Simply Create Too Challenge 41 Midway Extra - Christmas In July

The posts are going to come thick and fast this morning - this is the first of three!  We are at the midway point of the current Simply Create Too challenge which means that there is just under a week of the challenge left and the theme is:

Christmas In July

And it can't be done without Santa!  And this Santa is courtesy of Dr Digi!  I've coloured the Naughty or Nice digi with Promarkers and then the background with watercolour pencils.  Papers are from DCWV Christmas Wishes 6x6 stack which, to be honest, I've had for a number of years so its about time I used some of it up!

The star is wooden and was a different colour before I covered it with an offcut of paper!  I bought a load of the little packs from Tesco last year - 10 for £1 which is not bad!  I also had some left from a previous year which I bought in the January sale!

Some stickles around the edges of the star and image and its complete!  Good luck with the Simply Create Too challenge and Santa can be yours for just £2 in the Dr Digi store!
