Rudolph Day In July

i joined sandra’s challenge to make christmas cards on rudolph day – the 25th of each month; it’s a great way to build up the card stash for the holidays. i watercoloured santa teddy with distress inks, although i don’t think the photo reflects the real colour and red is just one of those tricky colours to edit.  i’m also entering this into The Stamp Man challenge to use anything by tim and Winter Wonderland challenge to use holly.  thanks for popping by.

Where Are Those Eggs?

this month’s forever friends challenge is to create a card without using designer papers, which is how i started making cards; but i’ve been using papers more and more, so it actually was a challenge! everything in the image panel is watercoloured and flower soft was added to teddy’s tail. i’m also submitting this to the flower soft monthly and easter challenges and the spotted canary spring challenge at splitcoaststampers. thanks for popping by.
