Rudolph Day

Well goodness time does fly past as its time for Rudolph Day again over at Scrappy Mo's. Here is my card.

I used a new Christmas embossing folder from Sheena Douglass, brayered over it very gently with Versamark then embossed with WOW embossing powder. I think I need a bit more practise at the technique as I got some ink in the middle of the leaves. 

It's time for another Roy update - he's now walking unaided and is getting a little bit of use back into his right hand. That will be an ongoing process for about a year as all the nerves were damaged. The even better news is that they are hoping to do a home visit in the next two weeks to see what help he will need and all being well they think he should be home by the end of August. I can't wait!


  1. Lovely work Sue, an elegant card, thanks for popping over, Shaz in Oz.x

  2. That's encouraging news about Roy - I hope he's able to come home soon. I love the technique you've used on the card, really elegant effect

    1. Glad the glasses were a success - I spent three quarters of an hour in the pharmacy and still came away with only two of the three items on my prescription so I have to go back on Friday. And while I was in there they dealt with two lost prescriptions and one lost parcel. It's chaos in there!

  3. Just beautiful! Such an elegant card, super technique. xx

  4. Brilliant news about Roy. Sounds really positive and usually once home, people recover quicker. Great card and love this technique, Very effective. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. What a stunning card, love the delicate blue shade.

    Great news on your Hubby.

    Your card is very pretty. I have not yet tried this technique...yours looks perfect and I do like the soft colour and sparkle you used.

    Thanks for taking part in the July Rudolph days Challenge.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  9. It looks fabulous, Sue. Love that large corner motif, and your embossing looks just fine to me. Excellent combination of your colors to create such an icy feeling. So pleased to hear that things on the home front are going forward in a happy way also. Take care, and TFS & joining in with Rudolph Day. Hugs

  10. Wow Sue....this is beautiful....I bought the embossing folder but haven't tried it have inspired me! xxxx

  11. Oh Sue, I'm so happy for you and Roy. He will be so much happier at home and you won't be running back and forth. It sounds like he is making progress in his recovery and will continue to do so. This is a stunning card. I was wow'ed when I saw it. The soft colors and the shine to it, oh my, beautiful.

  12. Sue, this is really spectacular! I'm not quite wrapping my head around how you did it, but I sure do love it! And I'm so delighted to hear that Roy is making such wonderful progress on his recovery! I pray that he continues apace so that he can come home as soon as possible!! Huge hugs, Darnell
