Snippets challenge389 & October Rudolph day Challenge

 Good Morning and welcome to my post
Well did you remember to put your clocks back?
Which we all know shorter days and darker night's
It's hard enough with Co-v19 losing the hour only adds 
To longer and dismal days but what can you do but keep busy
And my way is crafting and here is my card made from a batch
l made some time back
Items used 
Scalloped/Cream/white card
Poinsettia paper pack & added the image from the same pack
Not a lot of work to this one but equally as nice
My challenges for this card is

As it's nearing Halloween l made this card years ago
My grandson Nathan and his sisters Tayla & Poppy love to celebrate it
And DiL Paula is really good at Halloween they have lots done on the inside
Even a black tree with all the trimmings 
Well as it's Nathans Birthday 30th October l altered this card for his birthday 
Just thought l would post it as there are lots of cards being shown
And he will absolutely love it hope you do too
Thank you for your time 
Have a lovely day whatever your plans
Take care stay safe

A gorgeous Christmas card Sandra and such a cute Halloween birthday card too. My brother in law goes completely mad with the outside of his house at Halloween, but I must admit it is amazing to see. Have a good week x

Lovely Christmas card Sandra - and I do love the one for Nathon as well! I know what you mean about the clocks having changed - it could be depressing if we let it! Keep on crafting my lovely friend!

Your Christmas card is BEAUTIFUL Sandra!! I think lots of people are celebrating anything they can this year otherwise it's a wasted year or two!! Your daughter-in-law's house sounds like spooky fun. I am loving that HM card, perfect for your Son's birthday. It is dark so quickly now I try to make the best of the daylight hours with lots of walking. Stay safe xx

Hi Sandra, gorgeous Christmas card, papers are so pretty.
The House Mouse card is fun too and I am sure that your Grandson will love it.
I'm surprised they celebrate Halloween, we had a young girl live with us for a year from Portugal as an exchange student. She had such fun dressing up and trick or treating with our daughter.

Sandra, Wonderful cards. I am already tired of the dark autumn / winter days. They make me feel so cold and sleepy.

Your cars are lovely. The Christmas card is gorgeous and the Halloween/Birthday card is perfect for an October 30th birthday.

Will be setting my clocks back tonight. Yep, the days are getting shorter. But only five months until spring. And I get a break from yard work. LOL. Super sweet cards! Cute Halloween mouse. Card making really is better than therapy. My mind just focuses on the creative process.

I think that Poinsettias on a christmas card always look so classy. Love the little mouse card too. Moving the clocks forward or back doesn't have much effect here as we eat when we are hungry, go to bed when we are tired and watch tv on play back!!. Hugs Mrs A.
