Polkadoodles Quickie Christmas

It was my turn to pick the challenge over at Polkadoodles this week and I decided to go with
Quickie Christmas Cards
You know what it's like, you suddenly realise there is only two weeks to go to the big day and you still haven't made all your Christmas cards, (unless you're super duper organised, which I am not) so I want to see quick, simple cards, with not too many layers or embellishments, something that you can easily make a lot of in a short space of time.

 I used the trees and reindeer images from a Sundae of Seasons, layered them up in Photoshop and coloured a sky background, I then printed them straight onto card, cut, folded, added a gorgeous saddle stitch ribbon and a couple of Jingle bells, both from MeiFlower, some glitter to the trees and layered up the reindeer's head, and there you have it, my very quick card.

The Jingle Bells are coloured with Promarkers and I added glossy accents to his nose.

Check out my teamies quick Christmas inspiration over on the Polkadoodles blog and you have until Sunday 18th December Noon GMT to get your entries in.
