Rudolf day for March

 It is time for Rudolf day again over at Scrappy Mo's! This month I have made two cards which are both snowy scenes and feature rabbits (or hares) and trees. All the stamps are from Inkylicious.  I have been searching for a particular sentiment stamp but not found it, so at the moment they have no sentiment. Maybe it is time for a spring clean, lol!
I added glitter using a quicky glue pen and some silver liquid pearls for berries on this second one. I am still not sure if the memento Paris Dusk works particularly well (blue hares??). I think I prefer the first card with its more natural colours (Stormy sky distress ink and tuxedo black versafine). I also added a few squiggles of sakura clear stardust pen along the snowdrifts.
Do join in with Rudolf day if you can. All you need to do is make a Christmas card or two for 25th of the month, and by Christmas you will have a lovely stack ready to go!
I am also linking my cards to Merry Monday where the challenge this week is Trees. Thanks for the heads up, Di!
Thanks for looking!

I love both of these Sally, the glitter gives a really frosty look to the trees.

They are both beautiful...at first I agreed about loving the second card a bit better...but then I rolled back down the page to reach the comments box and decided they are both equally beautiful. The blue one has a singular beauty of it's own. Very serene and peaceful looking!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

Both are a delight Sal, impossible to choose a fav. And I eventually got round to joining in at Mo's.

I love both of these wonderful cards Sally, especially the glistening (glitter) of the trees.

2 Fab cards Sally - I still haven't made a single card for Mo's challenge - don't know where the days are going - I spent a day looking for a die - and I fear it might have got swept into the bin - so another day gone with no makes!

Beautiful scenic cards, and I like the blue hare, it makes the scene more wintery!

Dropped by from Merry Monday to say..."both these cards are fabulous". Great scenes for winter.

MaryH said...

Love it in both colors. The Paris dusk on #2 makes it look like a cool twilight on a snowy evening. So of course the rabbit would have a blue cast to his dark winter coat! You do these snow scenes so impressively, even down to the snowy branches. Wonderful moonlight on the snow hills - Love both of these beautiful cards. TFS & Happy wkend

You really know how to make a scene. I think both color combos work well as both portray a quiet snowy evening. Very lovely!
