Good evening, here are some cards I made in order to enter this month's Rudolph Days Challenge. I am trying to enter the challenge every month this year, nearly didn't make it this time and it's only March!.
It was my birthday back in January and my husband treated me to some gorgeous Lavinia stamps, I still haven't had time to play with them all yet so I decided it was time to ink up the magnificent Magnus. I liked how the card turned out so  I made another using different coloured inks for the background and changing the Berry stamp for the trees.

Apologies for this wonky photo!

It's been a fantastic day here, warm and sunny, had a lovely afternoon in the garden with a friend (it's allowed!!!) who brought Lottie, her year old Cockapoo for puppy playtime with Marvin. He had a wonderful time...I don't think poor Lottie quite knew what hit her.... 
After Lottie had gone home Marvin slept for two hours solid...oh the peace! 
Thanks for visiting

A really super RD card gorgeous background and a lovely image, like the double stitching too. It was also my birthday in January but your Hubby didn't buy me any lovely stamps like this but I did get some vouchers from our local Samuels Taylors craft shop £55 to be exact and not been able to use them yet due to lockdown and with a Woodware stamp to be returned as I had already got it, so just can't wait for them to open up again.
