So as most of you know I'm a StampNation member and absolutely love being one.
StampNation offers weekly challenges (that never close) and great crafty inspiration and tons of video tutorials, friendships and amazing guest designers and design team members.
Well one of this month's challenges was what else but Christmas in July, but with a twist.
We were challenged to create Christmas cards with a decidedly summer pallet. 
Here's the inspiration photo:

So of course I got busy and created not just one card but lots of them, using this fun color pallet. You'll see even more tomorrow. Can you create holiday cards in the heat of the summer? 
Have you tried using non-traditional colors? Give it a try! You'll be surprised how much fun it is.

I hope you enjoy the hop! Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for even more holiday happiness.
