Christmas Fun DT Piece - Quick Christmas Card

I challenged myself to make at least two Christmas cards a week after being down to the wire again this past Christmas.  I'm hoping that the incentive of meeting the themes of this challenge blog DT will encourage me to vary what I do as well, I am often a lazy crafter and go for the easy option, but I find challenge blogs and DT work make me think outside my comfort zone, or make me look at things more simply.  I hope you enjoy playing along with us this year and that by the end of the year you have a tidy little stash of cards ready made so you're not covered in DS tape and glitter on Christmas Eve this year.

This Card was made from an old kit I had "stumbled upon" during a craft room clear out, quick and easy but effective.


I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Lovely card Jax. I'm going to make Christmas cards during the year too, too much of a chore leaving it 'til Oct/Nov/Dec.
