Bring us some figgy pudding .....

My second card of the evening is another Christmas card, and again I've made use of some magazine freebies, this time a sample pack of papers and images from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD, which I have also actually got.

The challenge the other day on 365 Cards was a picture of an advert to inspire us, I chose the colours of green brown and cream, which works well with these images. The challenge on Polka Doodles was to create and quick and easy Christmas card, and this one was very easy and very quick, but I still think it looks better than most shop bought ones! The last challenge I would like to enter is over on Crafty Catz which this week is to include spots and stripes. I could probably have posted just about any card I've ever made for that! However this card does include both spots and stripes so it should be just fine.
