Rudolph Days

Just this morning I was bemoaning that August isn't over with yet but that's a good thing because that gives me time to squeak in a card for Rudolph Days. I've had this random piece of plaid paper on my desk for weeks so I thought I'd use that and this birdie stamp was on the top of my Christmas stash. I thought about adding die cut pine boughs or some sort of flourish to this card but I decided to keep it simply simple (KISS) instead.
Dio wanted you to know that he was very helpful in making this card as he worked on his supervisory skills. He even got another underling to come and help me tie the bow. He here is posing with my card. That's my Copic marker bin that Dio is sitting on. It's become his favorite place to hang out, which makes it hard to color.
The Fine Print: Birdie stamp by Penny Black, designer paper by DCWV, gold embroidery floss from my stash, and dies by Spellbinders.

Dio looks very proud of his work Judy. He's got a lovely thick soft looking furry coat.

A very sweet card. The robin is really cute. Barbxx

This is a sweet keep it simple card. That robin is so lovely and the bow the kitty helped with is pretty.
Thanks for taking part in the Aug Rudolph Days Challenge.

That's such a cute image, and you colored the stocking to perfectly match the plaid dsp! Winner winner - catfish dinner! (for Dio) :)

Well done, Dio. Princess Judy doesn't play in the Rudolph challenge all the time, so it's good to know you supervised her closely enough for her to enter this month.

The image is so cute you were instinctively correct in not detracting from it. Great card and cute mention of the kitties.

Cute Robin card, like the gold twine too. Perhaps you should let handsome Dio play with your copics, as reward for supervising xxx

Oh, plaid paper. I love it! And Christmas plaid is even better. Such a cute little bird! I just visited 2 of my grand kitties for the first time last week. One of them has the same coloring as your kittie. Thanks for playing along with Rudolph Days!

What a sweet card--love the PB image & your coloring! Glad Dio let you get into the Copics! He certainly has the look of a great supervisor!

Way to go on using up something that was lazing around on your desk (and I DON'T mean Dio!) . . . I'm referring to the plaid paper! LOVE that robin stamp. Great card.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
