Rudolf day for January

Hi There! It is the 25th of the month and time for the first Rudolf day of 2016. I have made two very different cards for this month. For my first I used a be creative wonder sheet, a frantic stamper die, indigo blu mega flake and some of the narrowest wonder tape on a linen finish card.
My second card is a cute one. For this one I used a digi from Digistamp Boutique, coloured it with Be creative alcohol markers and added Inkylicious fluffy puffy stuff for the fur trim. The base card was embossed with a Sheena embossing folder.
 You can see the dimension of the Fluffy puffy stuff and a bit of the twinkle from the ultra fine glitter that I added below.
Do pop over to Scrappy Mo's and take a look at her inspiration and the prize this month - a rather gorgeous Die from Memory box!
Before I go I thought you might like a piece of my Whiskey Mac Ginger cake that I baked for our Burn's Night celebrations.
It was quite boozy with some single malt drizzled over it! If you fancy trying it for yourself you can find the recipe here.
Thanks for looking!

Totally love the first card, simple and stunning. Really cute image and a lovely embossing folder on the second card.
Don't let Sarn see the cake or you will have none left, that is if you have any left as I believe it is Burns night tonight.

Great pair of cards for Rudolph Day Sal and yummy looking boozy bake.

Actually have my card made to post for Rudolph Day, though I had better start the year off better than last as my intentions never carried though.

Both beautiful cards, but have a liking for the first one, with it's glitter, although saying that the texture on the second is great too. OK I can't decide after all! Both gorgeous.

Your cake looks so yummy. If my oven was good enough I'd bake this!
