April Rudolph Days

Well, the computer is back and working again so I can now enter my card I made for the April Rudolph Days Challenge. I am so happy that I no longer have to just rely on the iPad as that was not fun! So here is the card I made for the challenge.


I chose to use the Picket Fence Studio Christmas Poinsettia star. This is a huge stamp  and I could not get all of it on an A2 card but just the portion I used looks great I think. The sentiment is also from Picket Fence Studio and is from the String of Lights stamp set. I used my old water based markers which I rejuvenated with some dipping in a little tub of water. The sentiment was stamped onto white card stock and then placed over the bottom of the poinsettia.

Thanks so much for putting up with my last two posts. I know they were really shabby the way I did them with the iPad but at least I got something posted this week. I found out I have too much stuff on my computer so a cleaning is in order.  I hope  all are well and until next time please take care.

God bless,
Verna

WOWZA, Verna, this is a gorgeous bold and beautiful Christmas card! I love aqua and red together for a holiday card and they work perfectly here!! I really like the font on that sediment, too. Take care and keep safe! I'm glad you got your computer back! Hugs, Darnell

I agree with the poster above...this is indeed GORGEOUS!
It is the impact of that fabulous poinsettia. I love it off the page like that!

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.

Yay! Glad to see your computer up and running again! We rely on our computers so much that it is a pain when something goes wrong. Your Rudolph Day poinsettia is beautiful! I need to get my card made - I am behind this month!

Your partial poinsettia image looks great; I really like how it goes off the edge of your focal panel. Glad to hear your computer issue was resolved.

What a stunning card Verna - love how you used the stamp, and your rejuvenating of the markers has given you a wonderful result. So glad you computer is up and running again - I call mine my social life in a can.
Stay safe

This is so pretty with the offset poinsettia, and I love the colors too! Computer problems seem to be an issue for all of us these days, myself included.

Your poinsettia looks wonderful! The nice thing about large stamps is that there are different ways you can use them. I didn't think your last two posts looked shabby. Glad for you that you got your computer back!
