Let's Get this Celebration Started!

Hi bloggie friends.  In case you missed it, I'm having a Christmas in July celebration during this whole month. All you have to do is leave a comment on every Christmas related post in order to join in the fun.  At the end of the month, I will have a package of  Christmas blog candy to give away to one lucky winner. For more details see the original post here.

Now to kick off the month, I'm starting with a card I made for the Christmas Cards All Year 'Round DT.  Yes, we are back!!! :-)  And we now have two teams ~  The Gingerbread Gals who post on the 1st of every month and the Christmas Belles who post on the 15th of each month as a reminder and further inspiration for you :-)  

July Challenge ~ Anything Christmas/Festive

Our Sponsor this month is:

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

There is also a prize from Deanne, our DT coordinator, to be won.

I made a curtain fold card and used an image called Hanging Kitty.

I hope you get your holiday supplies and make a project to play along with us.
This challenge runs from 1st - 31st of July 2016.
Please visit the CCAYR blog to see what the Gingerbread Gals have created for your inspiration, and while you're there, please read through the few rules for this challenge.
I always draw such wonderful inspiration from you all, my crafting friends.  Can't wait to see all your beautiful and festive creations. 

Now, remember, in order to play along with my Christmas in July celebration, you will need to leave a comment on every Christmas card I post during the month, beginning with this one.

Good luck everyone.
I will be back soon with another Christmas card.

Till then,
