Rudolph Day November

Awwww this is the last Rudolph Day of the year :(
I really have enjoyed joining in,
because not only do I get to see lots of lovely creations
from the other participants,
but I get ahead with my xmas cards too!

Today I'm sharing a Digi stamp design from the lovely Sarn

I decoupaged some petals and hearts, coloured in with marker pens,
added some coloured dots in the centre, gems and some wink of stella that doesn't show

This one was coloured in with wink of luna pens,
which is like a metallic paint

I added some shimmer, and gold glitter this time.
The sentiment is SU Endless Wishes

Just to prove there are two of them
here they are side by side

The more I played with these images, the more I fell in love with them
I'm hooked on Sarndangles!

I should add that my friend purchased the Digi,
and let me play with a couple of images she'd printed off,
so please respect Sarn's copyright.

You may discover some friends and I are having a bit of fun with Sarn,
so I'd like to share the cards that I'd actually made for this Rudolph Day,
before a naughty playmate brought those lovely images above to our recent play day!

I was given some DSP in a secret santa present
(I know, but I was 'forced' to open it, honest!) 
The right hand ones have the paper adhered to the top edge,
a recent layout I'd seen and wanted to try

I haven't got the tree punch, but I do have the triangle,
so made my own lickle trees

Sorry for the long post,
but a BIG thank you to Sarn,
for not only Rudolph Day, but her Sarndangles too!

Looking forward to joining in next year,
with a new organiser, Scrappy Mo
as Sarn is sadly retiring.



  1. I am so glad I saw your post as I have had lots of internet problems lately and did not realise Sarn was sharing some of her beautiful ´dangles`. I just love that first card, and will have to have a go at it. I love your colouring and the embellishments, especially the red ones..
    The second set of cards are also great. Wonderful use of basic shapes. I like them all. Kate x

  2. WOW - what a lovely surprise! Thank you for sharing two festive cards using one of my Sarndangle images. Lovely to see it decoupaged and coloured in . . . I don't "DO" digi's myself, as you know!!!!

    Also LOVE the modern designs and layout of your Secret Santa present that you were FORCED to open!

    Thanks for playing along Lesley . . . goodness only knows what you and the other 2 elves were up to on Sunday if I'm to expect you all to be having fun with me this Rudolph Challenge!!!! Spect that means you'll all be playing me up . . . . .!

  14. Loving your Sarntangle cards. Just popped over and bought them too!! YOUR fault and I hold YOU responsible!!

  17. Your embellished Sarntangles are beautiful! I'm going to have to look into getting some of these! Love your lickle trees too!

  18. hi lesley, thanks so much for popping by to comment on my rudolph day cards! you've made some beautiful holiday cards with saran's images; i especially love the red and green poinsettia and the creative tree design ones are very cute!

  19. Oh my gosh, you got so many cards made for this challenge! I feel lazy...teehee

    Your cards made with Sarn's Sarntangle are my faves. Love the way you paper pieced them.

    Hope to see you at my blog, for the January Rudolph Day Challenge.

  20. Loved the Sarntangle poinsettia designs and the beautiful set of cards you've turned out. That decoupage is so very stunning. Then I scrolled down to see the blue & yellow quartet, and loved those too. Really liked the paper layout as you've done it. Will have to try that...it's very effective. TFS & I'm waiting on the tree punch & stamp set in my next order. My SU person has allowed me to use her set as she's finished with her cards. So far, I've not had any play time to use it! Hugs

  21. The sarndangle is great! And love the way you used the triangles :-)
    Thanks for your kind comments :-)
