Q is for Quick Christmas

Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Peppermint

Sorry folks, this is going to be a quick post. I'm really not doing too well. spent most of yesterday in bed, and plan to head back there as soon as I type this up.

guess quick is the name of the game for today, as that is the new challenge theme over at ABC Christmas Challenges. We want to see your quick projects. The fabulous Shape EZ templates are our sponsors.

I went for a super quick set up with my project today, using pre-colored images and card fronts from the Doodle Pantry. they have so many beautiful images and designs to choose from! The 'Holly Stag' set comes with papers, images, tags, sentiments, and card fronts. perfect for a quick project! I combined this with the Shape EZ poinsettia. the petals were outlined with candy cane stickles. some Spellbinders dies, buttons, & vintage trim make the project come together fairly fast. cutting out the flowers and waiting on the stickles to dry took most of the time! ;)
