Prancing Rudolph!

Good Day to Everyone, hope you are well and having a good day.
I've spent a bit of time colouring, so relaxing, and in between washing floors. I've eventually learned to take tasks a bit more slowly, doing a wee bit, then a rest before I carry on with the next. I have to keep reminding myself that there is no need for me to hash and bash to get housework done any longer now I'm retired. That's been a slow process though.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my Wedding set. I wasn't given a remit in any way so just decided to do my own thing.

I wanted to join in with the Rudolph Challenge this month, so here is my card;
I've use this lovely prancing stag from the free stamps from Creative Stamping Magazine, the sentiment and snowflakes from the same set, all embossed with Wow EP in Silver and Gold. On to black card and the base card is silver from Dovecraft. I drew a silver border with a Kuretake pen.

I buy this magazine almost every month.... well depending what the stamps are, and don't get around to using them, and they are really, really good, so I've decided to try and give them an airing.

Nothing much planned for the weekend, food shopping will be the most exciting thing happening I think. What about you, anything planned? Whatever you do, enjoy it and see you for the next CCC cards on Sunday,
I would like to enter my card into;

This is lovely, very elegant. You are right about the housework but I tend to do the whole house so it is all done but hubby does the hoovering and floor washing. We are going to a charity jumble sale tomorrow and food shopping. Sunday we are going to the theatre to see The Billy Fury Story.

Hi Kate,
Happy Rudolf Days.
I think there are Gremlins about as I hace arrived from the Rudolf Challenge, but I got your Rudolf entry for January so after a bit of hunting found the right one.
So I think you may find Sam's comment on there.
I love this wonderful card and the prancing Rudolf in gold embossing is gorgeous against the lovely black background.
Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT
