Rudolf day for March

Here I am with a couple of cards for Rudolf Day. The first is an inkylicious tree in a snowy landscape. The embossing folder is from Sheena Douglass, which I picked up in the sales last year.
My second card has a Digi from Teri Sherman's Delicious Doodles, coloured with Be Creative alcohol markers.
I used the same embossing folder. Now you may notice there are no sentiments on these. I want to use quite a small stamp and I have temporarily mislaid it, so rather than searching for it, I'll add the sentiment later!
Do pop over to Scrappy Mo's blog and take a look at the DT cards. There is lots of inspiration! I am going to try and make several cards for April's Rudolf day as I haven't made as many as I had made this time last year.
We have a ridiculous arrangement for our Easter holidays from school, in that I have good Friday and Easter Monday off, back to school for 4 days then two weeks off. The down side of this is we will have two extra days to do before the summer holiday, so don't finish until 26th July, and on top of that I am only off for one week when Meg is here.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments

Love these two Rudolph Day cards Sally.

Who on earth devised THAT school timetable then? Had they been drinking hooch in the Playground Tree house?

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Two gorgeous cards Sally, I especially love the digi on the second and have used it myself on many cards in the past. I'm sure it will make an outing again this year. How inconsiderate of the school to mess your time off up and stop you spending it with Megan. I'm sure you will make the most of what time you do have though. Happy Easter.

Hello Sally, two fabulous cards, one traditional and the other quite contemporary, great designs both. Your school hols are quite different to ours here in the Highlands, but I hope you find time to enjoy them, Kate x

Gorgeous cards. I love the elegant die cut on the first card and the fab image on the second.
Thank you for playing along at Rudolph Day

Lovely cards, the colouring on the second one is superb again. This "spring break" business they've done with the school holidays is a pain, isn't it? I suppose the only bonus is that you have a couple of short working weeks!

Pretty embossing on both cards! I really like these!
