Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 14 December 2012 - Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Today sees the final challenge of the year over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  The topic for this month is a "quick and easy Christmas card" - and we do mean "quick and easy" and not ones that have taken hours and hours to make as we are always on the hunt for last minute quick cards.
The longest part of these two cards was the colouring of the Ching Chou-Kuik "Holly Fairy" Sweet Pea stamp (and if you like her too she's on SALE at Sweet Pea Stamps for $2.88 at the moment!!). She is one of my favourite Christmas stamps ever.  I have coloured both with Promarkers and torn around the edges and edged with a chalk ink pad.  I have done some simple matting and layering using some papers I was given last year.  The top card has been finished off with some die-cut holly, gems, doily and a die-cut sentiment.
The second card has been finished off with some Crafty Ann's poinsettias, doily, gems and a die-cut sentiment.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

One Sweet Challenge - Choice of either holiday related or New Year
Sweet Pea Stamps - Show us your blog
Craft Your Passion - Stitching - stitching on my backing paper
Love to Create - Anything goes
Totally Stampalicious - Anything goes
