Crimbo Crackers Challenge 50 - Quick and Easy

I'm having some real issues with Blogger and different interfaces - I schedule the posts and they either disappear or move on a year!  And half the time I have to use the html code tab as the 'compose' button does not work for me!  I've not been available today to check that the post has actually published so I'll have to find a way around that in the future!

Anyway, there is another new Crimbo Crackers challenge! The theme for the fortnight is:

Quick and Easy

And to show you just how quick and easy it can be, I made these 4 cards (variations on a theme) in about an hour!  I've used the same oh so cute Jellypark image - Angel Girl Nativity which I've coloured with Promarkers and added glitter glue to the wings.

I've also added glitter glue around the edge of the card.  Layered the image with offcuts of various coloured card and cardstock and then made the embellishment with a die cut and then a little star in the centre.  Minimal colouring and quick embellishments - the glitter glue took longer to dry than it did to make the cards!

Good luck with the Crimbo Crackers challenge - for more details pop over to the blog!
