Rudolph Day 1

Good morning all.

We should have arrived in Gore for an overnight stay after our boat trip in Milford Sound  this morning. Update...Milford was very very wet, averaging about 8-10 inches of rain a day over the last few days! We got drenched...on the upside the warterfalls were fantastic but we couldn't see much else because of the cloud cover. 

Meanwhile we've got the first Rudolph Day of the year to celebrate, here's my card.

Another of the Joanna Sheen decoupage sheets...this one had matching background paper and as the sentiment was cut off the image I used one of the matching tags and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. Dies from Wplus9 and Spellbinders.


  1. They really are great images. I love your decoupaged Santa. A very happy Christmas card. Barbxx

  7. This looks great!
    It has a bit of a masculine feel. I am always drawn to those as DH has a few friends who are divorced and still single. I try to make them the masculine twist cards!

    Finally we got some decoupage kits in the craft stores here. Bought one before Christmas and perhaps your card will inspire me to drag out my kits and get started!

  8. Sounds like your still having lots of fun Carol and l hope the weather isn't spoiling it too much for you's your card as always is so lovely xx
