Dasher turned into Rudolf

Morning everyone, well we are back.  Townsville was wonderful but we are both very exhausted.  My daughter from all the touch footy and me from all the driving.  The team played wonderfully well but alas other teams played better than them.  Saturday was one win, one draw and one tried everything. :-)  Sunday only one game which was a loss.  There is always next year.

Returned yesterday to hubby with a handful of info that he had dug up on the weekend about our family holiday.  So when I unpacked I sat down with my cuppa tea to read it all.  Put my cuppa tea next to the open laptop and accidently bumped my cup when placing it on the bench which meant about 1/2 teaspoon of tea landed on the mousepad section of the laptop.  Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!  Of course now it is not working properly.  I have just driven all the way into town to get the computer experts to look at it and fingers and everything crossed it will work again without too much cost.

Now for my card.  I bought myself the new Dasher Stamp for Stampin Up.  I so love his antlers.  Although, I have changed him for this card as he is now Rudolf with his bright red shiny nose.  I started with my white BE card and then used the new Holly Jolly Christmas Design paper from Stampin Up.  Had to have a try of the Stampin Up embossing folder embosses so lovely and deep, I used Stampin Old Olive for this. Cut out a banner to stamp Merry Christmas on.  The ink here and the layer behind Rudolf is Stampin Cherry Cobbler....such a lovely rich red colour.

I will try and catch up with everyone during this week.  First I must catch up on the washing though.  Happy Monday everyone.
