Crafting for all Seasons #57 Christmas in July

Good morning all.
Hope everyone is well. We're having a great holiday between the teenage gripes! Certainly can't fault the weather we've been enjoying. We're currently in Cornwall, near St Ives and move on to Devon on Friday.

Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Bingo". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy who gave the DT images to work with. 

I've used my favourite snowman image from sheet #380 which I've die cut with a decorative oval die from Spellbinders. Papers, ribbon, sentiment and gems are from my stash.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

CHNC Extra - anything goes
