Tis the Season

Christmas in July, yes! This is the first summer in 5 years where I haven't been busy with Christmas card workshops, it seems very strange indeed. So I guess I need to make the cards on my own and I used this beautiful image from Doodle Pantry. It does come in a coloured version, however I coloured this one myself and really like how it turned out. A very fast, simple and easy card. I'm entering this into:
