Rudolph Day in June

Hi to all of you who are wondering if I had hibernated for good. The truth is that to start with I had lots going on, but since then I have a big problem with the computer and it's still not resolved. It means that I can't use my blog dashboard to write posts or to see my reading list. I can do this on my tablet, and I have managed to do some commenting by this means, but I apologise for not keeping right up to date. However I really wanted to enter the Rudolph Day Challenge as I missed last months and I am way behind with my Christmas cards. I am trying to do this on my tablet, and it is very frustrating as I can't make my photo go where I want it to. I will attempt to post it when I,m done  but I don't think I will be able to link it up to Scrappy Mo's for the Challenge from here though.
I used a new signature die to make my card, and cut it from a piece of white card which was cut slightly smaller than the front of the dark blue base card. Before sticking it down I put some double sided tape behind all the window openings and coloured  the cut out bits with a yellow Promarker  and put them back in place. I also stamped and embossed the star at this stage, using Versamark and WOW sparkle embossing powder. I stamped the wise men with part of a Stampendous stamp and the words are all Chocolate Baroque stamps. I used Brilliance Lightning Black ink for this, and then stuck the two layers together.                                                                                                             
I shall now see if I can post this and maybe even link it to The Rudolph Day Challenge.
Thank you if you are visiting here today and for bearing with me, I really hope to  get this problem sorted out soon. Any comments you leave are gratefully recieved, I hope to be back soon.
