  Next month, I will read the directions....I promise!

These are the challenges I entered:
WOYWW - 5th Anniversary
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Must Use Snippets
Rudolph Day - A Christmas Card

Thanks ladies for hosting these wonderful places to play!

So that's it for me today.  I'm off to see what everyone has been posting.
Happy Crafting,

  1. Hi Mary, happy WOYWW. Your Rudolph Day cards are fabulous ... I haven't found time yet to make mine for this month but maybe tomorrow :) Have a good week. Elizabeth x #97

  2. Look at you, Mary, combining all these wonderful blog venues into one post! Wonderful cards, all, using those snippets! I forgot about Sarn's two-rule last month and had to run, too! I'll never forget that again! Sadly, this month I can't manage it at all. Happy WOYWW 5th Anniversary! Hugs, Darnell #26

  3. You have been a very busy gal, love all the cards. See you in 11 short days

  4. See you really soon....we will start by shopping and having lunch at Lucille's!

  5. Happy WOYWW5, great desk - looks fairly tidy! well done on the cards. Helen 7

  6. Happy WOYWW Mary.

    Sorry I made you RUN and make another Rudolph Day card - but think of the extra calories you used up! See, card making can be good for you're figure too! LOL! Perhaps I should make running to make your cards a new RD Day rule, seeing as how you and Darnell are so good at it???? (I SAW that look you just threw at me!)

    Your snippety festive cards are truly lovely Mary. Thanks for playing along.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  7. Happy Anniversary. Gorgeous cards there Mary. Worth you running back to make a second. That Sandra is a task master isn't she?

  8. Wow - lots of busy there! I just can't get my head round making Christmas cards in May, I'm afraid. I need the pressure of the '11th hour' syndrome to kick start me!! Have a lovely week, Chris # 15 xx

  9. Bit late posting this week, hope you are having a great WOYWW anniversary week.
    Loving the cards.
    Happy crafting, Angela x 40

  10. Ooooh Wow Mary..... These are truly so beautiful and you really are so creative x

  11. Lovely cards. Happy WOYWW 5th Anniversary. Sue 57

  12. Great cards Mary - that Sarn is a hard task master isn't she?! I do so love how you 'stage' your cards - it makes such a difference to my boring ole pink background card I always use here :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  13. That first card is so wonderful and elegant. The second one is quite kicky too. All that running though... just reading about it made me need a nap. Thanks for the peek at the desk too. It's nice to have a second desk.

  14. Two great cards! The first is so elegant and stunning. The second one has that homey feel...the merry makes me think of hand stitching and the mittens remind me of my MIL's knitting!


Thank you for spending time visiting my blog. And thank you even more for your comments. I LOVE reading each and every one of them. Happy creating!
