Rudolph Days

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for all of your well wishes, unfortunately I got all the way to the hospital on Saturday to be told my op had been cancelled due to the anaesthetist being off sick and that I should have got a call the day before ! I was a bit annoyed as you can imagine having psyched myself up all week and also the fact that my friend had travelled nearly 2 hours to be there with me as hubby was looking after our grandaughter.
Anyway now I am going in tomorrow morning instead so have spent the day in my craft room trying to chill out glad when tomorrow evening comes and it is over and done with :)

So while I was in my craft room today I managed to make several cards, one of them being my very last minute entry to Scrappymo's Rudolph Day Challenge which I have just managed by the skin of my teeth !

For my card I used a lovely image from Buddly Crafts called Snowy can find it here
I coloured it with my Promarkers and added snow to the trees with a white gel pen. I found a snippet of Pink Petticoat paper (Now The Lovely Studio) which I matted onto grey card, the image was matted onto the same card and I rounded the corners with my Xcut punch. The sentiments are from DigiStamp Boutique...I love the font :)
I finished with a couple of Joycraft die cut trees, some white satin ribbon and punched snowflake.

All of our snow has gone now but I'm secretly hoping for some more on Sunday as it would be the only time I can ever remember snow for my birthday hehe
Stay safe those that still have snow where you are,

That's all for now,
Hugs Kaz xxx

Oh no, Kaz, how infuriating! I hope you had a happy time crafting today. All the best for tomorrow!

What a great card this is, the cottage looks so snug amidst the snow! Stay warm!

love Mags B x

Beautiful card, Kaz. I think this will be the scene here tomorrow or Friday, when snow is predicted. We've only had a few flurries of snow this week.
How frustrating that your op was cancelled. Fingers crossed everything goes well tomorrow. xx

That's awful Kaz, bad enough having to psych yourself up once! what bad luck.
Hope all goes well tomorrow.
Fabulous card btw, lovely stamp and die cuts...a snowy scene is very topical right now :)))

Great card to compensate for your upset. You would think the Hospital would let you know of the cancellation...times have changed since I finished nursing that's for sure...💖 [aNNie' blog]

Hi Kaz, what a bother with the first op being cancelled and failing to let you and undoubtedly others of the cancellation especially the time you spent travelling into the hospital. I hope all has gone well with the surgery and you are at home recovering and being pampered... a stunning white Christmas card, love the little scene and the finishing touches you added to the card... have a wonderful weekend... Megan
