Rudolph day

This is a quick Christmas card for Rudolph day using a decoupaged tree that has been around on my workspace since Christmas, waiting to be used. It was rescued from a gift card from M & S.

The strips of spotted card are snippets left from a previous card (they aren't crooked irl - it's the angle of the photo) and the poinsettia was from Hobbycraft.

This is also for:

  1. What a fabulous tree, Hazel! The red and white colour combo is so classic, too! Thanks for joining in at CRAFT Challenge!

    I hope the travelling to and from hospital is not too big a burden. It's a pity the NHS doesn't give 'Air Miles'! Take care!

    much love, Maggie xxx

  2. I love when you can manage to recycle as well as destash!


  3. A great card, love the tree and the deep colours. Thanks so much for playing this time at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. Good luck and hope to see you again soon. Andree (DT)
