Christmas in July Blog Hop

Wow! Really? Who can think about Christmas with all this heat?!

Well anyway, here goes...

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop!

This hop is being hosted by Jazzy from Jazzy's Cards. If you are coming from Gina's then you are in the right place, but if you are just checking on my blog and stumbled across this, please go start at the beginning. This is Jazzy's first time hosting a hop, and I know she would appreciate the love.

The theme for the hop was something Christmas related that included the colors green and red.

So I dug out all my Christmas stuff and started searching for ideas. When I came across the background paper, I knew I wanted to use it.

I cut the tree from Create a Critter using green glitter paper from DCWV. I had the hardest time deciding what to do next. I found out that I don't have anymore red bling and that I have way too many ribbon choices (or not enough choices depending on how you look at it). I just couldn't find the perfect addition. I finally settled on the tiny red bow. And I actually kinda like it. I am liking the simplicity of the card so I don't think I am going to add a sentiment.

Thanks so much for checking out my project. Now please hop on over to Kathie's and remember to wish everyone a "Merry Christmas" in order to be eligible for Jazzy's Cricut Cartridge Blog Candy.

Here is the hop line up just in case
