Peace and Harmony - Christmas in July

Sunny Sunday Bloggers,

Well, it is laugh time here in the 'Cat Studio'.  DH is tell me the jokes that he 'says' are from the fur-babies mouths.  He is a hoot!  Telling me that Lucy is swatting the mice so that they squeak ... a no battery 'toy.'  Also, Bubbe is wanting to log on to 'Cat Central' online to check out 'Shelia'.  He is always full of some sort of sillyness.  Never a dull day @ the 'Cat Studio'.

Mary @ CardzTV is having her first challenge of Christmas in July.  You have until midnight tonight (EDT) to get your card posted.  Here is a cutie that I whipped up for the occasion.

I did a lot more doodling than I usually do.  I even enhanced some of the snowflake/stars on the patterned paper.  I really enjoyed making this little owl.  I made it especially for my Aunt and Uncle in Dallas.  He went to Rice University.  Their mascot is an OWL!

Size:  A2 landscape (4.25" x 5.50")
   PP mat is cut @ 4" x 5.25"
   Sentiment mat is cut @ 1.5" x 2.25"
Owl:  WINTER FROLIC, pg 37, Owl and all layers cut @ 3.5"
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (Kraft, Light Blue, Light Green, Hunter Green, Wine, Gold and Brown)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (The Christmas and Winter Stack 2011)
Accents:  Favorite Findings (Dark Blue Buttons)
Color Medium:  Sukara (White Jelly Roll Pen) and Pentel (Black Energel 1.0mm)
Fiber:  DMC Floss (792 - DK Cornflower Blue)
Fonts:  Font Diner (Crazy Girls Blond BTN Lt) and Hallmark (Bix Antique Script Hmk Bold)

Now it is your turn.  Make a Christmas card with an animal on it and enter it into CardzTV's Christmas in July Challenge.  Hurry, challenge ends tonight @ midnight (EDT)!

Thanks for stopping by and hurry back there will be a new card up tomorrow.

Toodles and Happy Crafting,
