April Rudolph Days Challenge - Winter Scene Christmas card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How are things going for you? We are shopping for quite a few people. As long as we stay healthy this is fine. We are happy to help. I wonder how long all of this will continue. We keep hearing of more and more people who have been affected.

I love entering the Rudolph Days Challenge every month. When I am struggling to craft I often start a session by making a Christmas card. I am finding it hard to craft at the moment. I think it has a lot to do with my hubby being around all the time and my new love of doodling. I keep looking out for things I can draw.

This card was made almost completely from Snippets. All I had to make from scratch was the card blank. The background was made with some left over pattered paper and some left over glitter care. 

The circles were left over from making a frame on another card. They were cut with the Double Pierced circle dies from Creative Expressions. I have lots of these deer already cut. The trees were cut with a Tattered Lace die. The moon came with a die set that came free with a magazine. The Happy Christmas was cut with a Crafter's Companion die. I have all my Snippets organised by colour so when I need to cut a sentiment or something else small I can easily find the colour I need. 

This is another card for my stash. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Stay safe and well

Happy Crafting

Another lovely card Jackie. I just checked out the link to the challenge and it looks a fun one, maybe just what I need to get my mojo back in gear. Sorry I haven’t been visiting much recently, I’m hoping to do better! Stay safe, Janet xx

This is just lovely Jackie.
I am getting to the point now where this is becoming the norm, who knows how long t will go for, fingers crossed wea ll come through fine.
Your not alone with the crafting though, so many friends have been saying the same thing, its very odd, maybe we are just amusing ourselves with other things.
Stay safe.xx
