Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop on July 17th to 20th from 9 am to 11 pm CST. Thank you for joining me to help me celebrate our Christ's birthday. I love all things about Christmas and start planning Christmas as soon as the Christmas tree comes down. So I decided to host this fun celebration with some of the most talented crafters that I know.

I do have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for the "Grand Prize" you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment for each day of the blog hop and also become a follower of my blog, my dt blog at The blog candy is $25 in free files over at

If you came from Carla's blog you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning go to Lisa's blog.

This hop runs from July 17th - 20th, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY! Please come back tomorrow to see what new projects we have created. After all it's Christmas in July and who doesn't like Christmas.

I decided to made a set of cards for this hop.... I found some cute little Christmas buttons the other day in my stash and thought WOW I have had these for years so I decided to use them for the cards. I also used some of my very favorite older CTMH paper from my stash.. Also all card designs are from Wishes, a CTMH sketch book of card designs.

My first card is called Geometric and it is 4 1/4 x 51/2 I embossed the red, inked everything (as usual) and used a button as the sentiment.

Now on to Mickie's blog to see her projects...

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by again for other projects.
