Rudolph...


I have decided I DON'T like dark mornings. We do have lights in the barn but I wear a headlight, it's getting old so the elastic is getting a little saggy and keeps sliding down to my nose...not a good look but hey at 6.00am who cares!? I had a visitor this morning too, I picked up a stray bit of pony poo and thought it weighed a bit, on closer inspection it was a toad...yuk!! I screamed, dropped it, and then had to coax it into an empty bucket in order to put it somewhere safe!! That gave me a case of the heeby jeebies I can tell you. Anyway I really don't have time to be waffling so here's the card...


I am mighty sad that Pollycraft is closing so I've had a bit of a final spend. This one, however, was a freebie. I coloured him with Promarkers. As you can see I did a stepper card for a change and it also meant I was able to use up some scraps. I sorted out my dies yesterday so had a bit of a snowflake cutting session, also using up scraps. The little sentiment was cut out and popped on a ribbon buckle die which fitted perfectly. There is a rusty bell attached to the bow too, which seems to have disappeared.
