CHNC challenge extra for July mid-month inspiration.

Mid-month has come round so quickly again - difficult to think that we are now much nearer to Christmas 2015 than 2014. It's time for some mid-month inspiration from the team. We would love you to join in our July challenge here.

For my card I used  Aurora Wings Christmas owl with Santa hat, colouring with chameleon pens and matting on to an offcut of paper, then on to a couple more Christmas offcuts (the main background is BoBunny). Poinsettias from Poundland. I added Art Institute fine glitter to the edges of the hat.

  17. This is such a delightful little card! It's about 100 degrees in my neck of the woods, so I loved seeing a Christmas card! And this one really is clever. I like how you made it with traditional colors, yet you've given it a great sense of whimsicality with the cute owl in his hat! Great combination of elements and I like how it makes such a happy scene. And your post made me excited for Christmas (even as the fan is blowing on my face), so thank you for that reminder!! Thanks, too, for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
