Catching up.....

At the NEC last week, I bought myself a couple of cute little Christmas stamps that need very little colouring on purpose so that I could do lots of them quickly and catch up a bit with my Christmas cards. I've made six snowmen and six tree ones so far in traditional colours but I'm going to do a few more in non-traditional colours too..... I'd made a quick easel card at the workshop I went to last weekend (see bottom piccie for my makes...) so I took inspiration from that for these ones.
They have been coloured with promarkers with glitter glue added for sparkle (although you can't see it very well). I cut them and layered them onto coloured card using my nesties. The papers are Deck the Halls by Papermania, then there's a bit of ribbon and die-cut sentiments from Daisy and Dandelion. Quick and simple, and hopefully a better attempt at clean and simple than my last one!
