Bright colours for Christmas

It was my turn to choose the theme for this fortnight's challenge for the Christmas Card Club and quite a while ago I chose 'bright colours' - which seemed a great idea at the time, but it had me having to put my thinking cap on as to what I could use. Then I remembered a My Mind's Eye paper pad that I bought when down in Eastbourne from That Craft Place called 12 days of Christmas - the papers are quite zingy, bright colours.

Happy campers 4 is also looking for bright colours, also Without words for November: whizz bang.

I've used the sketch for Always playing with paper merry Monday 41:

I die cut circles using a nestie with my cuttlebug and added some Craftime reindeer that I've had for ages and ages and never opened the packet, so I'm also showing this for my own CHNC challenge 99, which is to use something more than six months old.

This is also for:

Holly jolly Christmas: inspired by a carol - Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer (although I know you can't see his red nose here!)
Little scrap pieces fun Friday: use an animal
Craft your passion 136: CAS
Totally gorjuss 158: plain and simple
Crazy amigo: stripes
