Monday and ... you've guessed it, it's another week!

Morning readers,

Hope you good peeps are enjoying your extended weekend today and that the weather is kind to you.

Since yesterday was Rudolph Day but I don't post on Sundays .... here's my August Rudolph Day make - my 2019 quota is coming along thanks to all these Christmas challenges!! Woo Hoo!

My card, with its hand stamped background
And a closer view of my image panel

The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card, cut to fit
  • Snippets of card in white, red and black
  • Nesting circle dies to cut my circles and WRMK nesting banners for my sentiment
  • Dark Room Door large dotty image stamped using Versafine Clair tulip red ink to create the polka dot background.. I used my MISTI here as I needed to ink a couple of times to get an evenly stamped image
